A nice bit of schadenfreude for Twilight haters: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the merciful final installment in the vampire saga, leads this year's nominations for the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka Razzies), which honor the year's worst films. It managed to grab a nomination in each of the 10 categories, plus an 11th nomination because it was nominated twice in the Worst Screen Couple category, E! reports. Lead actress Kristen Stewart scored a second Worst Actress nomination too, for Snow White and the Huntsman. Other much-dishonored films: Adam Sandler's That's My Boy, with nine nominations, and Rihanna's Battleship, with seven. Awards are handed out the day before the Oscars, Feb. 23.

On a more serious note, BAFTA nominations also came out today, and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln dominated that field with 10 nominations, the Los Angeles Times reports. Tom Hooper's Les Miserables and Ang Lee's Life of Pi came in second with nine nominations each, followed by James Bond flick Skyfall with eight. All of the above except Skyfall were nominated for best film, along with Ben Affleck's Argo and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty. Those five best film nominees also made up the five Director's Guild of America Award nominees that were announced yesterday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The DGA Awards will be held Feb. 2; the BAFTAs are Feb. 10. (Read more Razzies stories.)
