Razzies crown Shyamalan’s Airbender worst film of 2010

The Oscars are upon us tonight! But in the meantime, we have the Razzies, which last night awarded M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3-D and even Worst Supporting Actor in Jackson Rathbone, who was dual-nominated for Twilight: Eclipse.

Surprisingly, that’s the only ‘award’ for any of the Twilight crew – and all the other genre offerings. Sex and the City 2 was the runner-up with three Razzies, including Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel and Worst Actress for Sarah Jessica Parker. The remaining acting awards went to Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba.

Eclipse, Airbender lead Razzie nominations

True confession: The Razzies are my favorite movie awards, particularly in years that gave them plenty of crap to sift through. We’ve been so blessed this year: Genre nominations for worst picture include The Last Airbender and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, as well as the Matt Lanter-led spoof Vampires Suck.

Lanter was spared an lead acting nom, though nods went to Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart as well as Jonah Hex’s Megan Fox. In the supporting categories, Airbender’s Nicola Peltz, Dev Patel and Jackson Rathbone (also for Eclipse) all got nods. And not to leave anyone out, both Eclipse and Airbender are up for Worst Screen Ensemble.

Both films, plus Vampires Suck, also hold court in Worst Director, Worst Screenplay (if Shyamalan isn’t a lock for that, I’ll eat my ATLA DVDs) and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel.

In the brand-new Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D category, the nominations are Cats & Dogs 2: Revenge of Kitty Galore, Clash of the Titans, The Last Airbender, Nutcracker 3-D and Saw VII.

Basically, you know it’s a good/bad year when a dud like Clash of the Titans can’t muster up more than two nominations.

And the rest: Game of Thrones, Razzies, poor King Arthur and Futurama

Winter is actually coming. HBO must have liked the pilot for A Game of Thrones, because they ordered nine more episodes: By cable standards, that’s pretty much an entire season. Filming starts in June, and we can expect the series to debut next spring.

Shocker! Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen took the Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay. As for actual entertainment value, Sandra Bullock showed up in person to accept Worst Actress for All About Steve: If she gets an Academy Award tonight (for The Blind Side) she’ll become the first actress to win both a Razzie and an Oscar in the same year.

Nothing new under the sun. Guy Ritchie wants to remake Excalibur “in the tone of Star Wars.” There’s also something going down with Warren Ellis, and didn’t Showtime have The Tudors team signed to do a Camelot series? To all this I say: Haven’t the Arthurian legends suffered enough?

Good news, everyone! Futurama returns to its rightly place as a half-hour show in June.
