The Sex and the City sequel and the third installment of teen vampire series Twilight were top of the flops, as nominees for Hollywood's Oscars spoof -- the Razzies -- were revealed on Monday.
Renowned Hollywood actors and actresses Jennifer Aniston, Ashton Kutcher, Robert Pattinson, Miley Cyrus and Barbra Streisand were also nominated for their parts in 2010 major studio productions by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, which organizes the annual salute to the worst of the worst.
Last year, "most of what Hollywood released was either a remake, a 'reboot,' a 're-imagining'... or an outright rip-off. In other words, it was a banner year for only one of Tinsel Town's best-known award shows... the one that dis-honors Worst Achievements in Film," said the foundation.
The nominees for worst picture were big-budget Clash Of The Titans, The Last Airbender, Sex & The City 2, Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Vampires Suck, for the awards show set for February 26 -- the eve of the prestigious Oscars.
The foundation singled out Last Airbender director M. Night Shyamalan -- a "repeat offender," according to a statement released alongside the nominations.
"In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, the film is up for Worst Remake, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (the entire cast) and a brand-new Razzie category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D," said the foundation.
Up for worst actor was comedian/musician Jack Black for his role in Gulliver's Travels, action star Gerard Butler in the weakly received The Bounty Hunter, Ashton Kutcher for two critical flops he made last year -- Killers and Valentine's Day -- and for Twilight: Eclipse, the two leading actors Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson.
The cast of "bling-obsessed superslick chick flick Sex and the City 2" -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- all got nods for the worst actress nomination.
In the worst screen couple/ensemble category, the foundation jumped all over terrible chemistry in supposedly romantic movies, such as Aniston and Gerald Butler in The Bounty Hunter, and the entire cast of actors in Twilight: Eclipse and The Last Airbender.
