"The Last Airbender" crowned worst film at Razzies
Action flick "The Last Airbender" and comedy "Sex and the City 2" were the top movies on Saturday to earn the wrath of Razzie voters in the annual Oscar spoof that spotlights Hollywood's worst performances.
"Valentine's Day" stars Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba saw their performances turn sour and picked up Golden Raspberry Awards for worst actor and actress. They also were pilloried for two other titles: he in "Killers" and she in "Little Fockers."
But it was a worse night for M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender." It "won" five Razzies to eclipse all other 2010 movies.
Shyamalan was named worst director for his flick, and to and to his further discredit, the film was blinded by this Raspberry: "worst eye-gouging mis-use of 3-D."
"The Last Airbender," which came out last summer, is a fantasy action movie about a boy with the ability to manipulate natural elements, who uses his power to restore harmony to a world divided into warring factions.
The film made nearly $320 million (198 million pounds) at global box offices, but it received only a 6 percent favorable rating at review aggregating website RottenTomatoes.com.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis, the four principle stars of "Sex and the City 2," were collectively named worst actress at the Razzies.
The so-called "winners" were determined by ballots from some 657 voters in the United States and 17 foreign countries.
