Film Razzies.jpgOscars, shmoscars. The nominations for the Golden Raspberry Awards -- the Razzies, as they're known -- are out today, and both the most recent "Twilight" film and a parody of the "Twilight" series are on the list.

The Razzies, founded in 1981 by a copywriter and publicist named John Wilson, celebrate the worst that Hollywood has to offer. This year the nominees for worst picture are "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," "Vampires Suck," "The Last Airbender," "The Bounty Hunter," and. "Sex and the City 2." "Eclipse" and "Airbender," in fact, tied for the most nominations, with nine apiece.

In announcing the nominees, Wilson said he actually found "Eclipse" funnier than "Vampires Suck." "I know people who are into 'Twilight' who take it totally seriously and they're very vociferous," Wilson said, according to the Associated Press. "Those of us who are not 'Twi-hards', we don't get it. I don't actually know any teenage girls who have had to make the choice between a werewolf and a vampire."

The full slate of nominees -- which include the entire cast of "Eclipse" -- can be found here.
