The 31st Annual RAZZIE® Awards

Last Airbender Nabs Worst Movie Award
[Source: Razzie.com] Leading the pack among this year’s RAZZIE choices is RAZZIE Repeat Offender M. Night Shyamalan’s “re-imagining” of the faux-anime’ TV series THE LAST AIRBENDER into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that’s even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, AIRBENDER also “won” Worst Screenplay, a brand-new RAZZIE category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D, and Worst Supporting Actor Jackson Rathbone (who had the misfortune to appear in both AIRBENDER and 2010’s other most-RAZZIE-nominated title, TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.

The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self-congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of The Official Razzie Movie Guide and Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies. “Winners” were determined by mailing ballots to 637 voters in 46 U.S. states and 17 foreign countries. Electronic voting and certification of this year’s Final RAZZIE® Ballot was handled by Vote-Now.com. Among the sponsors of this year’s awards are Kickbars.com and USObituariesOnline.com. The Barnsdall Gallery Theatre is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. 

The Last Airbender Movie "wins" Razzies for:
  • Worst Picture
  • Worst Director - M. Night Shyamalan
  • Worst Screenplay
  • Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D
  • Worst Supporting Actor - Jackson Rathbone
