It’s that time of year again, time for the people at the Academy Awards to tell us exactly what the best movies of the year were, along with all the other “best ofs”.  But some people prefer to hear about the worst of the bunch as opposed to the best.  That, my friends, is where the Golden Raspberry Awards come in.

In its 33rd year, the Razzies are dedicated to bringing attention to bad cinema and making sure that every mangy dog has its day.  This year’s pile of refuse has some wonderfully odiferous offerings, including what must be a record.  It seems that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 has managed to get nominated in every single category, including twice in one of them.

Yup, Twilight has certainly made its lasting impression in the pages of cinema history, though it’s probably closer to the way a freshly used public toilet can make an impression.

But let’s not stop with Twilight.  There are plenty of crap movies that were released in 2012 and they too should be recognized in all their glory.  Battleship is another one that really hit the Razzie list hard, coming up with seven nominations and That’s My Boy managed to gather eight.

Better yet, just check the list below and see if any of your favorites managed to make it:
