I don’t understand why Hunger Games gets praised for killing kids and Twilight gets ridiculed for a sweet love story. But I’m one of those ridiculous old grandmothers who is obsessed with Robert(lol).

Miss, I’m 14, but I couldn’t have put it better :D Pride and Prejudice, I guess (Jane Austen really was on to something with that…)… Ah, well, we have to vote for Adam Sandler, then :D

Well-deserved Razzies and Twilight deserves to win every one of them!! Twilight didn’t make it this far because it was actually a good story – it’s because the amateur author “accidentally” got everyone overly-obsessed with it. She could have written any ‘ol ending in Breaking Dawn (and that seems like what she did), and SMeyer’s addicted fanbase would have lapped it up like honey (and they did – except for the peeps who rejected it, but we never hear about THOSE ex-fans anymore, do we?)
Twilight addictions FINALLY explained in DETAIL – includes some PR RELIEF!! If you’re struggling with a STUBBORN Twilight obsession that is driving you crazy STILL – Search for “Misfit Chick’s Twilight Blogpost” out in Internetland or click on my name and scroll down to the Twilight post.

I have no idea who the voting members of the Razzie Group is but when you criticize the most popular movie series ever made and you ridicule a cast of young unknowns when the series began, and look at them now all you are saying is you are ignorant about what the viewing public wants. I am tired of blood, guts, killings, blatant sex and vulgarity. Obviously there are a lot of movie goers who feel the same way. Start making more quality movies and stop belittling what appeals to the average movie goer.

Some good points, Tom. I was amazed at the cross section of moviegoers at BD2 – young couples, parents with young teens, older people, too. Also, quite a few men. Yes, they took a cast of unknowns and made them into stars. Some will have great careers, some won’t. The future is up to them but they have been given the chance and their fans are happy. We do need more movies that do not emphasize blatant sex and vulgarity.

And, the other point is how the cast deals with the fame. How the LEADS deal with the fame and their life… that’s the magic of it, I guess. A real love story within a fictional one :)

I am also sick and tired of all the over dramatized faces and facial expressions, and the blood and aggression, and sexual aggression, it is outdated.
What I do not understand is Twilight has the Biggest Fanbase ever (a bit divided at present) but the biggest Fanbase altogether, and although devided every Fan did enjoy the books and the movies, and loved the cast, every actor performed his or her role to perfection, and gave us a Love Story equal to “Romeo and Juliet” or even better, the movies put a different spin on the the normal blood sucking demons called Vampires, and succeeded.
I hope in years to come these movies will get the recognition they deserve, this is very confusing.

She’d just turned 17. When they started filming, she couldn’t even do night shoots.As soon as her b-day came they gave her a cake that said, welcome to night shoots.

It´s unfair not to get more recognition…I´ve never seen such a big fan base as that created by twilight…..Let alone the millions of dollars this franchise has generated in the movie business!!!!

If they were such good actors as they are handsome, they would be in the Academy Awards not in this category, since beauty is not enough, it is a good lesson for life!

@ Rosita: the saga was meant for teens, not to be seriously deep. The saga does have a teenaged ratings attatched.

maybe they have to get ugly.A lot of actors have to get ugly in a movie before they can get recognized by Oscar.They’re still young though and have plenty of time.

It’s a shame that Twilight didn’t get more recognition, this franchise has made billions of dollars for all involved, doesn’t that count for something??

@ TRACY123 : It should and I agree. Outside of Harry Potter and Star Wars,I cannot remember any saga (series, franchise, whatever you call them) that has had anywhere near the fanbase that Twilight has.

Tracy123 – I believe the Twilight Saga has received recognition from its millions of fans who have gone to these movies and love the actors involved. Many movies that have received Oscars were totally boring to me, especially the ones being raved over by the Hollywood elite. Ben Affleck’s awsome ARGO is being snubbed at the Oscars but an American history drama Lincoln is right up there. If there was an award for the most successful franchise is movie history, then without a doubt, it would go to Twilight and guess what – no foul language, over the top sexual situations or ugly sets or – well, I could go on and on.

EXACTLY… finally someone thinks like ME… It’s not about Oscars, though. If you think about it, this is one of the rarest awards out there, because it’s the first. There are more Oscars on the planet than MTV Movie Awards. Technically, if you think about it, Oscars aren’t that precious at all… but it’s about the sense of community. Our fans stick together when they have a purpose, not like others (although they sometimes take TOO MUCH interest in the actors’ lives…). And about there being no stuff that can be considered ‘rude’? That just proves that a franchise doesn’t need to be overtly ‘adult’ to get recognised :)
