While some awards like the BAFTAs celebrate the year's best, others choose to recognize the worst. The Razzie awards have just released their nominations for the worst movies and performances of the year. And the vampire saga "Twilight" dominated the list.

Despite taking in an impressive 814 million US dollars at the global box office, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" received the most Razzie nominations for worst film and movie performances of 2012, with a whopping 11 nominations.

Robert Pattinson was nominated for worst actor. His co-star Kristen Stewart went one better, with two worst actress nominations for her roles in "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman". Both actors were also featured on the "worst screen couple" shortlist.

Adam Sandler’s comedy "That’s My Boy" netted the second most nominations, with a total of eight.

Director-actor-writer Tyler Perry garnered multiple nominations, including worst actress for his recurring role in drag as Madea in "Madea’s Witness Protection," worst actor for "Good Deeds" and "Alex Cross," and worst director for "Madea" and "Good Deeds."

A notable snub was sci-fi adventure flop "John Carter," which Walt Disney Company said cost the studio some 200 million dollars.

Other notable nominees included Nicolas Cage, who landed worst actor nominations for two films - "Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance" and "Seeking Justice" and Oscar winner Barbra Streisand, nominated for worst actress in "The Guilt Trip."
