"Kristen Stewart is so expressionless she might as well be a brick wall"

They are the film awards that Hollywood actors dread winning. But on Saturday night, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part II' cleaned up at The Razzies, the spoof award show which names and shames the worst Hollywood films last year.

The finale in the vampire franchise, 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' dominated the Golden Raspberry ceremony, 'winning' seven awards including Worst Actress for Kristen Stewart.



Her co-star Taylor Lautner scooped the Worst Supporting Actor going along with the Worst Screen Couple for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.

Although Twilight also managed  to scoop the Worst Ensemble award, 'Twilight' leading man Robert Pattinson was pipped to the Worst Actor accolade by Adam Sandler who won for his box office flop 'That's My Boy'.

'Twilight' movies have been well represented in Razzie nominations over the years but not won any key awards before.

"I have a pet theory, which is that the box office on 'Twilight' films is very impressive, but my theory is that instead of 40 million individual girls going to see it, it's eight million girls going to see it five times each," said Razzies founder John Wilson, adding, "People who love those movies just adore them. I believe the attitude of people who really love 'Twilight' movies toward this subject is very similar to the pomposity with which the Academy Awards addresses the whole rest of the world. Our whole existence is all about making fun of pompous, so 'Twilight' really is right up our alley."

The 'Twilight' finale also won for Worst Screen Ensemble and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. 

For worst picture, it beat 'Battleship', 'That's My Boy', the family flick 'The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure' and Eddie Murphy's comedy flop 'A Thousand Words'.

Stewart's worst-actress prize came for both Twilight and her fairy-tale film 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'

"Acting should involve having an expression on your face, and she is blank, other than the morose kind of half-Goth thing her character does," Wilson said.

'I didn't realise Snow White and Bella were soul sisters, because of the very limited range of what she can do. I think it was Dorothy Parker who said about Katharine Hepburn that she runs the 'gamut of emotions from A to B'. Kristen Stewart is so expressionless she might as well be a brick wall."

Adam Sandler's worst actor shame was his second-straight win after 2011's 'Jack and Jill', which swept all 10 Razzie categories a year ago.

"He's an enormous star who is on what I call the "down-alator" of his career." Wilson said. "He's about to step off the same cliff Eddie Murphy stepped off about 10 years ago. Eddie Murphy has never come back, and Murphy is more talented."

Pop singer Rihanna won worst supporting actress for the action dud 'Battleship'.

Sandler's 'That's My Boy', which also won the worst-screenplay Razzie, flopped at the box office.
