'Twilight' co-stars (left to right) Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson attend the 2011 People's Choice Awards on Jan. 5, 2011 in Los Angeles. All three have been nominated for a Razzie Award, the annual celebration of the worst movies of the year.

One day before Oscar nominations are announced, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “The Last Airbender” and “Sex & the City 2” each received multiple nods today for the 31st annual Razzie Awards, dishonoring the worst in movies for 2010.

Presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, the Razzies are the alternative to the Oscar, bestowing prizes for worst film, worst actor and actress, director and screenplay, among other distinctions.

Last year, Sandra Bullock made history by becoming the first actress to win an Oscar (“The Blind Side”) and a Razzie (“All About Steve”) in the same year. Halle Berry also has both awards, but she won in different years.

Bullock and Berry also have a particular distinction in Razzie lore • they both showed up to personally accept their awards. Bullock even distributed DVD copies of “All About Steve” to members of the audience at the Razzie Awards ceremony.

The Razzies will be presented Feb. 26, the day before the Oscars.
