Vampires, werewolves and airbenders lead the pack at the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for the year's worst films.
The blockbuster supernatural tale The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and the action fantasy The Last Airbender tied for the most nominations Monday with nine each, including worst picture.
Also nominated for worst picture are Jennifer Aniston's action comedy The Bounty Hunter, Sarah Jessica Parker's romantic romp Sex and the City 2 and the Twilight parody Vampires Suck.
Twilight star Kristen Stewart had a worst-actress nomination for her role as a teen caught in a love triangle involving her vampire boyfriend (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf pal (Taylor Lautner). Pattinson and Lautner both were nominated for worst actor.
Razzies founder John Wilson said that though Vampires Suck was a Twilight spoof, Eclipse actually was funnier to watch.

The third chapter in Summit Entertainment's vampire romance fell off sharply after debuting last Wednesday with $68.5 million. That was the second-best opening-day haul ever, behind its predecessor, last year's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which opened with $72.7 million.
After that huge first day, Eclipse averaged about $23 million daily over the next four days. That includes an estimate for a slow Sunday as people turned their attention to Fourth of July activities in the States and Canada Day festivities here at home.
