While the Oscar nominations may be announced tomorrow, today brings the official nominations for the awards focusing on the opposite side of the quality spectrum.

Deadline has revealed the nominations for this year’s Razzie Awards, and they are a who’s who of absolute garbage.

Leading the way are THE LAST AIBENDER and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, both garnering a monstrous eight nominations, including a special double dip for one Jackson Rathbone, who gets Worst Supporting Actor nominations for both films.  Also, apparently good films can even get nominations, as uttered in the same vein as LITTLE FOCKERS, MACHETE and VALENTINE’S DAY, Jessica Alba has gotten a nomination for every film she stared in in 2010, even the wonderfully dark THE KILLER INSIDE ME.  While she was actually really great in that Michael Winterbottom film, it’s not a nomination that I’ll go blue in the face trying to denounce.  It just comes as jarring when joining films like KILLERS, THE BOUNTY HUNTER and JONAH HEX.
