Razzies 2011: Last Airbender and Eclipse top nominations

The 2011 Razzie nominations are here, and M. Night Shyamalan's big screen adaptation of television cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender is up for 8 including new category 'Worst Eye-Gouging Use of 3D'.

Twilight Saga: Eclipse attracted an equal number of nods.

Shyamalan is maintaining a Razzie record that includes nominations - and wins - for The Happening (2008) and Lady in the Water (2006).

In the past Shyamalan has stated that he never listens to criticism of his work - "I just shut the door and write." His current projects include making two sequels to The Last Airbender .

British actor Dev Patel picked up a Worst Supporting Actor nom, alongside fellow Airbender alumni and Eclipse actor Jackson Rathbone.

Other films that received multiple nods were Sex and the City 2 , which gained 7 nominations, and the unloved Jennifer Aniston romcom The Bounty Hunter , which gained 3.

Critically loathed spoof Vampires Suck completed the Worst Picture line-up.

The Razzie Awards ceremony is a great place to spot Hollywood's good sports - however, we predict that Mr Shyamalan will be staying in to write his next magnum opus on the big night.
