'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' and 'The Last Airbender' are both up for nine awards at the Razzies.

Among the dubious honours the supernatural love story is up for are Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, while Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are competing for the title of Worst Actor and Kristen Stewart is up for Worst Actress.

The 'Last Airbender' will battle 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' in the Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay categories and its other nods include

M. Night Shyamalan being in the running to be crowned Worst Director and it will also challenge 'Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore', 'Clash of the Titans', 'The Nutcracker in 3D' and 'Saw 3D' for new prize the Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3-D.

The category has been created to reflect Hollywood's current obsession to make movies in 3-D following the success of 'Avatar'.

The other nominees for the night's most unwanted accolade Worst Picture are 'The Bounty Hunter' - which starred Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler - 'Sex and the City 2' and 'Vampires Suck', which was a spoof of the 'Twilight' films.

Speaking about the amount of gongs 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' is up for, Razzies founder John Wilson said: "I know people who are into 'Twilight' who take it totally seriously and they're very vociferous. Those of us who are not 'Twi-hards', we don't get it. I don't actually know any teenage girls who have had to make the choice between a werewolf and a vampire."

Other nominees include Cher who is up for the Worst Supporting Actress statuette for her performance in 'Burlesque', Billy Ray Cyrus who is in the running for the Worst Supporting Actor gong for his appearance in 'The Spy Next Door' and Sylvester Stallone who could be crowned Worst Director for his film 'The Expendables'.
