Unlike their vaunted counterparts at the DGA, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the folks who dole out the annual Razzie Awards -- celebrating the worst cinema has to offer for 33 years -- are honest enough to admit crap rises to the top.

Attempts to cauterize big schnoz Streisand and hit Brooklyn Decker with a double-decker are most welcome. Picking on a critic-proof Goliath like Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part II -- it earned nominations in every category -- is too easy, like shooting spitballs at a stealth bomber.

It's far from the worst picture of the year. If the Razzies had the nerve, they'd simply duplicate the list of pictures the Academy nominates. One would like to think Sean Anders knew he was making garbage when he signed on to direct That's My Boy. Is his technical handiwork that much more miserable than what Tom 'Are You Ready for More Close-Ups?' Hooper did to Les Miserables?

When all is said and done, just give every award to Nic Cage. He earned it!

Here are the nominees.
