Adapted from the Nicktoons Productions animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender received five Razzie awards — including Worst Picture — on Saturday night, the now-traditional Night Before the Oscars.
The 31st Annual Razzies were announced in satirical ceremonies held at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre.
The Last Airbender was based on the TV show about a young hero who can reunite feuding nations of people who can control air, water, fire and earth.
Not quite sweeping the ceremony, but still handily leading the pack among this year’s Razzie choices, was Razzie repeat offender Shyamalan’s “reimagining” of the faux-anime TV series into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that’s even possible!).
