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!).
