The Razzie Awards hand out awards for the year's worst films, with "The Last Airbender" taking home five trophies.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (FEBRUARY 26, 2011) REUTERS - Action flick "The Last Airbender" and comedy "Sex and the City 2" were the top movies to earn the wrath of Razzie voters in the annual Oscar spoof that spotlights Hollywood's worst performances.

M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" "won" five Razzies to eclipse all other 2010 movies. Shyamalan was named worst director for his flick, and to his further discredit, the film was blinded by this Raspberry: "worst eye-gouging mis-use of 3-D."

The film made nearly 320 million dollars at global box offices, but it received only a 6 percent favorable rating at review aggregating website RottenTomatoes.com.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, the four principle stars of "Sex and the City 2," were collectively named worst actress at the Razzies. The film also won "Worst screen couple/Worst screen ensemble" and "Worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel."

"Valentine's Day" stars Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba saw their performances turn sour and picked up Golden Raspberry Awards for worst actor and actress. They also were pilloried for two other titles: he in "Killers" and she in "Little Fockers."

The so-called "winners" were determined by ballots from some 657 voters in the United States and 17 foreign countries.
