The essence of Worst Screen Couple is two people co-starring in a movie together who are trying to be cute and trying to have "chemistry," but they just come off looking like two complete idiots on screen.
Twilight is a perfect example of that. They had some chemistry in New Moon, but for some reason the already flat performances got even worse in Eclipse and Dawn 1...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that Worst Couple category aimed at the chemistry and the ability of the actors to come across as in love with each other? Without questioning the reasons of their characters' love now, I keep wondering why people nominate Pattinson & Stewart.
Or is it focusing on the mismatched characters, or only the acting alongside each other? Then it would make more sense to nominate them, because one thing you can't hold against them, they did come across as having a bit of chemistry. There is a huge difference to, let's say Sandler & Aniston, or even Pattinson & Witherspoon, in coming across as a couple. Sandler and Witherspoon were rather bland in that matter and never managed to make their affection for their partners apparent on screen.
