I enjoy all movie types. Can't understand the fuss on Twilight. It was a good story, had fans waiting in anticipation for each sequel,is that not how you judge the success of a movie? Or was the response so good at each sequel that this time it had to be eliminated to avoid fair play. I've seen worse movies. Rob,kristen and taylor are young aspiring actors who deserve credit.oscars was so fake this year.maybe next year they will have judges who actually watch and appreciate a good movie.
You are right. I do not agree. I found myself enjoying the strained dynamic between the vampire and the human (because that is exactly the way it is supposed to be I believe). And they definitely have chemistry. I got it, along with more than several other movie patrons, I might add. Anyway I doubt many here will get it. People see exactly what they want to see, especially when it comes to everything about these movies.
And for your information I am not exactly a Twihard, I am just not blinded by the hate bandwagon and look at it as objectively as I can. Worst Screenplay I can completely agree with but definitely not Worst on-screen Couple! I have seen so much worse in many movies this year.
There is no way that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart do not have chemistry. Surely even the biggest Twilight haters should be able to see that. Even most, if not ALL critics agree with me on that! It is plain to see that nominating them for this category is simply just childishness from people who simply hate Twilight and can not intelligently step away from their hatred of a story and see what is blatantly in front of their faces, which is certainly chemistry from the leads.
It irritates me that people have to be so petty. There is absolutely and categorically much worse to choose from. Why not nominate those who actually deserve it?
RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Our Worst Screen Couple category is not entirely about on-screen chemistry -- It's also about the performances of the actors named, and how they play off of one another. Since the above poster seems to be a "Twi-Hard," I don't expect him/her to agree, but I found myself repeatedly laughing out loud (along with several other movie patrons) at the over-wrought facial expressions and vocal inflections of all three lead actors in TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART I...
Ugh, I hated New Moon. Don't even get me started. Such a snoozfest, Weitz completely messed up that one, and The Golden Compass. But I have to admit, A Better Life is a good movie.
There is plenty of stuff I hate about Breaking Dawn, the story more than anything. Makes me feel like that is what the authors thoughts spin around all the time. But at first Edward and Bella seem to be happy, and then there is an invisible barricade between them. Chemistry gone out the window, or at least turned into negative/worried chemistry, which was apparent on screen. I need to stop now, talking about that is no fun. But even if the story is sh*t and the characters look ridiculous and are obnoxious, the chemistry/authenticy of the main couple isn't an issue in these movies.
If you think about it, if there were an Oscar for Best Chemistry, Stewart & Pattinson wouldn't win it this year:
1)In TWILIGHT, yes, because it was a straight Romantic Movie.
2)In NEW MOON, no, because they spent most of the movie apart. It deserved the nomination for Worst Couple but just for her and JACOB, because they had 0 chemistry (although that was on purpose... I think).
3)In ECLIPSE, maybe, because it's focused equally on the rivals, and she starts realizing her feelings for JACOB.
4)In BREAKING DAWN PART 1, no, because their love is the focus for only the first half of the movie.
The general perception is "The chemistry between Pattinson and Stewart is as solid as ever" -- and that's coming from a negative review (LINK). Almost none (or only very few bad reviews) say differently.
It doesn't matter if the characters look like complete idiots or the people lack acting ability as long as they seem authentic with each other. Kristen Stewart gets on my nerves permanently, and still critics or even I are able to see, they don't need to try to have chemistry, it's simply there. Unlike many others.
And a flat performance doesn't neccessarely influence natural chemistry, as the first Twilight film shows. An actor can give a good performance and have lots of chemistry (Notebook), or give a good performance, and not have the right chemistry (Water for Elephants). I have to admit though, in Eclipse the interactions between the couple were too serious for my taste. I don't know if you read my earlier post, but I don't get what she see's in the vamp anyway. The whole story is just silly. But I'm glad at least in that respect for the first half Breaking Dawn was a little lighter again.
A better example for having no chemistry whatsoever would be most couples from New Year's Eve. They are acting alongside each other, but not with each other.
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.
