Who's misérable now?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Adam Sandler and Rihanna are among the "winners" of the 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards – the Razzies – which are not so much handed out as they are thrown at those who are voted as perpetrating Hollywood's worst achievements of the year.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2, the fifth and final installment in Stephenie Meyer's vampire saga, was recognized in seven categories, including worst picture.

The flick's Kristen Stewart was also cited as worst actress; Taylor Lautner, worst supporting actor; Lautner and 12-year-old Mackenzie Foy, worst screen couple; the entire cast, including Robert Pattinson, worst screen ensemble, and Bill Condon, worst director.

In addition, the film, which since opening last November has taken in more than $828 million at the box office, was named worst sequel.

Anne Hathaway on Winning An Oscar: Whatever Happens, Happens

Originally posted 02/11/2013 07:00AM

She's won big at the Golden Globes and now the BAFTAs, but will Anne Hathaway take home an Oscar?

Hathaway – who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Misérables – isn't spending too much time worrying about it.

"Whatever happens in two weeks, happens. It won't be the worst thing that happens to me if I don't win, and with my husband by my side it won't be the best thing either. So I am feeling very good about whatever," the actress, 30, told reporters backstage after nabbing a best supporting actress statue at Sunday's British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards in London.

Oscar, who?

Ben Affleck took home the top prize Saturday night at the 65th Annual Directors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, where he once again reigned supreme following a snub from the Academy Awards.

It was a celebratory evening for Affleck – and it was also date night with his doting wife, Jennifer Garner, by his side (and often with her hand on his back).

Taylor Swift Gets Kanye'd at People's Choice Awards

It was a familiar feeling for Taylor Swift Wednesday night – and no, not just because she was on stage receiving an award.

Her acceptance of the People's Choice Award for favorite country artist was met with a minor interruption, thanks to presenter Olivia Munn.

More than three years since she was notoriously interrupted by Kanye West at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, perhaps the recently single superstar was just a little more prepared this time around.

The Big Bang Theory star, 27, who will host the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday for the second consecutive year, tells PEOPLE she's "the least prepared person in the world," but it doesn't concern her one bit.

"Even with [Big Bang], too, I never have a script," she explained right before rehearsals for the awards show.

At her latest stop on the awards show circuit, Octavia Spencer found herself in need of a little help.

While posing for pictures at Friday's NAACP Image Awards, Spencer lost her footing and took a spill off the stage.

But the actress, who stunned in a floor-length blue Tadashi Shoji gown, was back on her feet in no time after getting a hand from her The Help cast mates and crew (one of whom appeared to tumble with her).

Despite her fall, the actress walked away from Los Angeles's Shrine Auditorium on top: She took home honors for her supporting role in the period drama, which has been one of the most decorated films of the red carpet season.
