The popular vampire sequel is on the shortlist for Worst Picture, while Kristen Stewart is up for the Worst Actress trophy and the film's lead male stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are set to battle it out for Worst Actor.

Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper in the blood-sucking series, picked up two nominations for Worst Supporting Actor - one for his role in the latest Twilight project and another for his part in The Last Airbender, which also picked up a total of nine nominations.

The film, starring Dev Patel, landed on the shortlist for awards including Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actor (Patel) and Worst Supporting Actress (Nicola Peltz).

The other Worst Picture contenders are The Bounty Hunter, Sex and the City 2 and Twilight spoof Vampires Suck.

Joining Stewart in the Worst Actress category are Jennifer Aniston (The Bounty Hunter), Miley Cyrus (The Last Song) and Megan Fox (Jonah Hex), while Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon received a shared nomination for their roles in the second Sex and the City sequel.

Other contenders for this year's (11) Worst Actor title include Jack Black (Gulliver's Travels), Gerard Butler (The Bounty Hunter) and Ashton Kutcher, who is nominated twice for his parts in Valentine's Day and Killers.

The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony in Los Angeles on 26 February (11) - a day before the Academy Awards take place.

Last year (10), Sandra Bullock attended the event to pick up the Worst Actress trophy for All About Steve - a day before she won an Oscar for her part in The Blind Side.
