Time to hang up the Manolos? Sex and the City 2 stars named worst actresses at Razzie Awards


They'll be crying into their cosmopolitans: Sex and the City 2's cast were named the worst actresses at this year's Razzie Awards

It is the one Hollywood awards ceremony where no celebrity wants to win.

But this year the cast of Sex and the City 2 were among those who were called out at the 31st Annual Golden Raspberry Awards at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in LA.

The satirical ceremony, traditionally held the night before the Academy Awards, honour the year's worst films and actors.

Sex and the City 2 opened last year to lacklustre ticket sales and even worse reviews.

And all four of its stars - Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon - collectively took the worst actress category during event tonight.

The film, which saw the New York ladies head to Abu Dhabi for a girls' holiday, was also named worst sequel and took out the worst screen ensemble gong.

'It was released in the middle of a period of American history when everyone's scrounging not to lose their homes,' Razzies founder John Wilson said.

'And these women are riding around in Rolls-Royces, buying expensive shoes and just throwing money around like they're drunk.'

Parker said this month that she is open to the possibility of Sex and the City 3, telling the LA Times: 'I would go back. I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is.'

No love here: Valentine's Day stars Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba were named worst supporting actor and actress

Ashton Kutcher was picked as worst actor for Killers and Valentine's Day, while Jessica Alba took worst supporting actress for four of her films - The Killer Inside Me, Little Fockers, Machete and Valentine's Day.

M. Night Shyamalan's critically panned 3-D fantasy film, The Last Airbender, led the Razzies with five awards.

It won worst picture, worst director and worst screenplay while Jackson Rathbone was named worst supporting actor for both The Last Airbender and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Sweeping the board: M. Night Shyamalan's critically panned 3-D fantasy film, The Last Airbender, led the Razzies with five awards

The Last Airbender, which still managed to make $300 million worldwide, also won for the worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.

Shyamalan, who was widely praised for the The Sixth Sense in 1999, also won Razzies in 2006 for Lady in the Water.

'He managed to take a cartoon property and make it even less lifelike by making it with real actors,' Wilson said of The Last Airbender, which was adapted from an animated TV series.

'Most people who like the show, and this would include my 14-year-old son, hated the movie. It made no sense whatsoever.'
