The final Twilight film has swept the board at Hollywood's Razzie awards for the year's worst films.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was given seven Golden Raspberry titles including worst picture and worst actress for Kristen Stewart.

Stewart was not present at the spoof award ceremony. A cardboard cut-out of the actress was brought in to "accept" her trophy.

The five Twilight films are among the most successful of all time bringing in nearly 2bn at the box office.

Razzies founder John Wilson said the worst thing about the franchise was that "people take it so seriously".

"I believe that rather than 40 million girls who bought tickets, it was four million girls who bought 10 tickets each," he added.

The film also "won" the worst director prize for Bill Condon, worst supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, worst re-make, rip-off or sequel, worst screen ensemble and worst screen couple for Lautner and Mackenzie Foy.

Stewart owes her worst actress prize to her performances in two films - Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman.

Rihanna was named worst supporting actress for her debut film role in Battleship, based on the board game of the same name.

The Razzies are described by the organisers as "saluting the worst that Hollywood has to offer each year". The prize for each category is a gold-coloured raspberry trophy.
