T ATTLE'S FAVORITE AWARDS SHOW has announced its nominations, and we'd like to congratulate "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" for dominating the 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards (a/k/a the "Razzies"), celebrating "the worst accomplishments in film."

"TS: BD2" received 11 nominations - not bad, considering there are only 10 categories - including worst picture, worst actor ( Robert Pattinson), worst actress ( Kristen Stewart - also feted for "Snow White and the Huntsman"), worst supporting actress ( Ashley Greene), worst supporting actor ( Taylor Lautner) and worst director ( Bill Condon).

The hugely popular climax to the "Twilight" series was also nominated in the categories of worst ensemble cast, worst screenplay, worst screen couple and worst remake, rip-off or sequel.

But it's not going to be a cakewalk to horribleness for the "Twilight Saga." The film will have serious competition in the worst-picture category from "Battleship," "Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure," "That's My Boy!" and "A Thousand Words."

Pattinson will do battle against Nicolas Cage ("Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" and "Seeking Justice"), Eddie Murphy ("A Thousand Words"), Tyler Perry ("Alex Cross" and "Tyler Perry's Good Deeds") and Adam Sandler ("That's My Boy!").

Stewart will fight to the death with Katherine Heigl ("One for the Money"), Milla Jovovich ("Resident Evil: Retribution"), Tyler Perry as Madea ("Madea's Witness Protection") and Barbra Streisand ("The Guilt Trip").

Trying to snare the prize from Ashley Greene will be Jessica Biel ("Playing for Keeps" and "Total Recall"), Brooklyn Decker ("Battleship" and "What to Expect When You're Expecting"), Jennifer Lopez ("What to Expect When You're Expecting") and Rihanna ("Battleship").

Team Jacob will be pulling for Lautner over David Hasselhoff as himself ("Piranha 3DD"), Liam Neeson ("Battleship" and "Wrath of the Titans"), Nick Swardson ("That's My Boy!") and Vanilla Ice as himself ("That's My Boy!").

Besides Condon, worst-director nominees are Sean Anders ("That's My Boy!"), Peter Berg ("Battleship"), Tyler Perry ("Tyler Perry's Good Deeds" and "Madea's Witness Protection") and John Putch for "Atlas Shrugged Part II: The Strike."

The Razzies will be handed out Feb. 23.

* ABC's " Jimmy Kimmel Live" went head-to-head Tuesday for the first time against CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" and NBC's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." According to Nielsen national ratings, Kimmel edged out Letterman and ran slightly behind Leno in total viewers.

Tuesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" was seen by roughly 3 million viewers, only 177,000 fewer than the audience for the "Tonight Show." It beat "Late Show" by 115,000 viewers.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" scored its second-largest audience ever while exceeding the average audience in its previous berth by 59 percent.

* A northern California city has

approved a downtown park to be built on land donated by George Lucas that will feature a statue of Indiana Jones and a Yoda Fountain, based on two of the director's most popular characters.

The Marin Independent Journal reports that the San Anselmo Planning Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve the park, which could be completed as soon as June 1.

* Miss Oklahoma and Miss

South Carolina have racked up prizes in the first day of preliminary Miss America competition in Las Vegas.

Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton's tap-dance performance to "Money Can't Buy Me Love" earned her top honors Tuesday night at Las Vegas's Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers took the trophy for the first round of the Lifestyle and Fitness category after modeling a white Catalina swimsuit.

But Miss Alabama stole Brent

Musburger's heart.

Kim Kardashian says that her

baby will NOT be on TV and that no one but family and close friends will see the baby for at least six months.

How about six decades?

* A few overly sensitive

Christians are claiming that CBS is promoting a pro-gay, anti-Christian agenda with an ad for the Super Bowl featuring Neil Patrick Harris.

In the spot, Harris has two black patches under his eyes ( a la Tim Tebow) with the date of the Feb. 3 game.

That's it.

But according to the popular- culture analysts at wnd.com, the agenda is pro-gay because Harris is gay, and it's anti-Christian, because it's mocking Tebow - even though it's not mocking Tebow - as if Tebow is the first football player to ever put black under his eyes.When halftime performer Beyonce dons the eye black in her promos, is she promoting a pro-woman "Single Ladies" agenda?

Tattle will tell you what's really going on here with the Harris ad: CBS is promoting a "How I Met Your Mother" agenda.
