LOS ANGELES – The action fantasy “The Last Airbender” – about people who can command fire, air, water and earth – now controls something else: the Razzie awards for Hollywood’s worst film achievements of 2010.

“The Last Airbender” led Saturday’s Razzies with five awards, among them worst picture, worst director and worst screenplay for M. Night Shyamalan.

The movie also received Razzies for worst supporting actor (Jackson Rathbone, who was cited for both “The Last Airbender” and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) and for a special award, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.

A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies were announced the night before the Oscars, Hollywood’s biggest party.

“Sex and the City 2” took three Razzies, including worst actress, a prize shared by co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, worst screen couple or ensemble for its entire cast, and worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.

Ashton Kutcher was picked as worst actor for “Killers” and “Valentine’s Day,” while Jessica Alba took the Razzie as worst supporting actress for four 2010 releases, “The Killer Inside Me,” “Little Fockers,” “Machete” and “Valentine’s Day.”
