M Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender took top dishonours at the Razzies, taking away five Golden Raspberry Awards.

The Razzies are famous for Hollywood's Oscar spoof mocking the year's worst performances.

The fantasy action film about people who can control fire, air, water and earth stole the show, despite making 320m dollars at global box offices reports the BBC.

Shyamalan who won an Oscar nomination in 1999 for The Sixth Sense -- adapted the film from the animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

"He managed to take a cartoon property and make it even less lifelike by making it with real actors," said Razzies founder John Wilson.

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

Troubled actor Charlie Sheen is reportedly hunting for a 10-million-dollar deal to release his memoirs.

He reportedly told gossip TMZ that he wants to lift the lid on his eight years on his hit TV show Two and a Half Men in an explosive book -- titled 'When The Laughter Stopped'.

He will reportedly reveal all about behind-the-scenes events -- and wants negotiations with publishers to start at 10 million dollars, reports the New York Post.

CBS and Warner Bros cancelled the rest of this season's production Thursday after the actor publicly criticized its creator, Chuck Lorre.

Sheen is still contracted to CBS for next year, reportedly for 1.2 million dollars per episode of the sitcom.
