Adam Sandler wasn't nominated for any Oscars, but he racked up a record number of nominations for the weekend's more dubious honor: the Razzie Awards for the worst in film! The comedian was nominated for 11 Razzies, the most nominations ever by one person in a single year. (The old record was held by Eddie Murphy, who received five nominations in 2007 for Norbit.)
So how did Sandler manage to get so many "worsts" in one year? Chalk it up to productivity: In 2011, he produced and co-wrote Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, produced and starred in Just Go with It, and produced, starred in and co-wrote Jack & Jill. Though two of his movies were hits, all three bombed with critics, so it's not exactly a surprise to see them on the Razzies list. Among Sandler's nominations: worst actor, worst actress (for playing his own sister in Jack & Jill), worst picture and worst screenplay for Bucky Larson and Jack & Jill, worst ensemble for Jack & Jill, and worst screen couple for Just Go with It (along with costars Jennifer Aniston and Brooklyn Decker) and Jack & Jill (with Katie Holmes and Al Pacino).
Some of this year's other notable Razzie nominees include Sarah Jessica Parker (for I Don't Know How She Does It and New Year's Eve), Russell Brand (for Arthur), James Franco (for Your Highness) and Nicole Kidman (for Just Go with It). As usual, the Razzie nominating committee showed no love for Twilight, nominating Breaking Dawn - Part 1 for eight awards, including worst picture. A full list of nominees can be seen here.
The Razzies, or Golden Raspberry Awards, began in 1980 as a sort of tongue-in-cheek anti-Oscars. Only a handful of winners have actually accepted their Razzie Awards. Those who showed off their sense of humor at the ceremony include Halle Berry, who accepted her 2004 worst actress Razzie for Catwoman, and Sandra Bullock, who accepted her 2010 worst actress award for All About Steve -- the night before she won an Oscar for The Blind Side. This year's winners will be announced during an April Fool's Day ceremony.
