Adam Sandler Lands a Record 11 Razzie Nominations for JACK & JILL, JUST GO WITH IT, and BUCKY LARSON

     February 26, 2012

Critically speaking, 2011 may have been Adam Sandler‘s worst year ever.  His two main vehicles, Just Go With It and Jack & Jill, were panned.  As a producer, his name is also on Zookeeper and (most damningly) Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.  The Razzies recognized his efforts with a record 11 nominations.  For those keeping track, this shatters the record set by Eddie Murphy and his 5 nominations for Norbit in 2007.  New Year’s Eve, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 join Jack & Jill and Bucky Larson as the 5 contenders for Worst Picture.  Hit the jump for the full list.

I don’t really like the spirit behind the Razzies, but I will admit that a pair of nominations in the Worst Actress category made me chuckle: Adam Sandler (as “Jill”) in Jack & Jill and Sarah Palin (as “Herself”) in Sarah Palin: The Undefeated.
