Adam Sandler Nominated for 11 Razzie Awards
The comedian surpasses Eddie Murphy with 11 nods for the awards show, which honors the worst in film
Adam Sandler isn’t up for an Oscar this year, but his work did not go unrecognized.
The comedian, 45, has earned 11 nominations between three movies from the Golden Raspberry Awards – or the Razzies – which honor the worst in film.
But that’s not the worst of it: Sandler’s work – as either actor, writer or producer – on Jack & Jill, Bucky Larson and Just Go With It surpassed Eddie Murphy’s old record of five nods. Sandler’s nominations include worst picture, worst screen couple, worst screenplay, worst rip-off, worst actor, worst actress and worst screen ensemble.
Jack & Jill, which also stars Katie Holmes and Al Pacino, racked up a total of 12 nominations, more than any other movie. (In second place, Transformers: Dark of the Moon pulled in 9 nominations.)
Also getting recognized at the 32nd annual Razzie Awards, which will announce winners April 1, are Kristen Stewart and either Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson, who are nominated in the worst screen couple category.
