Adam Sandler Makes Razzie History With Eleven Nominations

Jill and Jack (both, Adam Sandler) in Columbia Pictures' JACK AND JILL. Jill and Jack (both, Adam Sandler).

Five years ago, Eddie Murphy clinched a record five Razzie nominations for his cross-dressing, fatsuit-crazy Norbit, but Adam Sandler just supplanted him as the king of (purposefully) bad cinema. Particularly razz-able was Sandler's own cross-dressing, er, comedy, Jack and Jill. In all, he received a historic eleven personal nominations with three films in the running, including Bucky Larson and rom-com Just Go With It.  Below, a list of every Sandler-related mention we could find in the official rundown.

Worst Actor: Just Go With It, Jack and Jill (for the part of Jack)
Worst Actress: Jack and Jill (for the part of Jill)
Worst Screen Couple: Just Go With It (opposite Jennifer Aniston), Jack and Jill (opposite Katie Holmes, as Jack, and opposite Al Pacino, as Jill)
Worst Picture: Bucky Larson, Jack and Jill
Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel: Bucky Larson, Jack and Jill
Worst Director: Bucky Larson, Jack and Jill
Worst Screen Ensemble: Bucky Larson, Jack and Jill

Other notables: Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart for Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (which will have quite a few Twihards seeing red) and Sarah Palin for her self-hagiographic documentary Undefeated.
