Adam Sandler's 'That's My Boy' Receives 8 Razzie Nominations, Fewer than 'Jack and Jill'

Nominations for the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards, which honor the worst in film, were just announced, and the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg vehicle That's My Boy received a whopping eight nominations. That's a lot, but it falls short of 12 nominations for Sandler's Jack and Jill last year. That's My Boy was nominated in just about every category, including Worst Picture, Worst Screen Ensemble, and Worst Actor (Adam Sandler), joining Battleship, Oogieloves, and the latest Twilight installment as one of 2012's most-nominated movies, Razzie-wise. That's My Boy had more nominations than any other comedy this year, beating out Madea's Witness Protection (4), A Thousand Words (3), What to Expect When You're Expecting (2), [...]

Jack and Jill Is On Track to Break the All Time Razzie Record

Exciting news for lovers of unlovably bad things: Jack and Jill has a legitimate shot at breaking the all-time record for most Razzie awards. That title is currently held by I Know Who Killed Me, for which Lindsay Lohan impressively tied herself for Worst Actress in 2007. But if Adam Sandler wins Worst Actor for his portrayal of Jack and Worst Actress for Jill, this could be the year things change! History is in the making!

Adam Sandler and Jack and Jill Sweep the Razzies

While Jack and Jill was inexcusably snubbed by both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, one awards show had the balls to shower Adam Sandler with the statuettes he so obvious deserves: the Razzies. Sure, Jack and Jill's clean sweep, in which it picked up such coveted awards as Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress (for Sandler as Jill, naturally), Worst Screenplay and Worst Ensemble, probably wasn't as fulfilling as Oscar sweeps by people like James Cameron and Peter Jackson, but you've gotta take what you can get.

Bucky Larson Generating Serious Razzie Buzz

Though the Razzie Awards are still months away, it seems critics are already heralding Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star as a near-lock for this year's Worst Picture honor. Man, awards shows really do just eat it up when stars alter their appearance for a role. And please, those actors, always taking projects totally devoid of any artistic integrity just for the Razzie cred. Pathetic. If Bucky Larson does bring home the big prize for horribleness, don't forget that you heard all about it here first, down to the last weak sputter of ejaculate.

Adam Sandler Gets All the Razzie Nominations

Adam Sandler RazzieWatch 2012 is ongoing. The Sandman has received a record-breaking 11 Razzie nominations, including both Worst Actor (as Jack in Jack and Jill) and Worst Actress (as Jill). It looks like he's got a lock on being declared officially the worst come April 1, but I hope those brave souls making the decisions remember to save some Razzies for Candy Land next year. Let's not be shortsighted here.
