Adam Sandler earns record-setting 11 nominations for annual Razzie Awards

It seemed a bit ironic that Adam Sandler appeared in so many of the short video presentations during last night’s Academy Awards as not a single one of his films was up for an award this year. In fact, not only were they not up for an award, they were busy setting the record for highest number of Razzie nominations for a single actor. Maybe that’s just the type of stuff the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences thinks appeals to the masses?

Whatever the reason for his big presence at the Oscars, Sandler had nothing to be proud of this weekend. His films earned a record-breaking 11 nominations at the Razzies, more than doubling the number of nods for the last title-holder (Eddie Murphy scored five nominations in 2007 for his work in “Norbit”). In addition, his film “Jack & Jill” went on to receive 12 nods at the Razzies, an impressive achievement for both the film and for Sandler as there are only 10 categories to be nominated in.

Maybe this is a sign actors should stop trying to play multiple roles in comedies? Let’s face it, it hasn’t worked since “The Nutty Professor,” and that was over a decade ago. Sandler was also up for awards thanks to his work in “Just Go With It” and for producing “Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star,” but it was “Jack & Jill” that earned him top honors.

But he wasn’t the only one to be lambasted at this year’s Razzies, which will be held April 1st (natch). “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” earned eight nominations and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” landed seven. Still, we’d be surprised if any film but “Jack & Jill” took home the prizes they’re nominated for. This could be the first year a movie sweeps every award at the Razzies. Maybe that will be a nice wake-up call for Sandler.

The real question, though, is whether or not Sarah Palin will show up to the ceremony to represent her nomination for “Sarah Palin: The Undefeated”? Fingers crossed!

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
