Sandler Sets New Nominations Record For Most Razzies

Last night was 84th annual Academy Awards, and what a night it was. But if you, dear reader, think the success of THE ARTIST and Meryl Streep will be the big stories of the day, I have two words for you:

Adam.

Sandler.

Yes, the thinking man’s Rob Schneider has FINALLY been nominated for multiple awards. But, like a twist so painfully unfunny, it could well be used as the disequilibrium in one of his own movies… It’s the Razzies. Oh my, yes. The Anti-Oscars revealed their shortlist for the year’s most unwanted honours. And Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore/Zohan/Chuck/Jack/Jill/ himself has been nominated a record breaking 11 times, smashing the previous record set by Eddie Murphy in 2007 for NORBIT.

That’s not the only bad news for Sandler, as his favourite director Dennis Dugan has also been nom’d for JACK & JILL. This is the man behind most the poor actor’s pics, including JUST GO WITH IT (Sandler’s other stinker from last year that has also been shortlisted), GROWN UPS, YOU DON’T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN, HAPPY GILMORE, BIG DADDY etc etc.

But fear not, Sandler fans, or Fandlers. Because next June see’s the release of THAT’S MY BOY, his next starring vehicle from the director ofSEX DRIVE. Will he smash his own record at next year’s Razzies? Only time will tell.
