"Jack and Jill" may have gone up the hill to fetch a pail of water, but they've just come down the hill with a record setting 12 nominations from the 32nd Annual Razzie Awards.
Sorry, Adam Sandler. Looks like you just broke your crown.
The Razzies (short for The Golden Raspberry Awards) have been given out every year since 1980 to recognize the absolute worst movies and performances of the year. So just how bad do they think "Jack and Jill" is? Well, consider this: The comedy, which features Sandler playing his own ugly twin sister, managed to earn more nominations (12) than there are categories (ten). Now that's bad.
But that wasn't the only bad news for Sandler. Thanks to the fact that two other films he worked on, "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star" and "Just Go with It," also piled up nominations, Sandler himself ended up with a whopping 11 nods across those ten categories -- including one for Worst Actress.
Other films earning Worst Picture nominations besides "Jack and Jill" and "Bucky Larson" were "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "New Year's Eve" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which is described in the official Razzies press release as the film "in which Sparkly Vampire Edward finally marries – and impregnates – Whiny Goth Girl Bella."
And that should make it no surprise that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" also earned nominations for Worst Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Ensemble, Worst Director (Bill Condon), Worst Screen Couple, Worst Screenplay (Melissa Rosenberg) and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Hey, don't shoot the messenger.
The full list of nominees, which was revealed last night, can be found on the official Razzies website. Appropriately enough, the "winners" will be announced on April Fool's Day.
