Adam Sandler Sets New Record With 11 Razzie Nominations

Usually, the Golden Raspberry Awards (the anti-Oscars) announce their nominations the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and give out their awards the day before the Oscars.  This year Razzie founder John Wilson decided to do something a little different and announce the nominees the night before the Oscars, with the actual winners being announced on April Fool’s Day,

“I have always wondered if we stepped slightly away from lockstep with the Oscars, what would happen,” Wilson said. “We just kept hoping the Oscars would do their ceremony on April 2, but they just never did.”

This year’s Razzies also set a new record for most nominations, with Adam Sandler collecting 11 nominations as a star, producer, and writer, breaking Eddie Murphy’s record of 5 with his film “Norbert”.  Something also unique this year is the nominations of four men in the Worst Actress/Supporting Actress categories, for either playing women or playing men disguised as women.  Maybe Adam Sandler will be able to take this in stride an actually show up to accept any awards he wins.  In the past, only Tom Green, Halle Berry, and Sandra Bullock have attended to accept their awards, with Bullock being awarded Worst Actress for her role in “All About Steve” the night before winning Best Actress at the Oscars for “The Blind Side”.
