The 32nd Annual Razzie Award Nominations

As per their special 2012 schedule, the RAZZIE nominations were announced on Saturday. It was no great surprise that Adam Sandler led the nominations, but what did come as a bit of a shock was just how many nominations he earned.

Little Billy Madison churned out an unprecedented amount of cinematic garbage this year and all his hard work didn’t go unnoticed. His contributions to ‘Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star’, ‘Jack & Jill’ and ‘Just Go With It’ earned him an outstanding 11 nominations!!

This record-breaking achievement crowns Sandler with the title of the most RAZZIE nominations in a single year. Thanks in part to Sandler’s annoying, unfunny and unconvincing role as his twin sister, he was able to more than double the five nominations that earned Eddie Murphy the title back in 2007.

That note-worthy haul gets even more impressive when you take into account that the RAZZIE’s only have TEN categories! We think it will be quite a while before anyone is able to outshine Adam Sandler and his truly embarrassing 2011 offerings.

  1. Hahaha!!! I luckily have not seen any of these movies except Transformers and Twilight. I do think that Real Steel should have been nominated for something…screenwriting maybe. When I was watching it, I actually walked out of the room, came back, tried again, then walked out again. This happened a third time before I finally walked out for good. Just terrible.
