Adam Sandler Wins Worst Actor AND Worst Actress at the 2012 Razzie Awards

The small committee behind the annual Golden Raspberry Awards want to make sure that everybody understands how bad Jack & Jill actually is. Adam Sandler’s film about a reunited brother and sister, both played by Sandler, received an unprecedented 11 wins at the 32nd Annual Razzie Awards.

Not only did Jack & Jill sweep every category from Worst Picture to Worst Ensemble Cast, it also managed to win multiple awards in a single category. The award voters could not decide whether David Spade in drag or Katie Holmes was more appalling, so they awarded them both the Worst Supporting Actress award.

Al Pacino can now put a Razzie statuette next to his Oscar on his mantle and longtime Sandler director Dennis Dugan takes his first Razzie home after four nominations (two this year).

This is not likely to dissuade Adam Sandler from making awful comedies, nor is it likely to get people to stop paying to see them. In 2007, Norbit nearly swept these awards, yet Eddie Murphy continues to get paychecks. Maybe Paul Thomas Anderson can save Sandler with a follow-up to Punch Drunk Love?

    Yeah, Jack and Jill was terrible, but I thought Bucky Larson was worse. It’s actually currently the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. It took the spot from Disaster Movie so that proves how bad I thought it was.

  • I always feel that if a movie wins Worst Picture at Razzie, they just love to award it in other categories too and same is the case with the nominees. there were far more worst performances but no …

    Still i am glad i just saw 1 movie from the 5 nominated ones and that was Transformers …

  • Calvin

    Can we please give Adam Sandler a “Worst Actor. Period.” award?

  • Marki

    I think he was ok in some of his movies :)

  • Searching for this for some time now – i guess luck is far more advanced than search engines :)
