AND THE “WINNER” IS… ADAM SANDLER!

The 32nd Golden Raspberry Awards or Razzies was a parodic award ceremony that was held on April 1, 2012 to honor the worst films of 2011. The nominations were announced on February 25, 2012. Taking a break from Razzie tradition of announcing both the nominees and winners before the Academy Awards functions by one day, it was decided in January of 2012 to delay both the Razzie nomination announcements and ceremony by several weeks in order for the actual Razzie ceremony to be held on April Fool’s Day. The actual nominations however, still had some connection to the Oscars ceremony, as they were announced the night before the Academy Awards were held.
Adam Sandler received a Razzie record 6 nominations as an individual and a total of 14 nominations for films he was involved with. “Jack and Jill” was nominated for twelve awards and won in every category, earning it the record for most Razzie wins (beating “Battlefield Earth”) and most wins in a single year (beating “I Know Who Killed Me”).
Note: Voting for Worst Screen Couple was not just determined by members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. Voting for the award was opened up to the general public online and conducted by the website Rotten Tomatoes. A grand total of 35,117 votes were cast. More: http://www.razzies.com

  1. I couldn’t even imagine watching this movie. And why oh why was Deniro in it? How far he has fallen.

      Well, end of career has things like that… I saw “Just Go with it” and Nicole Kidman was there… It makes me think how those people could gain an Oscar…
