It’s safe to say that this year’s Razzie voters are not Adam Sandler fans. The actor already broke Eddie Murphy’s record for having the most nominations in a year, and now he’s gone one better (worse?) by sweeping the board and receiving a record 10 gongs for filmic awfulness.
Admittedly not every single award went to him personally, but it does mean Jack & Jill, which Sandler both produced and starred in, is the first film in the 32-year history of the Razzies to sweep all 10 dishonourable categories. Sandler won for both Worst Actor and Worst Actress, an impressive feat in itself, while co-stars Al Pacino and David Spade also picked up gongs in the worst supporting actor and actress categories.
It’s actually a pretty impressive achievement and Sandler ought to be oddly proud, while feeling extremely ashamed at the same time!
While the Razzies are normally given out the day before the Oscars, this year it was changed to nominations were announced as Oscar time, with the winners announced on April Fools Day. Voting was also expanded from just Golden Raspberry members to the users of the Rotten Tomatoes websites, so it really was a popular vote deciding Sandler’s film was the absolute worst!
