Adam Sandler and Jack and Jill Sweep Razzies

Adam Sandler and Jack and Jill made history Sunday night, walking away with 10 Razzies and sweeping every single category in the process. Jack and Jill is the only movie in the 32-year history of the Razzies to win every award.

The actor (and I use that term loosely) won not only for worst leading man but actress as well for his roles as Jack and Jill Sadelstein. In case you need proof that kids have absolutely no taste when it comes to movies, Sandler won for Best Actor in Jack and Jill at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday night.

“Adam Sandler has a pretty much basic attitude of, ‘No matter how dumb I make it, my fans are going to pay to see it,’” Razzies founder John Wilson said. “I guess it’s more about the complete lack of any genuine effort or concern or pride. An attitude of this is good enough, but when you consider what they’re charging for movie tickets today, it wasn’t good enough.”

Adam Sandler is Really, Really Bad at Acting

Adam Sandler‘s acting career has reached a new low.

The 2012 Razzie nominations were released on the eve of the Academy Awards, and Sandler led the way with a record 11 nods scattered over three films — Jack and Jill, Just Go with It and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.

(OK, how many of you have seen one of these three movies? We won’t judge.)

Sandler shattered Eddie Murphy‘s previous record of five nominations in 2007 for Norbit. And in a unique twist, Sandler was nominated for worst actor and worst actress for playing Jack and Jill Sadelstein.

“It’s almost karmic for someone to have made that much razz-able stuff in one year,” Razzies founder John Wilson told the Associated Press. “He has angered someone really powerful, I would say.”
