Sandler Makes Razzie History

Something to celebrate? Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler in Jack and Jill
Adam Sandler is redeemed! The actor has finally gotten the recognition he deserves. Sandler's Jack and Jill made history at the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards. The awards, a.k.a. The Razzies, honour the 'berry worst' in film, and usually serve as a lampoonish prelude on the eve of the Academy Awards; however, the Razzies decided to move their 'honours' to April Fool's Day this year, and the switch was a perfect day for a landmark Razzie event. Jack and Jill  became the first film in Razzie history to sweep all ten categories, including Worst Picture and Worst Director. To add insult to injury, Sandler hit a double-whammy, winning both Worst Actor and Worst Actress for his performances as Jack and Jill, respectively. (It's a feat only surpassed by Eddie Murphy, who won Worst Actor, Worst Support Actor, and Worst Supporting Actress for Norbit in 2007). Oscar-winning nominees Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to Sandler's blunder, although two-time Oscar winner Al Pacino fared less well, winning Worst Supporting Actor for Jack and Jill. (He was previously nominated for the Bennfier bomb Gigli.) Jack and Jill was nominated for 12 Razzies, but nominees Nicky Swardson and Katie Holmes got off the hook by seeing their co-stars take one for the team.

Congratulations to all!
