In an unbelievable feat of suck, Adam Sandler has swept the annual Razzies awards, which showcase the worst films of the previous year. Sandler’s Jack and Jill has accomplished something no film was able to in the Razzies 32 year history, winning all 10 categories. That includes both a worst actor and actress for win for the titular characters played by Sandler, which is also a Razzie first as it is not often those two categories would overlap.
Sandler wasn’t “honored” alone, as many of his supporting cast in the film went on to win as well. David Spade, Katie Holmes, and Al Pacino all received awards for the part they played in the travesty that is known as Jack and Jill.
The creative team behind the film weren’t free of the crap storm either, with director Dennis Dugan and the screenwriters all taking home awards in their respective categories.
Another thing that makes this “win” so monumental is that for the first time it was not just the 657 Voting Members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation who deemed Sandler the year’s worst. This year the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation opened up voting for Worst Screen Couple to the general public. Even if the Razzie team were prejudice against Jack and Jill, it doesn’t account for the hatred by the general public. With 35,117 votes were cast, Jack and Jill just barely beat out the cast of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.
Sandler may take these wins, along with the nominations of two other Happy Madison produced films, and decide it’s time to stop churning out garbage. Unfortunately, it is more likely he will keep making movies like this, stupid people will spend money to see them and Sandler will swim in a vault of money like Scrooge McDuck.
