Razzie Awards Once Again Remind Us What Adam Sandler Made Last Year


The Razzie nominations have been announced, and with Eddie Murphy proving himself graciously infertile through 2013, it's shaping up to once again be a big awards year for Adam Sandler. He and those connected to him by proxy of palling around on Grown Ups 2 managed nods in eight of the nine categories, including Worst Picture and Worst Actor--setting Sandler up for a possible hat trick in the category.

The ignoble fat suit--Sandler's main rival as a portent of Razzie recognition--brought Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas a solid six nominations, matching After Earth. At five nods, the abysmal melange comedy Movie 43 tied with The Lone Ranger, continuing the latter film's impressive run of overblown disparagement. But perhaps most impressively, Lindsay Lohan managed three different nominations for three entirely separate films--scattered freckles of shame cast upon the entirety of her 2013 film catalogue. Meanwhile, the dismally-reviewed Liam Hemsworth vehicle Paranoia somehow sneaked by as unnoticed by voters as it was by audiences. Because who really wants to call out Gary Oldman?
