Sandler in record Razzies sweep

2 April 2012

Adam Sandler and friends have scored a new high - or low - among voters of the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that presents prizes for the year's worst movies.

Sandler's Jack and Jill managed a Razzies first, claiming 10 awards to sweep every single category. Along with the movie's worst-picture award, Sandler won for both worst actor and actress for his dual roles in the film in which he plays a family man and his own pesky twin sister.

"He didn't play triplets, but he couldn't have won more awards if he had," said Razzies founder John Wilson.

Sandler also shared the Jack and Jill Razzies for worst ensemble, worst screen couple opposite either himself or co-stars Al Pacino or Katie Holmes and worst screenplay as a co-writer on the movie.

Pacino won as worst supporting actor for playing himself in Jack and Jill, while Sandler's pal David Spade was named worst supporting actress for his own cross-dressing role in the movie.

It's the only movie in the 32-year history of the Razzies to win every prize.

But the Razzies did not overlook Sandler's other starring role from last year. Sandler's worst-actor prize came for both Jack and Jill and his earlier comedy Just Go With It. Dennis Dugan, the filmmaker behind both comedies, was named worst director for both flicks.

Jack and Jill was also picked as worst remake, rip-off or sequel, billed by Razzies voters as a remake or rip-off of Ed Wood's cross-dressing cult favorite Glen or Glenda?

The awards were announced at a gag ceremony on Sunday night at a magic shop in Santa Monica, California. Razzie winners usually are announced the night before the Oscars, but organisers this time decided to move out of Hollywood's busy awards season and do their show on April Fool's Day.
