Although the majority of the film world spent last night celebrating the very best of cinematic talent and achievements, it was also a time for the Golden Raspberry Awards (or ’Razzies’) to draw our attention to what have surely been some of the worst films of the year. Previously, the Razzies have been dished out the night before the Oscars, but this time around the ceremony has been (rather suitably) shifted to April 1st, and it was the nominations which instead coincided with last night’s Academy Awards event.

Most notably, Adam Sandler has broken the Razzie record set by Eddie Murphy back in 2007 by being up for a total of 11 awards, most of which are courtesy of his latest comedy caper, Jack & Jill. Murphy’s critically panned film, Norbit, was only nominated for a total of five Razzie awards. However, with Jack & Jill giving Sandler the opportunity to play both an advertising executive and his ‘identical’ twin sister, he has found himself up for both Worst Actor and Worst Actress, as well as a variety of other awards. However, the comic actor is no stranger to recognition from the Razzies, with a number of his previous films including Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy, Little Nicky and Mr Deeds all having been nominated for Golden Raspberries in the past.

Other men up for Actress awards include David Spade, who also plays a woman in Jack & Jill, as well as Brandon T Jackson and Martin Lawrence, who both appear as women in Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.

Also featuring heavily in this year’s Razzies is the latest in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part 1, which has a total of eight nominations, closely followed by Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is currently up for seven Golden Raspberry Awards.
