Adam Sandler could take both Worst Actor and Worst Actress for his dual roles as brother and sister in “Jack and Jill.” He has already been nominated for Worst Actor six times before, winning for 1999’s “Big Daddy.” This year, he is nominated 11 times, more than any individual in Razzie history.
Taylor Lautner got his first Razzie nomination last year for his work on “Eclipse” and “Valentine’s Day.” He returns with another awful “Twilight” sequel this year and “Abduction,” an action movie he headlined that ended up flopping.
A terrible haircut and annoying voice doomed Adam Sandler when he was nominated for Worst Actor for “Little Nicky” in 2000. Nick Swardson seems to be channeling him in “Bucky Larson,” which Sandler co-wrote. Portraying a character this unlikable and obnoxious in an unfunny sex comedy could put Swardson over the top in the Worst Actor race.
There is no denying Nicolas Cage has fallen on hard times. He is in a trio of terrible movies this year: “Drive Angry,” “Season of the Witch,” and “Trespass.” Razzie voters cited him for three bad movies in 2007 and for “The Wicker Man” in 2006. He is quickly becoming a Razzie darling.
Back in 1981, the role of “Arthur” got Dudley Moore an Oscar nomination. What a difference 30 years can make. Russell Brand received some of the worst reviews of his short career for the same part in a lame remake.
