Well, that’s it. Forget the Oscars—which are tonight!—just forget ’em, because we can all go home. Adam Sandler is already slated to clean up at this year’s Razzies. And as we all know, the Razzie is the only trophy that matters.

Sandler swept with a record-shattering 11 nominations. Deadline has the full press announcement:

Sandler has more than doubled Eddie Murphy‘s old record for the most nominations accrued by an individual in a single year. As an actor, writer and/or producer on Jack & Jill, Bucky Larson and Just Go With It, the former SNL star has amassed a whopping 11 RAZZIE nods, dis-honoring last year’s Worst Achievements in Film.

Leading the pack for Worst Picture is Sandler’s cross-dressing comedy Jack & Jill, which received 12 nods in all (becoming only the 4th film in the Tacky Trophy’s history ever to get more dings than the awards have categories).

Besides having the inside track to “win” the top award, Jill is also contending for Sandler as Worst Actor (as male twin Jack). […]

Sandler is also nominated for Worst Actress for playing the role of Jill and, should he “win” and follow in the footsteps of previous “winners” Halle Berry (Catwoman) and Sandra Bullock (All About Steve), Sandler could potentially become the first “winner” who literally has the balls to accept a Worst Actress RAZZIE.

Yeesh.

Russell Brand also scooped up a nomination for his work in Arthur, which I thought was a perfectly likable movie, and James Franco was nominated for his “work” in Your Highness.

And Ken Jeong—whom I adore—was nominated for FOUR (!) movies, including Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. Frown.

The full list of this year’s nominees—just in case you were wondering about them, I mean—after the jump. (How borked is Hollywood? Here’s how borked: a bunch of the “worst actress” nominees are men. Stop taking our (bad) roles, dudes!)
