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.
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!)

I don’t know if you could tell, but I’ve really hit my stride with these blind items. So far, I’ve uncovered Lea Michele‘s close relationship with cocaine, I’ve revealed to the world that Anne Hathaway‘s boyfriend is worshipping Satan, and I’ve warned you that Chris Kattan is fond of showcasing his junk in gyms. I’ve done a lot of good so far, right? Well, here’s my latest deed, because I’m about to expose a leg humper.
This still barely hanging on to A list comic actor who is supposedly a devoted family man has been accused several times recently on his movies for acting inappropriately with female co-stars. They say that in the guise of being funny he will often rub his peen against women and does this with or without pants and the whole time does it in public and while laughing. He says he is just joking around but it seems to only be done when there are attractive women around and he never does it to a name actress only to those with lesser parts.

You’re not getting any younger, buddy!

Clearly, I love when celebs say stupid things – why else why I be filling in for her majesty, Ms. Evil Beet, this week? Thankfully the gossip gods rewarded me this morning with something fun, right about here.
Let’s break this thing down.
Adam Sandler: Stop Picking on Tom Cruise
Already I’m excited and tingly.
“To see anyone’s private life invaded and mocked like this is sickening,” Adam Sandler tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
Hmm, you know, I almost sort of agree with this statement. However, I’ve got to wonder, why folks aren’t invading Adam’s life? Could it be because he doesn’t go on TV as a mouthpiece for his religion? Just a thought.
Earlier this month, Andrew Morton’s scathing biography of Cruise hit shelves; meanwhile, a pro-Scientology video starring the actor hit the Internet and became the butt of jokes.
Dude, that video is INSANE. It is insane in the membrane. You simply must laugh at that, there is no other rational response. Oh, and someone wrote a book? Okay. These things tend to happen when you pull down $20m a film and run a studio.
Actually, you know what, let’s do a little test here. Ready? Go!
What do you know about Will Smith and/or Tom Hanks? When is the last paparazzi shot you saw of him? How many times has he gone on The Today show saying psychiatrists are the enemy? How many times has he bashed Brooke Shields? If you answered 1) Not much 2) I don’t recall 3) Zero and 4) Never you win! That’s right guys, you can actually be a major star in this universe AND not become the butt of jokes. How do you do it? Maintain some sense of privacy and admit that you may not have the final word on all things spirituality. Sheesh.
The drivel continues:
But many of Cruise’s friends and colleagues are not laughing. Dustin Hoffman, Cruise’s Rain Man co-star, tells PEOPLE: “Tom Cruise is an American and has the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.”
I love that they credit Rain Man which came out around 1975. Nice pull. Also, and I’m going to put this in CAPS because it really is crucial to this discussion:
NO ONE HAS TAKEN AWAY TOM’S RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH OR RELIGION.
I mean really. Dustin, no way are you that stupid. You can’t be. You only fly Quantas airlines. The fact of the matter is we’re all using our freedom of speech to point out that, at this moment, Tom Cruise is one scary dude. But as far as I know nobody has shown up and demanded he put down the Scientology pipe. You have a right to say whatever you like and everyone else has the right to ignore/ridicule you.
“Imagine having a baby and people talking about it the way they did,” says Stiller. “People lose sight of the fact that Tom Cruise is actually a person. I feel for him.”
What do you know about Ben Stiller? Nada? Yes, that’s because he hasn’t preached to you. It’s weird how people become uncomfortable with others using their fame in matters of faith. Would it be hard to be Tommy right now? Probably so. But if he just wanted to live a normal private life he could have easily done that. Instead he’s chosen to project that he has the moral highground on matters of God and religion.
Plus, no offense, he turned Katie Holmes into a robot which was SUPER uncool.
I really liked her.
As commenter Snow Ball mentions; I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Click sucked on wheels. So you watch yourself Adam.

Seriously, how often does a WireImage photog just show up on the set of an Adam Sandler movie on the same day that his wife and kid are there?
Okay, you guys don’t look through every photo on WireImage like three times a day, so trust me when I say this is really random.
In the aftermath of rumors earlier this week that there was trouble in Sandler-dise, Adam’s wife Jackie and their one-year-old daughter, Sadie, showed up on the NYC set of You Don’t Mess with the Zohan to pose adorably together and there just happened to be an internationally syndicated photo service there! Now that’s comedic timing!
