I don't know exactly at what point Adam Sandler became a complete and total blight on comedy, but I think he's hit his anti-peak last year with Jack & Jill and in bringing us the cinematic atrocity that is Bucky Larson.
I'm in awe over how many snubs there were this year. No Smurfs, no Chipmunks, and barely any mention of The Zookeeper. As much as I agree with the Sandler noms, I have to say I'm really disappointed in this year's field of Razzies.
Jack & Jill is on pace to put up a Titanic-esque haul this year.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
I'm not a big fan of putting Transformers in there so much; I thought that movie was much better than 2. That being said, the "underwear model" as they put it was really terrible in her role. She made Megan Fox look like Meryl Streep.
I'm sad to see Nick Swardson get recognized, but I also heard how bad Bucky Larson is, so it isn't surprising. Nick is great as a supporting character in movies like Grandma's Boy and 30 Minutes or Less, so I hope he gets another shot at headlining a movie.

Sarah Palin for Worst Actress? Really? Yeah, Palin might be a total ditz, but I didn't realize being a moron in a documentary meant you could get nominated for any kind of acting award. (But then again, I seem to remember the Razzies nominating pretty much the entire Bush administration for Farenheit 9/11, so I guess there's precedent.)
And I guess Zack Snyder breathed a sigh of relief once Jack & Jill and Bucky Larson came out, because a year ago I would have sworn that Sucker Punch would have been nominated for a ton of Razzies.

Holy crap, I completely forgot about Sucker Punch. How did THAT wind up with zero noms?
Unfortunately, our little video utopia known as VH-1 Classic may also be experimenting with a change: On weekends in Feb & March, they're going to show some "Movies that Rock" and some "Behind the Music"s.
