The nominations are in for the Golden Raspberry Awards 2012. And Adam Sandler leads the way, with eleven nominations…

The Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies, are usually given out the night before the Oscars. However, this year, things have changed, with the awards being given out this year on April 1st. That means that Oscar time has, instead, brought us the list of Razzie nominations.

Now, usually, the big accusation aimed at the Razzies, with some justification, is that it targets high profile failures, as opposed to genuinely abysmal failures. It’s an accusation that’s hard to shift, but having sat through more than a few of the movies on its list here, it’s hard to grumble too much.

Points of interest? Well, there appear to be four men up for actress awards, and it seems as if the categories have been reangled to give Adam Sandler as many chances as possible to take home a prize or two. And we suspect he might. His collective nominations here, for acting and writing, have set a Razzie record. Here’s the full list of nominations..
