Razz­ies award usual sus­pects

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Hey ev­ery­body, it’s time for the peren­ni­ally un­a­mus­ing Razzie nom­i­na­tions. As ever, the Golden Rasp­berry Awards, ac­knowl­edg­ing the worst of cinema, took the easy op­tion and got stuck into such peren­nial tar­gets as Adam San­dler, Ni­co­las Cage, and the Twi­light and Trans­form­ers movies.

San­dler re­ceived a record 11 nom­i­na­tions for his con­tri­bu­tion to the mis­matched-twin com­edy Jack and Jill, break­ing the record set (un­will­ingly, one as­sumes) by Eddie Mur­phy in 2007. This col­umn’s great chum Al Pa­cino gets a worst sup­port­ing nod for Jack. The time re­ally has come for the or­gan­is­ers to show a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion.
