2016 'Razzie' awards say NH hero Adam Sandler is a terrible actor in terrible movies
At least one awards show doesn't care too much for N.H. hero Adam Sandler.
Sandler was nominated in multiple categories for "The Cobbler" and "Pixels," including Worst Picture, Worst Actor, and Worst Screen Combo (Sandler was nominated with partner "any pair of shoes”) at this year's Golden Raspberry Awards celebrating the worst in cinema.
The Sandler vehicle, "Pixels" also lined up nominations for Worst Supporting Actor (Josh Gad and Kevin James), Worst Supporting Actress (Michelle Monaghan), and Worst Screenplay.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is all tied up with "Pixels," ''Jupiter Ascending" and "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2" for the most nominations.
The films led the Razzies lineup Wednesday with six nods each, including worst picture and worst actor for Jamie Dornan in "Fifty Shades of Grey," Kevin James in "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2," Channing Tatum in "Jupiter Ascending" and Adam Sandler in "Pixels" and "The Cobbler."
The other worst picture nominee is the superhero flop "Fantastic Four."
The announcement of the Razzies comes ahead of Thursday's Oscar nominations.
The "winners" for the 36th annual Razzies will be announced Feb. 27, the night before the 88th annual Academy Awards.
