Adam Sandler, the esteemed actor that both critics and audiences alike spend large portions of time praising for his inimitable commitment to the craft of filmmaking, just scored another batch of bragworthy Razzies nominations. Sandler's Pixels and The Cobbler, both of which are actual movies that actually exist, earned the Hollywood veteran two spots in the Worst Actor category alongside fellow legends Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey), Channing Tatum (Jupiter Ascending), and Johnny Depp (Mortdecai).

Fifty Shades of Grey, a movie so good that some viewers reportedly violently defecated themselves while watching it, boasts an impressive number of nominations in the face of Sandler's usual dominance. The biggest upset here, however, is the fact that confirmed gem Fantastic Four somehow managed to warrant just a handful of nominations.

Peep the full list of prestigious Razzies nominees, via the Hollywood Reporter, immediately below this clunky sentence:

Worst Picture
Fantastic Four

Fifty Shades of Grey

Jupiter Ascending

Paul Blart Mall Cop 2


The presumably ecstatic winners will be revealed in February, just one day ahead of the Academy Awards.
