The multihyphenate tops all previous years with a record-breaking 11 noms, while the stars of the uber-popular book-to-screen series scored worst acting nominations.

Adam Sandler hit a new low with his work as an actor, writer and producer for three of his films released this year: Jack & Jill, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star and Just Go With It

The comedian, whose three latest films have grossed $179.7 million worldwide so far this year, led the nominations for the 32nd annual Razzie Awards with 11 noms, more than doubling the record for nominations scored by an individual in a single year (Eddie Murphy held the record).

The awards show, which honors the worst achievements in film, announced this year's list of nominees on the eve of the Academy Awards. Joining Sandler is Katie Holmes for worst supporting actress (Jack's wife in Jack & Jill) and Oscar winner Al Pacino, nominated for worst supporting actor in the same flick. Both were also nominated for worst screen couple, for their respective onscreen romances with Sandler's cross-dressing dual title roles in Jack & Jill.

Sandler could potentially break barriers as the first male to take home a worst actress award. But competition is stiff in the category: Martin Lawrence is also up for the award for his portrayal of Momma in Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. The two actors are up against Sarah Palin (Sarah Palin: The Undefeated), Sarah Jessica Parker (I Don't Know How She Does It, New Year's Eve) and Kristen Stewart (Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I).
