"The Razzie Award" nominations are in, recognizing the worst movie features of the year. And one movie appears to be in line for a sweeping victory.

Adam Sandler received a record 11 nominations for the Razzies as star, producer or writer on three 2011 films, including "Jack and Jill," "Just Go with It" and "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star."

That more than doubled the previous record of five Razzie nominations held by Eddie Murphy for 2007's "Norbit."

He's even nominated for worst actor and actress for that film, in which he plays a family man and his own twin sister.

Along with "Bucky Larson" and "Jack and Jill," worst-picture contenders are "New Year's Eve," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."

The winners will be announced on April Fool's Day.
