Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 leads Razzie nods

He may be a regular box office hit in Ireland, but Adam Sandler has once again topped nominations for The Golden Raspberry Awards, Hollywood's annual ceremony for flop flicks.

It's the nomination no one wants to get and Sandler's disastrous sequel Grown-Ups 2 is up for eight of these anti-accolades.

The not very funny flick, which was written and produced by Sandler, is nominated in the Worst Picture, Worst Sequel, Worst Screenplay and Worst Ensemble Cast categories.

Sandler is also nominated for Worst Actor, while co-stars Taylor Lautner and Salma Hayek will compete for Worst Supporting Actor and Actress respectively.

Director Dennis Dugan completes the film's eight nominations with a Worst Director nod.

The 47-year-old star is no stranger to the Razzies as his movie Jack and Jill made Razzie history by collecting ten awards in 2011, including Worst Actor and Worst Actress for Sandler.
