Adam Sandler is the worst. That's not a personal opinion, it's just a fact based on his across-the-board sweep at the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards on Sunday night.

The comedy star, who is already a Razzies regular, set a new high in lows at the event, when his critically bashed drag comedy, "Jack and Jill,"
 became first movie to win every single trophy handed out at the annual Oscars spoof honoring the movie industry's least laudable work. The film, in which Sandler plays a brother and sister pair of twins, was already a record-setter before the night began thanks to an unprecedented 11 nominations.

Among the "wins" for Sandler: Worst Picture, Worst Actor (for Sandler's work in "Jack & Jill" and "Just Go With It"), Worst Actress (as "Jill"), Worst Supporting Actor (for Al Pacino's cameo as himself), Worst Supporting Actress (for pal David Spade as "Monica"), Worst Screen Ensemble (for the entire cast), Worst Director (Dennis Dugan for "Jack and Jill" and "Just Go With It"), Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel ("Jack and Jill" for ripping off Ed Woods' camp classic "Glen or Glenda"), Worst Screen Couple (Sandler and Katie Holmes, Sandler and Al Pacino or Sandler with himself) and Worst Screenplay.

The movie, which was disliked by 97 percent of the critics at the Rotten Tomatoes website, set the Razzies record thanks to the love and adoration of the 657 voting members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation.

The previous record holder for the most Razzies was 2007's "I Know Who Killed Me," for which Lindsay Lohan took home two dishonors for her role as twins.
