Is it possible to be the best and the worst at the same time? Ask Adam Sandler. His wretched "Jack and Jill" cleaned up at the 32nd annual Razzie Awards last weekend, sweeping the entire 10-category event. Could it really have been that bad? We took a look at the competition in a few key categories to see how this historic victory was achieved.

The rest: Russell Brand, "Arthur"; Nicolas Cage, "Drive Angry 3-D," "Season of the Witch" and "Trespass"; Taylor Lautner, "Abduction" and "Twilight Saga -- Breaking Dawn: Part 1"; Nick Swardson, "Bucky Larson"
For the win: Taylor Lautner looks like he might cry if people make fun of him too much, and the rest of these guys already know they've done something horribly wrong.
The rest: Martin Lawrence, "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son"; Sarah Palin, "Sarah Palin: The Undefeated"; Sarah Jessica Parker, "I Don't Know How She Does It" and "New Year's Eve"; Kristen Stewart, "Twilight"
For the win: To be fair, Sarah Palin supposedly wasn't acting. KStew probably deserves an award for number of eye-rolls between takes, though.
Worst Screen Couple
Victory: Sandler/Katie Holmes and Sandler/Al Pacino
The rest: Nicolas Cage and Anyone Sharing the Screen with Him in Any of His Three 2011 Movies; Shia LeBeouf and The Underwear Model (aka Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), "Transformers"; Sandler and either Jennifer Aniston or Brooklyn Decker, "Just Go With It"; Kristen Stewart and either Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson, "Twilight"
For the win: Hey Pacino -- remember when you were in the FREAKING "GODFATHER"??? Katie Holmes needs stuff like this to distract her from Tom Cruise. You do not.
Victory: "Jack and Jill"
The rest: "Bucky Larson: Born to be a star," "New Year's Eve," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "Twilight Saga -- Breaking Dawn: Part 1"
For the win: Given how terrible the trailer for "Bucky Larson" looked, we're actually a little surprised Sandler managed to pull off the win here. Then again, we couldn't actually bring ourselves to watch either movie all the way through, so it couldn't been totally Oscar-worthy.
