Funnyman Adam Sandler may be on the verge of spending serious money on Salma Hayek.

Following the success of the 2010 Grown Ups, Sandler, 46, reportedly purchased Maseratis for several of his male costars – but not for his his on-screen wife. However, if the upcoming Grown Ups 2 outperforms its predecessor at the box office, Sandler implied that this time around he will ante up.

Who's misérable now?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Adam Sandler and Rihanna are among the "winners" of the 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards – the Razzies – which are not so much handed out as they are thrown at those who are voted as perpetrating Hollywood's worst achievements of the year.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2, the fifth and final installment in Stephenie Meyer's vampire saga, was recognized in seven categories, including worst picture.

The flick's Kristen Stewart was also cited as worst actress; Taylor Lautner, worst supporting actor; Lautner and 12-year-old Mackenzie Foy, worst screen couple; the entire cast, including Robert Pattinson, worst screen ensemble, and Bill Condon, worst director.

In addition, the film, which since opening last November has taken in more than $828 million at the box office, was named worst sequel.

Adam Sandler Sets New Razzies Record

Adam Sandler can ditch the high heels. His movie Jack and Jill, in which he played the twin siblings in the leading roles, turned out to be a bigger drag than anyone expected.

On Sunday night, the critical dud "won" 10 of the 12 Razzies for which it was nominated – a new Razzies record – being "dis-honored" in the categories of worst picture, actor and actress, supporting actress (David Spade as "Monica"), supporting actor (Al Pacino as himself), screen ensemble, director (Dennis Dugan), remake/rip-off (of Ed Wood's notorious Glen or Glenda), screen couple (Sandler and Katie Holmes and/or Al Pacino and/or himself).

"It's not really a clean sweep," Razzies founder John Wilson tells PEOPLE, explaining that the 12 total nominations for the movie included more than one in the supporting acting categories. "So it will go into the record books with an asterisk."

Sandler's nominations include worst picture, worst screen couple, worst screenplay, worst rip-off, worst actor, worst actress and worst screen ensemble.

Said Sandler: "I love this girl. My wife loves this girl. The entire world loves this girl. But mostly her family: Pops, Mom, brothers, fake sisters [long pause] and handsome and well-educated Justin Theroux loves this girl."

Theroux then clapped and blew Aniston a kiss, which she returned.
