LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Grown Ups 2" is making the most noise at this year's Golden Raspberry Awards.

The silly comedy sequel about four childhood friends led the Razzie lineup Tuesday with eight nominations, including worst picture, sequel, ensemble, screenplay and lead actor for Adam Sandler.

Sandler is no stranger to the Razzies, which launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood's awards season. He won the worst actor trophy last year for the man-child comedy "That's My Boy." His 2011 cross-dressing comedy "Jack and Jill" made Razzie history the year before with a record 10 awards, with Sandler winning both the worst actor and actress prizes.

The Razzies announcement comes ahead of Thursday's Oscar nominations. Winners for the 34th annual Razzies will be announced March 1, the night before the 86th annual Academy Awards.
