ADAM SANDLER may never win an Oscar, but there won't be any room for it anyway with all his Razzies.

His critically lambasted cross-dressing comedy "Jack and Jill" made history of sorts on April Fools' Day night when it became the first film to sweep every category in the 32 years of Razzie Awards, honoring the worst in movies.

"Jack & Jill" won for worst film of 2011 and worst actor and actress - with both acting awards going to Sandler. It took the prize in all seven other categories too, including for Al Pacino as worst supporting actor, David Spade as worst supporting actress and Dennis Dugan as worst director.

The directing award for Dugan and the acting award for Sandler also recognized their work on another 2011 comedy, "Just Go With It."

The other worst film nominees included "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star," which Sandler co-wrote; "New Year's Eve"; "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"; and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1."

It's believed that Sandler saw all three of those movies.

Mr. Warmth awarded

Don Rickles will receive a special honor from Jon Stewart at the second annual Comedy Awards this month.

The 85-year-old comedian has been chosen to receive the Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence. Rickles credits Carson for giving him his big break on "The Tonight Show" when he first appeared in 1965. He went on to be a frequent guest, appearing more than 100 times and would even fill-in for Carson.

David Letterman won the award last year.

TATTBITS

Alec Baldwin is giving marriage another shot. The 54-year-old birthday boy popped the question over the weekend to his 28-year-old yoga instructor girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas.

He's in AARP. She's young and flexible.

Why wait?

What could be in Alec Baldwin's future?

Bruce Willis, 57, is a father again.

The actor's wife, designer-model Emma Heming Willis, 33, gave birth Sunday in Los Angeles to a girl. They named their daughter Mabel Ray Willis, who weighed 9 pounds and 1 ounce.

This is the couple's first child together. Willis and Heming were married in 2009.

Willis has three daughters, 23-year-old Rumer, 20-year-old Scout and 18-year-old Tallulah, from his previous marriage to actress Demi Moore.

"American Idol" contestant Joshua Ledet is getting a special delivery in Hollywood courtesy of his home state of Louisiana - tamales from Zwolle, a town rich in Spanish and Indian heritage.

Ever since Ledet, a native of Westlake, La., mentioned on the Fox reality-TV show several weeks ago that one of the things he missed most while competing in Los Angeles was Louisiana food, the Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne has been overseeing shipments of Louisiana eats in what he calls a "Feed the Dream" effort.

Dardenne and the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board sent about 60 pounds of boiled crawfish to Hollywood a few weeks ago. The crawfish were followed by a shipment of boudin - a Cajun sausage - and then by jambalaya.

Dardenne does realize that Ledet gets paid in Hollywood and there are people actually going hungry in Louisiana, right?

The Killers, the Black Keys, Jack White and more than 30 other acts are set to hit the stage for the Firefly Music Festival in Delaware.

Tickets are set to go on sale Thursday.

MTV.com reports that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and "Voice" judge and his girlfriend of two years, model Anne V (for Vyalitsyna), have split. People magazine says they're still friends.

The Russian superdupermodel met Adam at a Sports Illustrated swimsuit-issue release party in early 2010, where Maroon 5 performed.

Maybe his man-crush on Blake Shelton is affecting Adam's love-life. n
