Adam Sandler Has A Wonderful Reaction To His Oscar Snub

Sandler is happy he doesn't have to put on a suit.

44 Comments

The nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards have been announced, and the one of the numerous snubs was Adam Sandler. Critics and viewers praised his performance in the Safdie brothers crime thriller Uncut Gems, but the actor did not receive an acting nomination.

Sandler has now responded to the news. In a cheeky tweet, Sandler said there is a bright side: he doesn't have to put on a suit. The actor is known for his dressed-down look, often wearing baggy clothes and tracksuits with basketball shoes when he's walking around town.

Sandler also used his reaction tweet to congratulate his friends who did receive nominations, especially Kathy Bates, who played his mother in The Waterboy. Bates received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the Clint Eastwood movie Richard Jewell.

Bates--speaking in her character Mama's tone and style--responded to Sandler's tweet by saying Sander was "robbed" for not receiving a nomination for Uncut Gems.

Sandler himself stated that he would deliberately make a terrible movie if he didn't get a nod. Now we wait to find out what that movie will be.

Others who got snubbed this year included Awkwafina for her role in The Farewell and Lupita Nyong'o for the horror movie Us. Jennifer Lopez also turned in one of her career-best performances in Hustlers, but the Academy did not recognize her. Little Women director Greta Gerwig also did not receive a Best Director nomination, despite the movie picking up five other nominations. Check out GameSpot's roundup of this year's Oscar snubs to learn more.

Joker heads into the Oscars as the leader with 11 total nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Score. The Irishman, 1917, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood were close behind with 10 nominations each. Here's all the Oscar nominees for this year.

The 92nd Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 9.

Uncut Gems is a garbage fire and doesn’t deserve an Oscar. I walked out on it. Worst movie I’ve seen in years.

The attempt at nonchalance is palpably veiled in jealousy. Welcome to the real world, Sandler. Many people get overlooked in life and yet you, unlike most people are paid an inordinate amount of money to do what you enjoy: perform. So you didn't get your pat on the back, get over it.

@gotrekfabian: Please. There was nothing wrong with his response at all. Seems to me like he took it all in stride.

He made a simple joke about it, (he is a comedian after all), and you act like he threw a fit.

@aross2004: If he didn't care then he wouldn't have commented on it at all. I'm not saying he threw his toys out of the pram but he's definitely miffed at being overlooked.

@gotrekfabian: Who said he didn't care? I'm sure he does feel snubbed, and of course he cares, (just because he stayed classy by showing some levity doesn't mean that he doesn't care).

Just because people make a lot of money does not mean that they don't want, (or deserve), to be recognized for their contrbutions within their industry.

I make pretty great money, but that doesn't mean I'm above enjoying a kind word, or some kudos for a job well done. Sometimes it really means a lot when someone acknowledges your effort/performance beyond just monetarily.

Snub?

I saw the movie. It was a trip. Definitely good. His performance was good.

But it was not Oscar-worthy.

No snub here.

Uncut Gems looks great- critics loved it and audiences hated it, which means its likely great (audiences are mostly complete morons).

@BxMxS2004: It's usually the other way aroibd. Audiences rate their experience and if they had fun.

Critics rate on an agenda, how woke it is, how diverse, did it gave a moral they approve of, was it political enough and so on.

@Slash_out: Yeah, that's completely false, but probably makes a lot of conservative racists feel good to think about. Movie critics don't rate on liberal stereotypes; there are plenty of diverse and "woke" movies that aren't highly acclaimed. Try again. You're just angry more colors than the color white are being displayed in movies now.

@crono71: Aren't you libs supposed to be the party of tolerance and yet you never practice what you preach? Last I checked it was the left that created the KKK and Antifa which are both hate groups. Take your BS elsewhere.

@magnificent7:

Here's the definition of right-wing politics: "Right-wing politics holds that certain social orders and hierarchies are inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable, typically supporting this position on the basis of natural law, economics, or tradition. Hierarchy and inequality may be viewed as natural results of traditional social differences or the competition in market economies. The term right-wing can generally refer to 'the conservative or reactionary section of a political party or system'".

It's easily deduced which party fits this criteria today.

KKK was founded and is still run by extreme conservatives. For example, the KKK is virulently opposed to Catholicism, yet the left (Democrats) elected a president that was a Catholic (Kennedy) way back in the 1960s and also had another presidential candidate that was also a Catholic in recent times (2004, John Kerry).

You don't know what a hate group is. They've got people spreading Russian propaganda even on gaming forums nowadays. Go read a book, boy, and thank me for educating you.

@magnificent7: There are dedicated erotica sites on the Internet where you can share your homosexual fantasies without anyone judging you. You seem to be obsessed with butts, "white stuff on faces" and prison shower encounters.

Reading books will help with your fantasy sharing and maybe one day you'll also learn the difference between "your" and "you are".

@magnificent7:The whole concept of having an oscars academy ie. is bc otherwise we would only have fast&furious movies. These movies will always sell themselves as they solely rely on reptile brain instincts "sex, explosions, muscles, tits, haha-fun".

The concept of an academy like the Oscars is important to push thoughts that aren't straight up made for that monkey brain of yours.

"mask wearing Antifa butt buddies" lol. I'm happy you have video games to ease the pain.

Not everyone can win so being snubbed comes with the territory when you don't get the chops to make it.

Taron Egerton for Rocketman was a big snub. Rocketman was miles better than Bohemian Rhapsody. And the fact Taron sang the songs himself was awesome.

@maralzo: Christian Bale was snubbed for Bohemian Rhapsody to win imo. I don't think it should have won that many oscars. And when a movie with lots of similar strength comes along, I don't blame you for thinking it deserves to win, but I think Bohemian Rhapsody just released at a lucky time. Again only my opinion
