No nomination? No problem!
Leave it to Adam Sandler to make his 2020 Oscars snub the funniest thing to happen so far this year. On Monday morning, the Academy Awards nominations were read by Issa Rae and John Cho, and the it was revealed that Adam didn't get a Best Actor nod for his career defining role as Howard Ratner in the film Uncut Gems.
While the comedian acknowledged he was bummed about the news, he also took the time to congratulate one of his former co-stars. "Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy. Good news: Sandman can stop wearing suits," He captioned a picture of Kathy Bates in The Waterboy. "Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama."
Kathy played Adam's mom in the iconic 1998 film, and was nominated for an Best Supporting Actress this year for her role in Richard Jewell. Adam might not get the gold himself, but no doubt he'll be at home cheering on his former co-star.
