Adam Sandler was not nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the drama Uncut Gems.
But the 53-year-old SNL vet – who is best known for the comedies First 50 Dates with Drew Barrymore and Murder Mystery with Jennifer Aniston – took the slight in stride when he hit social media on Monday morning: ‘Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy. Good news: Sandman can stop wearing suits.’
And then the father-of-two gave a shout out to his former Waterboy co-star Kathy Bates, who was nominated for her work in Richard Jewell.

All good in the hood: Adam Sandler was not nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the drama Uncut Gems. But the 53-year-old SNL vet – who is best known for the comedies First 50 Dates and Murder Mystery – took the slight in stride when he hit social media on Monday
Power couple: Adam with his wife Jackie Sandler at the 25th annual Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday evening
Bates landed a Best Supporting Actress nod.
The comedian wrote: ‘Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama.’
Bates played his mother Mama Boucher in the 1998 hit comedy film Waterboy. He even included a photo of Bates as Mama from the movie.
Kathy was quick to send him back a note. ‘I love you my Bobby Boucher!!!’ she began using the tone of her Mama character.
‘You was robbed!! But Mama loves you!!! I learned a new urban slang word for you! You da GOAT!! Not the one we eat at home, Son,’ she noted.
GOAT means Greatest Of All Time.
Joking after disappointment: The comedian, 53, said: ‘Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy. Good news: Sandman can stop wearing suits. Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama’
The actress also had a serious response to her nomination: ‘Thank you to the Academy for this wonderful recognition,’ said the Misery star.
‘I am very proud of this film and it was truly an honor to work with the legendary Clint Eastwood on bringing the truth of Richard Jewell to light, along with the incredible Paul, Sam, Olivia, Jon, Nina, Ian and Niko.
‘My hope is that this film brings the justice and peace Richard and Bobi Jewell deserve by shining a light on their story and his heroism.’
In on the joke: She responded with, ‘I love you my Bobby Boucher!!! You was robbed!! But Mama loves you!!! I learned a new urban slang word for you! You da GOAT!! Not the one we eat at home, Son’

Uncut Gems was a departure for Adam as he normally plays goofy characters.
The film is about a ‘charismatic New York City jeweler (played by Sandler) always on the lookout for the next big score makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime.
‘Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.’
Buzz on his performance began when he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award last year.

‘Joker began as an idea, an experiment really— could we take an ‘indie approach’ to a studio film by inverting it into a character study to reflect the world around us? Explore what we’re seeing and feeling in society, from the lack of empathy to the effects of the absence of love. I am deeply honoured by the overwhelming recognition of the Academy this morning, and I want to thank the genius that is Joaquin Phoenix, and all my incredible collaborators. We are beyond humbled that our peers in the filmmaking community have embraced the film and its message.’
