After an arguable career best performance in Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler has failed to receive an Oscar nomination and is feeling deep regret.
Why? Because the actor has announced on Twitter that he turned down Grown Ups 3 thinking that this would be his year to get an Oscar but now feels like he has let down himself and fans.
“I knew the academy was going to f**k me on this,” writes Sandler online. “Ever since the Waterboy they were out to get me. I mean, if Matthew McConaughey can turn his career around then why can’t I do the same? Am I going to be crucified for doing Jack & Jill for the rest of my life?”.
“I was just about to start production on Grown Ups 3, but I thought you know what, maybe let’s do something different. F**k me for trying right?”
Sandler’s not the only one who’s being seemingly punished for past sins with the Academy also failing to recognise Robert Pattinson’s performance for The Lighthouse.
“These f**king Twilight films are going to haunt me for the rest of my life”, says the actor on Twitter.
The Academy is yet to respond to both actors’ comments.
