Adam Sandler wins, uses speech to make fun of Oscars


Adam Sandler‘s critically acclaimed lead role as a frenetic, scheming jeweler in “Uncut Gems” may not have earned him an Oscar nomination, but it did win him a Film Independent Spirit Award. And the actor was happy to accept the latter, while jokingly acknowledging the former and letting the expletives fly.

“Thank you,” the “Sandman” said goofily at the start of his best actor acceptance speech. “I stand before you trembling with glee as I receive your so-called best actor trophy, independently speaking, of course.”

After tweeting a month ago about getting “no love” from Oscar voters, he was prepared for this. He read from a prewritten speech.

“You know, a few weeks back when I was quote, unquote, ‘snubbed’ by the Academy, it reminded me of when I attended high school and was overlooked for the coveted yearbook superlative category ‘best looking.’ “

A day before the Oscars, Adam Sandler accepts the Spirit Award for best male lead.

Sandler explained that, instead, he was voted the class’ “best personality,” and “a feather-haired” jerk (though he used harsher words) was named the best-looking.

“Tonight, as I look around this room, I realize the Independent Spirit Awards are the ‘best personality’ awards of Hollywood. Let all those feather-haired (jerks) get their Oscars tomorrow. Their handsome, good looks will fade in time,” he proclaimed. “Our independent personalities will shine on forever!”
