Not every year Adam Sandler finds himself among the contenders for the awards season of the year. The comedian has drastically turned to the role of a New York Diamond District merchant who descends into a dangerous rabbit hole in Safdie Brothers' non-circular Gems . Depending on how the Oscar season is unleashed, Sandler's name could be called along with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Christian Bale and Adam Driver for awards. His thoughts? In his words:
If I don't understand it, I'm gonna fucking go back, and I'll do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That's how I get them.
Watch your back! Adam Sandler is ready to do Jack & Jill 2 : Double Trouble – if you don't get that golden trophy on the biggest night in Hollywood. Of course, the actor was joking in his recent appearance in The Howard Stern Show . Or was it? I mean, the first Jack & Jill already exists … not to mention Grown Ups 2 . This could actually be a legitimate threat. Attention, Academy!
It is a clever comment since in recent years the actor has received a lot of flack for his comedy films (insert ours Murder Mystery review). It has been a hot moment since Adam Sandler was praised for one of his film roles. Many argue that he always interprets himself in some way. But then there is Uncut Gems .
As a diamond trader and gambling addict, Howard Ratner, Sandler completely disappears in his role in A 24 publication. Uncut Gems is an epic fueled by anxiety by the directors behind Good Time and Sandler's performance was named an unmistakable highlight. Now the potential of the actor who receives his first Oscar nomination is not at all outside the realm of possibility.
When Adam Sandler was asked to get the Oscar's attention for his Uncut Gems role, talked about how he didn't work harder than he does in his comedy films, but he really “loved working every day”. The actor learned a lot about the jewelry district in New York and almost suffocated himself while playing the part. Uncut Gems currently has a near-perfect 95% fresh score on rotten tomatoes.
Back to 872, Adam Sandler previously has taken on a very animated dramatic role (and one of his best films to date) in Paul Thomas Anderson Punch-Drunk Love . When he was not nominated for the role, many believed he was being snubbed.
Do you have a chance during this year's prize season? Uncut Gems arrives in a particularly strong year in films in which films like The Irishman , Once Upon a Time in Hollywood , Joker , Ford v . Ferrari and the like also exist. Stay tuned with us here on CinemaBlend while the season takes place!
