Adam Sandler jokes that if he doesn’t win the ‘Best Actor’ Oscar for the film Uncut Gems then he might just “f**king come back and do [a film] again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay”.

Some would argue he’s been doing this for years. But Sandler is — believe it or not — actually in the mix to take home ‘Best Actor’ in the 2020 Academy Awards (according to the Daily Beast, anyway).

Time to get behind this underdog story.

The markets took a hit this week, thanks to the newest episode of Twitter Word Soup with Trump™.
