Adam Sandler threatens to make a movie that is 'so bad on purpose' if he doesn't win Oscar for Uncut Gems

The morning after losing to Adam Driver at the Gotham Awards , Sandler appeared on The Howard Stern Show to promote his dramatic turn in Uncut Gems , an adrenaline-filled thriller from directors Josh and Benny Safdie.

In the film, the comic stars as Howard Ratner, a gambling addict trying to dig himself out of a massive hole.

The performance is drawing rave reviews, to which Sandler joked to Stern, “That’s shocking, right?”

During the interview, Stern pushed for the usually media-shy Sandler to step up his campaigning in pursuit of an Oscar nomination.

Sandler admits that it would be a “funny big thing” if he scores his first Oscar nomination, saying that he’d be “there to win,” hence why he’d even ditch his famous casual look for a Nike tuxedo.

It might already be working, as after the Stern interview it was announced Sandler was named Best Actor by the National Board of Review , giving him a leg up in the Oscar race.
