I love how self aware Adam Sandler is.

These 5 minutes alone are better than the entire Oscars of the past 5 years.

I immediately laughed when he said “Hello my name is Adam Sandler”

Imagine an awards show that let's someone get through their entire acceptance speech!

Can you imagine such a speech at the Oscars? We won't be seeing that this year.

"Hello, my name is Adam Sandler. Thank you. I stand before you trembling with thankful glee as I receive this this so-called best actor trophy, independently speaking, of course. First off, it’s great to see our host Aubrey Plaza again. Aubrey and I did a movie entitled Funny People 11 years ago. That was actually the last time critics pretended not to hate me for five fucking minutes. Catch you in another 11 years, Aubrey!

I’d like to also give a shout out to my fellow nominees, who will now and forever be known as “the guys who lost to fucking Adam Sandler.” How did that happen? Independent movie? Adam Sandler? “To get my movie I had to live in my car outside of fucking Ralphs, begging for nickels on fucking kickstarter, and all Sandler had to do was get Ted Sarandos stoned.”

A few weeks back, when I was quote-unquote snubbed by the Academy, it reminded of when I briefly attended high school and was overlooked for the coveted yearbook superlative category Best Looking. That accolade was given to a jean-jacket-wearing featherhead douchebag by the name of Skipper Jenkins. But my classmates did honor me with the allegedly less-prestigious designation of Best Personality. And tonight, as I look around this room, I realize, the Independent Spirit Awards are the Best Personality awards of Hollywood. So let all those featherhead douchebag motherfuckers get their Oscars tomorrow night! Their handsome good looks will fade in time, while our independent personalities will shine on forever!

I’ve got more, I’m sorry, I’ve gotta cruise through this. But in all seriousness, independent films have been a big part of the Adam Sandler ecosystem. From my first film, a fearless look into the American education system through the eyes of a privileged sociopath by the name of Billy Fucking Madison to my searing exploration of American college foosball and its manipulation of socially-challenged athletes like Mister Bobby Boucher, I have tried to sell my truths with a truly independent spirit, while also cashing some truly disturbingly large paychecks.

But tonight is about Uncut Gems. I want to thank some people. First off, of course, the person who shares my life, my home, my laughter, my tears: Scott Rudin. Two years ago, Scott said the words that would forever change my life: “No, those aren’t homeless rabbis, those are the Safdie brothers.” No, honestly, I do want to say thank you to the Safdie brothers for believing in me and thinking of me for this part, and I really had the best time getting to know you guys, I love you guys and I’m glad we’re tight now. I also want to say thank you to anybody who ever worked on any of the comedies I did over the years. You guys, I love you, and I’m glad we did all that work together that the Safdies and Noah and everybody liked our stuff enough to put me in their stuff.

And I truly want to thank my kids for reading Uncut Gems and saying, “Dad, you’ve gotta fucking do this movie. Fantastic stuff.” And my wife, I love you — thanks for running lines with me and thanks for hanging out with me, and we really had some fun on this one, so I love you. And thanks everybody for — it’s a great night, I appreciate it."

I’m no Adam Sandler fan, but he was seriously good in Uncut Gems.

Richly deserved!

This means the world to Sandler and his speech reflects who he truly is. This is what the Oscars should be about. Congrats Billy Madison.

He looks happier and healthier than he has in years; I hope he has faith in his skills enough now to keep doing roles he loves

Who's the actress at 3:43? She looks so familiar I swear I just saw her in something but I can't remember what she was in.

That's how you do an acceptance speech, as opposed to sanctimonious and ultimately self serving political sermons.

This and Adam's tribute song to Chris Farley are a tie for my favorite Sandler moment. Glad his luck has turned and people finally giving him some professinal respect.

Adam sandler to his wife of many years, the mother of his children: thanks for hanging out with me
Gavin Hinson

Okay but this low key may be one of the best speeches ever given. Why aren’t more people talking about this??
Ryan Akwar
Ryan Akwar:
I feel like his fans limited him. When he made Punch-Drunk Love, it was his first box office flop in years. So, he just continued to do comedies. Jack & Jill, despite being one of the worst films of all time, made a profit.
Slade
Slade:
He was fuckin great in Uncut Gems. He deserved it and The Safdie Brothers did a great job directing it.

BEST. ACCEPTACE. SPEECH. EVER!
It’s much easier to try and look good and constantly obey the status quo and be politically correct and win the accolades of the Academy. Much harder to actually BE a naturally funny hilarious person and deliver comedy with cleverness. Much harder to have the guts to speak your truth and choose to be the outlaw. Adam Sandler you ROCK!!! Here’s to breaking down the door of the snobby academy and making room for genius comedians!! 🥂
Congratulations!!! 😀👍👍

If Netflix has more films like uncut gems I won’t be stopping my subscription anytime soon!

I saw the movie a few days ago and I still can't believe I was watching Adam Sandler, he reminded me of Al Pacino.

He deserved this far back even when he did Punch Drunk Love. Like Robin Williams, their comedic energy and insight forced them to actually understand sadness on a profound level. Fantastic dramatic actor.

Some 30 second speeches feel eternal, this was over 4 minutes and i could have listened for another ten.
That's how you know Sandler is a natural born entertainer.

Watching the Oscars is going to be surreal since Adam Sandler has been completely ignored by the Academy.
It does not make sense at all!
Kishan Bhatt

He got robbed for not getting at least an Oscar Nomination.
*He Was Fucking Phenomenal!!*
Anthony Henry

Should have gotten these Oscar noms:

Lead actor
Original screenplay
Film editing
Original score


And maybe director(s)
RAW

The Academy can kick rocks, Adam made a damn good point in his speech and the fact that the new Star Wars got recognized by the Academy and not Uncut Gems just goes to show just how right he is. What Im referring to btw is the fact that the new star wars is LITERALLY eye candy, its so spectacular to watch but its SO hollow. Uncut Gems manages to tell a story while also sending the message that the story thats unfolding in front of us is just something thats occuring in a VAST seemingly NEVER ending universe. I dunno about you guys but that sounds like a challenging feat in itself and the Safdie brothers fucking KILLED it along with everyone else involved.

I honestly don’t mind long speeches as long as they’re funny and heartfelt (not reading off a list of names). It’s way more respectful than cutting someone off with an orchestra.
