New Netflix Adam Sandler Movie Deal

This has been a hell of a year for Adam Sandler. The comedian found himself in the middle of a lot of awards season chatter thanks to his career-best performance in the suspenseful gambling drama Uncut Gems. Unfortunately, the performance (and the movie) went completely ignored by the Academy Awards nominations, so Adam Sandler is retaliating by striking yet another deal with Netflix to make four more movies exclusively for the streaming service. This is the Bad Place. Read More »

Conan O'Brien Roasts Adam Sandler

First of all, yes, we’re as surprised as you are to learn that the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has an annual awards ceremony called the Movies for Grown Ups Awards. Quite literally, this is your father’s awards show. It’s also your grandfather’s awards show, not to mention your grandmother and your mother.

But don’t like the label fool you. The AARP had the wherewithal to award Adam Sandler the title of Best Actor. No, it’s not just because he starred in a movie called Grown Ups, but instead for his work in Uncut Gems, something the Academy Awards failed to even recognize with a nomination. This sparked a candid moment when Conan O’Brien took a moment to roast Adam Sandler as the actor tried to come up to accept the award too early. It’s a moment that will probably be better than anything we see at the Academy Awards this year. Watch as Conan O’Brien roasts Adam Sandler below. Read More »
