Jennifer Aniston Addressed Adam Sandler's Oscar Snub In Her SAG Acceptance Speech

"Your performance is extraordinary."

During this year's SAGs, Jennifer Aniston took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in The Morning Show.

And at the end of her acceptance speech, she gave a shoutout to fellow actor Adam Sandler.

Now, if you haven't watched The Morning Show, you might not know that Adam Sandler...isn't in it. But the pair did star in 2019's Murder Mystery together.

They also costarred in 2011's Just Go With It.

And that shoutout? That was about Adam's Oscar snub for his role in Uncut Gems.

There were truly SO MANY people snubbed during this year's Oscar nominations, but fans — and many celebs — were particularly upset and surprised by Adam Sandler missing out on a nomination.

The Oscars are such bullshit. Lulu Wang and Greta Gerwig put out some of the best movies of the year. Adam Sandler gave the performance of his life (maybe the best of the year). Awkwafina was snubbed too. So these people just weren't good enough to be nominated???

Variety called his role in Uncut Gems "the performance of his career."

Are you fucking kidding me?! Adam Sandler was fantastic and he got snubbed??? #OscarNoms

@AdamSandler @MsKathyBates Sandman deserves all the love. Brilliant performance.

Thinking about how good Uncut Gems was and how Adam Sandler was snubbed

@AdamSandler @MsKathyBates I loved Uncut Gems. You and all of the performances, the writing, directing, camera, sound design and sound editing. Loved this movie.

NGL, I really think Adam Sandler got snubbed a nomination for Uncut Gems at the very least. If nothing else, his performance is magnificent in that film.

Truly aggravating that this is how they judge some of these very talented people that did fantastic work. Especially ⁦@AdamSandler⁩ He and the rest deserved better, then to be looked down upon for past work. Ugh 😡😡😡 https://t.co/IyrMsBlzbt

After seeing Uncut Gems I can now definitively say that Adam Sandler was indeed snubbed at the Oscars. He gave a fantastic performance in a fantastic movie.

they really snubbed adam sandler with the oscar nominations he’s amazing in uncut gems

Before the nominations were announced, Adam joked, "If I don't get it, I'm going to fucking come back and do [a movie] again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That's how I get them."

When it was later revealed that he didn't get a nod, the actor tweeted that at least he "can stop wearing suits." LOL!

Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy. Good news: Sandman can stop wearing suits. Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama.

Well, Adam, just know that we (and Jen!) all know you were robbed...get it?
