Oscars 2020 Voter Thinks Adam Sandler's 'Arrogance' May Have Cost Him Uncut Gems Nomination

These are just the opinions of a couple of Oscar voters. But there’s still a lot to unpack here. First, it shows that these voters have short memories -- yes, Adam Sandler does a lot of dumb comedies. But he’s also given stellar turns in films like The Meyerowitz Stories: New and Selected and Punch Drunk Love. And while there’s undoubtedly a case to be made that a whole actor’s career can often influence their chances at Oscar glory, it’s worth asking whether or not that’s entirely fair. A great performance is a great performance, after all.
