Along with Sandler, other big snubs for the 2020 Oscars include Jennifer Lopez, Robert De Niro, Christian Bale and Beyonce for her original song in “The Lion King.”
However, one surprise nomination also got a nod from Sandler, because she’s someone near and dear to his heart. Kathy Bates picked up an Oscar nomination for her role as Bobi Jewell in Clint Eastwood’s box office flop, “Richard Jewell.”
“Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama,” Sandler wrote on Instagram.
The two stars appeared together in the 1998 sports comedy classic, “The Waterboy.”
Much like Bobby Boucher, Kathy Bates will be up against a monster roster as she competes for Best Supporting Actress, including Laura Dern, Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and Margot Robbie.
