Adam Sandler wins at Spirit Awards

During the ceremonies, the 53-year-old Sandler received the award for a best male lead for his role in the film Uncut Gems.    

Hitting the stage for his acceptance speech, Sandler gave a shout-out to his fellow nominees, who he said “will henceforth be known as the guys” who “lost to Adam Sandler.”  

Then, he compared his Oscars snub to getting passed up for the high school yearbook superlative of “best looking,” winning “best personality” instead.  

In Uncut Gems, Sandler plays a Jewish jeweler and gambling addict in New York City’s Diamond District, who must retrieve an expensive gem he purchased to pay off his debts.
