Oscars: Patton Oswalt tweets for the snubbed actors and actresses


Patton Oswalt in “Young Adult.” (Phillip V. Caruso)
Patton Oswalt will not be able to add “Oscar-nominated actor” to his resume this year, despite turning in a critically applauded performance in “Young Adult.”

Like Albert Brooks, who was also — in my opinion, more egregiously — robbed of a best supporting actor nod for his role in “Drive,” Oswalt is playing off his snub with the best defense: humor.

(Jonah Hill, on the other hand, is taking his best supporting actor nomination seriously: “Wow. Pretty incredible day so far.”)

“Join me for a drink at The Drawing Room, @AlbertBrooks? Me and Serkis have been here since 6am,” Oswalt tweeted, beginning a delightful (and sadly fictional) story about how he and his fellow snubees were getting into trouble at a bar.

In addition to Brooks and Andy Serkis, Oswalt brings Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton, Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Olsen, Kirsten Dunst and Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as actual nominees Nick Nolte and Christopher Plummer, along for the ride.

He even gets a dig in at “Melancholia” director Lars von Trier’s Nazi comments. There’s something for everyone. Read the whole tweet tale below, then check out Jen Chaney’s top 10 snubs here.
