Albert Brooks Responds To Oscar Snub: 'You Don't Like Me, You Really Don't Like Me'
"Tomorrow morning I find out if I have to go to any more events that Christopher Plummer wins," comedian and nominal Best Supporting Actor contender Albert Brooks wrote on Twitter on the eve of the Academy Award nominations. Looks like he won't have to worry about watching Plummer win in person anymore. After giving a standout performance in "Drive" as an against-type gangster, Brooks was one of the most confounding snubs during the Oscar nominations on Tuesday morning. How did the lithe comedian react to the disappointing results? With jokes, of course!
I got ROBBED. I don't mean the Oscars, I mean literally. My pants and shoes have been stolen.-- Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) January 24, 2012
And to the Academy:"You don't like me. You really don't like me."-- Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) January 24, 2012
Keep your chin up, Mr. Brooks! Moviefone HQ still thinks you're the best runner-up to Christopher Plummer the Academy Awards never honored.
