'Young Adult' Star Jokes Of Hosting Oscar Snubs Party
Michael Fassbender in a pirate hat, Tilda Swinton and Charlize Theron in a stolen police car, this is a party we'd like to see! Following the Academy Award nominees being revealed, Drive star Albert Brooks and Young Adult funnyman Patton Oswalt took to Twitter to jokingly call out the Academy for snubbing some of the biggest names on the big screen this past year.
It seemed to begin when Al -- who was nominated for a Golden Globe this year -- tweeted: "I got ROBBED. I don't mean the Oscars, I mean literally. My pants and shoes have been stolen. ... And to the Academy: 'You don't like me. You really don't like me." This tweet came after the 64-year-old actor said of Beginners star Christopher Plummer on Monday: "Tomorrow morning I find out if I have to go to any more events that Christopher Plummer wins."
But it Patton -- whose movie Young Adult and his costar Charlize were both snubbed -- that took these Twitter jokes to another level when he created a faux Oscar snubs party. The actor wrote to Al:
"Join me for a drink at The Drawing Room, @AlbertBrooks? Me and [Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor Andy] Serkis have been here since 6am."
That was just the beginning of Patton's hilarity via Twitter! Read the tweets below:
"@AlbertBrooks See you later tonight. Might be out of booze -- Serkis has Pogues on the jukebox & Fassbender just showed up in a pirate hat."
"Oh s--t -- we're DEFINITELY going to run out of booze. Charlize & Tilda just pulled up in a stolen police car."
"[Oscar nominees Nick] Nolte & Plummer just drove past, mooning us. Serkis & Tilda are singing 'Is There Life on Mars?'"
"Oops -- [Melancholia director Lars] Von Trier just pulled up in a pass van dressed as Goering. 'Let's go to Legoland!' With a boozy hurrah, we're out!"
"Oh. My. God. Just pulled up to Legoland. [Leonardo] DiCaprio's rented the park for the day. Dibs on the Duplo Gardens! #andscene"
