Adam Sandler Wins at Spirit Awards 2020, Gives One of the Best Speeches of All Time (Video)

Adam Sandler appears on stage to accept the award for Best Actor at the 2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday afternoon (February 8) at the pier in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 53-year-old actor won the award for his work in Uncut Gems after being snubbed by most awards shows, including the Oscars.

Adam gave an incredible acceptance speech and it will probably go down in history as one of the best awards show speeches of all time.

One of the first things he said was an acknowledgment to the other nominees. He said, “I’d like to also give a shout-out to my fellow nominees, who will now and forever be known as ‘the guys who lost to f—ing Adam Sandler’”

Adam talked about losing the “Best Looking” superlative in high school and instead being given “Best Personality.”

“Tonight as I look around this room I realize that the Independent Spirit Awards are the ‘best personality’ awards of Hollywood,” Adam said. “So, when all those feather-haired douchebag motherf–kers go to get their Oscars tomorrow night, their handsome good looks will fade in time, but our independent personalities will shine on forever.”

Adam also made sure to thank all of the people who made comedies with him over the years.
