Adam Sandler Addresses Oscar Buzz at 'Uncut Gems' New York Film Festival Premiere

Adam Sandler suits up for the premiere of his new movie Uncut Gems at the 2019 New York Film Festival!

The 53-year-old Murder Mystery actor attended the event held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Thursday (October 3) in New York City.

He was joined by his co-stars Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Jonathan Aranbayev, Noa Fisher, Eric Bogosian, Keith Williams Richards, Tommy Kominik, Mike Francesa, Ronald Greenberg, Judd Hirsch, Sahar Bibiyan, and directors/writers Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie.

“It’s a definite love letter to that neighborhood, to 47th street and the Diamond District,” Adam told Variety about the film at the event. “It’s exciting when you see it; it’s such a big part of New York. It’s a historic place, and not too many things have been shot there. When I prepared for the movie, I learned a lot about jewelry, and I met a lot of jewelers. I learned a lot about gambling, and I met a lot of gamblers. That’s been around a long time, both things. There’s an obsession with it there that I really tried to learn.”

On the topic of a possible Oscar nomination for his role, Adam said, “I don’t even know what to say; it’s nice, but I just want to do as good of a job as I can. I love the movie, and whatever happens, what can I do? It’s neat that they say that, but what can I do? I really loved every day at work. I worked hard. When I do my comedies, I work hard at those. They mean a lot to me. It was no different than when I did this movie.”

Uncut Gems hits theaters on December 25. Watch the trailer and see set photos!
