It seems the Academy isn’t yet willing to forgive Adam Sandler for his crimes against cinema, because it stayed well away from giving Uncut Gems any attention at all, which is a tragedy. 

Kevin Garnett’s debut performance as himself deserved a nomination at the very least. His role was pivotal to the story, and he delivered such a convincing performance it’s almost hard to believe he isn't a trained actor. Garnett, a basketball player, has to essentially be himself on screen, but at the same time must act. 

In spite of it being Garnett’s first role -and a very challenging one at that- he smashes it, and at the same time brings out some of Sandler’s best performances in the scenes they share. Academy politics might have robbed a lot of people of recognition, but I think we can be sure we’ll be seeing Garnett on the big screen again.
