Adam Sandler thinks it would be quite funny if he gets nominated for the Oscars for his latest movie.

"I tell ya, I know it would make a lot of people laugh and it would make a lot of people happy around me," he told the news agency at the National Board of Review Gala on Wednesday in New York.

The 53-year-old known for his slapstick humour has starred in movies that don't fare very well with critics but turned out a critically acclaimed performance in recent drama 'Uncut Gems', reported news agency.
