Adam Sandler’s semi-jokey aggressive lobbying in 2019 to win a Best Actor Oscar for his role in Uncut Gems as Howard Ratner, a gambling-addicted jeweler, may have proved fruitless in the end–but that hasn’t stopped Netflix, who recently launched the movie in May on its platform, from celebrating his performance.
The Safdie Brothers’ crime-thriller-comedy, which earned $50 million and is A24’s highest grossing title to date, has gone down in history as having the fourth most F-bombs in movie history, and Netflix has just tweeted a four-minute compilation of every time those bombs were dropped. Maybe this is how he wins?

Cutting this together couldn’t have been quick: There’s a total of 560 F-bombs. This supercut is a both a testament to and a not-subtle clue about how relentlessly intense the film is. But with 560 F-bombs, that count places it behind Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street (569 uses), the F-bomb documentary Fuck (857 uses), and the Canadian movie Swearnet: The Movie (935 uses).
