“Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy. “Good news: Sandman can stop wearing suits. Congrats to all my friends who got nominated, especially Mama,” said Sandler in a tweet.
In 1998, Bates and Sandler worked alongside each other in The Waterboy. Bates played Sandler’s overprotective mother Mama Boucher and Sandler played the role as her son Bobby Boucher Jr. in the sports comedy
Bates responded, “I love you my Bobby Boucher!!! You was robbed!! But Mama loves you!!! I learned a new urban slang word for you! You da GOAT!! Not the one we eat at home, Son.”
