There were a few surprises at Tuesday's Academy Award nominations announcement, and some have already hit Twitter to air their grievances.
Albert Brooks, who was presumed to be a shoe-in for a Best Supporting Actor nomination, tweeted his concession about an hour after nominations were announced -- with his name conspicuously absent.
I got ROBBED. I don't mean the Oscars, I mean literally. My pants and shoes have been stolen.
He followed up with another tweet a few minutes later:
And to the Academy: 'You don't like me. You really don't like me.'
The second tweet was a reference to Sally Field's 1984 Academy Award acceptance speech. Field won the Best Actress trophy for her role in Places in the Heart, and won the hearts of audiences everywhere with her tearful gratitude.
I want to say thank you to you, she told the audience. I haven't had an orthodox career. And I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it. And I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now. You like me!
Though she never used the adjective really, the speech is routinely misquoted as though she did.
Brooks has been primarily known for comedic roles, but stunned audiences with his brilliant turn as a terrifying but strangely likeable uber-villain in Drive. Brooks had to fight -- literally -- for the role: In a Backstage interview in 2011, he confessed to pinning director Nicolas Windng Refn against the wall to show him I had strong arms.
Though Brooks may have been counting on a nomination, it doesn't sound like he was expecting to take home the trophy. On Monday, he tweeted, Tomorrow morning I find out if I have to go to any more events that Christopher Plummer wins.
