Stephen King, the author, has told supporters that he is sick of the snooze fest that occurs every year after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces the nominees for the annual Oscars.
The King of Horror took to Twitter to deny criticism of the nominees, and he praised the selection this year for being unusually fair.
Nonetheless, King must have escaped the temptation to whine about the Oscar nominees every year as much as publishing uncanny tweets about the culprits. Unsurprisingly, some fans were unable to resist teasing the literary legend.
Louise Mench reacted with a tongue-in-cheek remark that she has never been nominated for an Oscar.
When it comes to King's film adaptations, ZombieSchmombie noted that King's criticism of the Academy was relevant: the habit of repeatedly overlooking the horror genre.
Another fan slammed the Academy's selection process, pointing out the contradictory nomination of Top Gun: Maverick while passing Tom Cruise through for the tenth time, despite him carrying the whole film.
Another fan commented that the author should be awarded an Academy Award for his contributions to the film industry.
Kathy Bates won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Annie Wilkes in King's novel Misery in 1990. In addition, The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile both received Best Picture nominations.
King may find it difficult to connect to people outside of that privileged circle as part of the Academy's community. He wants everyone to enjoy themselves and without detracting from this year's nominees as they get their chance in the sun.
