And there's been some strong reactions already.

It only seems fitting that in this modern era, selfies themselves are breaking records.

Here it is...

I mean, when you combine Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, and Angelina Jolie in one picture, you're bound to get an overwhelming reaction, right? Well, thirty-seven million people on Twitter wanted to catch a glimpse of it and yeah, it crashed the platform.

But the award ceremony has also been a platform for change.

Celebrities have used the stage to share experiences, awareness and give speeches that have sent ripples throughout the film industry.

Huge names such as Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, and Leonardo DiCaprio took home awards last night.

But everyone was pleased to see Joaquin Phoenix pick up an award...

He won the Best Actor Award for his leading role in Joker, and it's safe to say he's an extremely deserving winner.

However, not everyone received the Oscar nomination that they had hoped for...

And one of these people was the one and only Adam Sandler.

The actor is best known for his roles in light-hearted comedies such as Happy Gilmore and Little Nicky...

But in recent years, Sandler has embarked upon more serious roles.

Sandler has previously voiced his desire to win an Oscar for his role in Uncut Gems...

And despite not being nominated, he did win the Best Male Lead at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday.

But in Sandler's eyes...

This wasn't exactly good enough.

So he decided to joke about being snubbed during his acceptance speech...

He poked fun at his omission from this year's Academy Awards by comparing it to a "looks vs. personality" contest.

Sandler went into character using his best Waterboy voice...

"Hello my name is Adam Sandler... I stand before you trembling with glee as I receive your so-called best actor trophy, independently speaking, of course," he started by saying.

The whole speech came across as a bit of a joke...

He went on to say, "You know, a few weeks back when I was, quote-unquote, snubbed by the Academy, it reminded me of when I briefly attended high school and was overlooked for the coveted yearbook superlative category 'best looking'."

The speech was pretty savage...

"That accolade was given to a jean jacket wearing, feather-haired douchebag by the name of Skipper Jenkins," he then said. Sandler then declared, "The Independent Spirit Awards are the 'best personality' awards of Hollywood."

And just when we thought it couldn't get worse...

"Let all those feather-haired mother-f****** get their Oscars tomorrow night. Their handsome good looks will fade in time. Our independent personalities will shine on forever!" he said.

Fans all over the world were seriously impressed with his savage speech...

And many have found themselves agreeing with everything that Sandler said.

Watch the full speech here...

Either way... Congratulations, Adam Sandler!
