Macaulay Culkin Boycotts Watching Oscars 2018, But Still Hilariously Live Tweets the Show
By Rachel McRady
Macaulay Culkin might be home alone, but he was certainly keeping busy on Sunday night!
The 37-year-old former child star took to Twitter to hilariously live tweet the 2018 Oscars. The one catch – he didn’t actually watch the show.
It all started when Culkin wrote, “I will be live tweeting the Oscars tonight, but I won’t be watching them. WHA!?! That’s crazy! Question: Do you guys have any suggestions for what I should be doing instead of watching the show?”
He then slipped into a tuxedo and shared a series of photos of all the things he was doing instead of watching the annual awards show. These included: Making ramen, playing guitar, playing with toys, and painting his toenails.
He also made several hilarious comments about this year’s nominees, like, “BREAKING NEWS: Oh snap, @MargotRobbie just kneecapped all four other Best Actress nominees #Oscars #ITonya,” and “I don’t know… I thought the BEST costume was Black Panther’s cause he could deflect bullets. #WakandaForever #Oscars.”
The Home Alone actor also wasn’t afraid to call out several stars involved in scandals in the past year.
“EXCLUSIVE: I heard Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein were going to come disguised as a very tall man in a long trench coat but they got busted by security. #Oscars,” he tweeted.
He also shared a billboard with Spacey’s face on it, which read, “For your consideration. ‘I’ll do literally anything,’” adding, “#Oscars90 I heard there was a fourth billboard in that movie but it got cut out.”
