Oscars 2019: Armie Hammer criticizes the Academy for snubbing 'Sorry to Bother You'
In an interview with Indiewire on the sidelines of Sundance Film Festival, Hammer, 32, addressed the film's lack of Oscar nominations.
"How much trouble do I get myself in here? If you really look at the kind of films and people that the Oscars really celebrate, I'm embarrassed to say that I wasn't terribly surprised," he said.
"I think that Boots, as a first-time director, came out of the gates swinging so hard swinging for the fences and knocking it over the fence. I think that that is the kind of thing that should be celebrated, what Boots was able to do," he added.

The actor, however, said the film was not made with the intention to "win Academy Awards."
"We made it because we believed in Boots and we believed in the mission and we believed in what the movie said. So we did our jobs, and this is just another example of the Academy keeping it in the Academy," he added. PTI
