“Home Alone” star Macaulay Culkin, who’s 37 now and described by The New York Post’s Page Six as a “former actor,” live tweeted the Oscars on Sunday, offering a running critique of the ceremony that was generally unflattering.
But he also said he wasn’t watching the show.
“I will be live tweeting the Oscars tonight, but I won’t be watching them. WHA!?! That’s crazy,” Culkin said at the start of his tweetstorm. “Question: Do you guys have any suggestions for what I should be doing instead of watching the show?”
The Post notes that Culkin then “proceeded to tweet a series of photos of various activities in which he’d partaken instead of watching Hollywood’s biggest night, including painting his toenails, cooking ramen and playing old-school video games, all while clad in a tuxedo.”
You can read his full set of quips on his Twitter account, but here are a few highlights:

- “WOW. @jimmykimmel is #SoBrave for hosting the show in his native dialect. I bet Jimmy Kimmel’s humor is so dry tonight it could easily be a #VaginaMonologue.”
- “James Franco is a disaster. Artists? #CallMeRogen #OrGoldberg #Imnotpicky … The Disaster Artist was the worst harry potter movie this year.”
- “I’m bummed this is the FOURTH year in a row I was left out of the In Memoriam #Oscars #NotDeadYet.”
He invoked Kevin Spacey’s image for the following tweet …
