Patton Oswalt scored a Critics’ Choice Awards Supporting Actor nomination for his role in Young Adult, and the comedian shared his excitement with us at the film’s premiere last week. “I really appreciate it,” he told us. “This is like gravy on top of gravy that was on top of icing.” The dude’s thrilled and we’re thrilled for him – he’s great in Young Adult and one of our favorite stand ups to ever roam the comedy clubs of planet earth.
The best part is that the Critics Choice Awards air on VH1 (January 12 at 8PM EST, ya’ll), so we get to hang with Patton again next month. “Is there drinking?” he asked of the show. “I’ll sneak a flask in.” Yes please, new boozy soul mate of ours! We promised the comic that if he found us backstage or on the carpet we’d have a bottle of his favorite scotch waiting for him. We’re hoping he takes us up on the offer; now all we need to do is figure out how much a bottle of Balvenie costs. Anyone?
