For the first time in many, many years, I skipped watching the Oscars last night in favor of playing The Sims 3. (I have a problem right now and I don’t wanna talk about it.) Based on the reports of its poor viewership numbers, I wasn’t the only one to ditch it in favor of other, more pixelated pursuits. One famous person who decided not to waste four hours listening to bad jokes and staring at a hideous stage was Macaulay Culkin. Culkin announced a day before the ceremony that he would be live-tweeting, but not watching, the Academy Awards.
It was wonderful.
You know how the first person that shows up at a party is totally lame?— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) March 4, 2018
I'm betting you Dustin Diamond is the first person on the red carpet tonight.

Best Cinematography: 37 years in film and I'm still not sure what a "cinematography" is.
When I get thirsty from a hard night of Oscar tweeting, I reach for a refreshing Dr. Pepper. Or I would if I HAD ONE.— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) March 5, 2018
(I would also accept Hawaiian Punch.)
Actually, the best original score of the year was New England 33 - Philadelphia 41 #Oscars— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) March 5, 2018
