Adam Sandler has come out with a warning to the Oscar selection board.
The comedic actor and producer is threatening to make Grown Ups 3: Fart Camp if he doesn't pick up an Oscar for Best Actor.
Sandler wants an Oscar for his role in Uncut Gems, a thriller directed by Josh and Benny Safdie.
He made this revelation on the The Howard Stern Show on Monday.
Stern pushed the usually media-shy Sandler to make an Oscar bid during the interview.

Sandler said, "The Safdie Brothers and everybody worked so hard on the movie that I didn’t want to do what I usually do and just go, ‘Eh, I can’t help you out there.'”
The actor, who is infamous for his casual looks for all occasions, said he would definitely don a tuxedo if he won.
He hilariously added, “If I don’t get it, I’m going to f—ing come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay."
The threat appears to already be working as Sandler was named Best Actor by the United States National Board of Review.
Uncut Gems hits US theatres on 25 December.
