Macaulay Culkin’s Running Commentary Of Oscars Was Best Part Of Whole Night


I think we can all agree that the Oscars tend to drag a bit, and by the end most of us are looking at our watches and ready for bed.

But if there’s one thing which is worth us staying awake for, it’s the hilarious coverage the ceremony received on social media.

You can bet on Twitter to be a hive of caustic wit and opinion during any event broadcast, but for this ceremony, the best commentator is undoubtedly Macaulay Culkin himself.

Culkin has had a Twitter account for a little short of three weeks now, but he’s been woefully quiet online until last night.

He decided to live-tweet the Academy Awards for a change, and the results are incredible:

The 37-year-old Home Alone star also had a busy time on Reddit recently when he answered hundreds of questions on a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything).

Culkin was promoting his new weekly podcast called Bunny Ears, as well as his website which launches properly soon.

Describing the new podcast and website, Macaulay said at the time on Reddit:

The podcast is a weekly show where me and my friend Matt talk about stuff and things and stuff. Sometimes with a guest (Kevin Smith being our first, coming later this week!)

The website will be a collection of articles, videos and more; its is a online lifestyle magazine where I hope to shine a light on some of the things that influence my life.

Plus- everyone else has one. Why not me?

In return for the publicity over Reddit, Macaulay answered plenty of random questions, including one about his relationship with Michael Jackson.


The child star and Michael Jackson famously spent a lot of time together, which the media and public were concerned about, but Culkin has always said ‘it was a legitimate friendship’ and they were best friends for a long time.

One Reddit user asked Macaulay what his favourite memory of Michael Jackson was.

Macaulay responded:

When I almost crashed my golfcart into his and he called me ‘Applehead’.

Reddit users replied saying the memory was very ‘endearing’, while others claimed Michael really hated apples.


Aside from revealing his favourite memory with the late MJ, Macaulay addressed his drug use, saying:

Yes, I consumed and imbibed in drugs in my life. Never as bad as people said. It’s not really a thing in my life right now. I’m an adult.

I like to drink.

Someone give this guy his own award.
