Adam Sandler’s”Uncut Stone” was re-classified as a play to its forthcoming Golden Globes.

A rep to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association affirmed Monday that the company had chased the entry of”Uncut Stone” because of musical/comedy, and it’ll compete as a play. Nominations will be announced Dec. 9.

In 2016,”The Martian” won the Golden Globe for humor, spurring the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to correct the rules a couple of weeks afterwards. The rules say that”dramas with comedic overtones needs to be viewed as dramas” instead of in the comedy or musical category.

Sandler portrays a New York jewelry store owner and compulsive gambler who is scrambling to repay his debts. The movie had its world premiere in the Telluride Film Festival in August and opens in theaters Dec. 13 via A24.

“Uncut Stone” was nominated for 3 Gotham awards and five Independent Spirit awards, including Best Film, Best Male Lead for Sandler, Best Manager for brothers Benny along with Josh Safdie, Best Script for Ronald Bronstein along with also the Safdie brothers and greatest editing for Bronstein along with Benny Safdie.

The movie has a 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  Even the 77th edition of the Golden Globes will occur on Jan. 5 in the Beverly Hilton Hotel together with Ricky Gervais hosting.

The re-classification of the entrance needs a vote with two-thirds of this HFPA membership with just members that have witnessed a motion picture entitled to vote.
