Pauly Shore praises Encino Man co-stars on Oscar wins, buuuddyyyy

Pauly Shore has wheezed the juice, offering congratulations to Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan on their Oscar wins.

Pauly Shore is sending love to some former Encino Man co-stars following their Oscar wins, although he did leave out the part about nugs, chillin’ and grindage.

In a tweet posted the day after the Oscars, Pauly Shore praised his Encino Man co-stars Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan, who won statues for Best Actor (The Whale) and Best Supporting Actor (Everything Everywhere All at Once), respectively. “…what I REALLY loved is that my old buddies from back in the day, Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan, took home the Oscars! Never quit on your dreams.”

Pauly Shore has no beef with Jimmy Kimmel, who made light fun of Shore’s career during his Oscars monologue, saying, “Two actors from Encino Man are nominated for Oscars…What an incredible night it must be for the two of you, and what a very difficult night for Pauly Shore. Maybe it’s time to reboot Bio-Dome.” Let’s not say things we can’t take back, Jimmy! After all, Shore and Stephen Baldwin are already down for a sequel, with none other than Bud Macintosh previously saying, “I would definitely do the sequels to all my movies… Stephen Baldwin texts me every day and says, ‘Let’s do Bio-Dome 2.’…if there’s much demand for these films…they’ll simply call my agent or my manager up and be like, ‘Yo, Pauly, they just greenlit Bio-Dome 2, you down?’ I’m like, ‘F*** yeah, let’s go.’” But really, good for Pauly Shore for taking it all in stride. It’s easy to knock the Weasel, but his appreciation of Fraser and Quan’s hard work and stellar performances show he is far from crusty, buuudddyyy.

There is another link(avitch) between Encino Man and the Oscars. After Quan won his statue, fellow Encino Man co-star Sean Astin sent his love to Quan via Twitter. The two, of course, also co-starred in The Goonies.

Realistically, this should about do it for the cast of Encino Man winning Oscars. Pauly Shore is spending much of his time doing voices in animated movies, including the bizarre-looking (and -sounding) Russian adaptation of Pinocchio. Shore did, however, pick up a Razzie for Worst New Star for Encino Man.

Forget Brendan Fraser and He Kuy Quan! What’s your favorite Pauly Shore movie? Let us know below!
