The “Home Alone” star expertly trolled his brother, Kieran, who was nominated for Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for TV, for his role in the HBO show “Succession.”
Culkin, 38, pretended to act surprised that his younger brother attended the awards show, and later called him “so handsome” on the red carpet.
Culkin poked fun at catching Kieran on television, barely visible in the background behind actor Henry Winkler. Culkin made sure to post a blurry shot of his brother for all to see:
After joking about Kieran’s seats at the awards show, Macaulay feigned shock that his brother was actually nominated for an award.
“HOLY SHIT KIERAN IS NOMINATED??? WHAT IS SUCCESSION?!” Culkin tweeted.
“Man, I should really answer his calls more often,” the actor joked. “Thanksgiving is going to be really awkward this year.”
Kieran didn’t end up winning, but Macaulay seemed more upset for another disappointed actor in his brother’s category.
“This show is rigged!!! I was totally pulling for Winkler,” the star joked.
And after the award was presented in his brother’s category, Macaulay decided he’d had enough of the Golden Globes and changed the channel to “Alvin and the Chipmunks” on Nickelodeon.
Though Macaulay himself isn’t up for any awards this season, “Home Alone” fans recently went wild for the actor’s portrayal of an older Kevin McCallister in a new Google ad.
Enjoy, ya filthy animals:
