Sunday’s Oscars mark the end of an awards season that supported the Time’s Up initiative in response to the #MeToo movement that picked up steam in October when the New York Times published numerous allegations of sexual misconduct from eight women against entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein. The story inspired other victims to come forward, with Kevin Spacey becoming one of the dozens of men to be on the receiving end of accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior.

But now that those men have been rejected by Hollywood —Weinstein lost his job and the Weinstein Co. plans to file for bankruptcy; Spacey will no longer lead Netflix’s House of Cards and his role in All the Money in the World was reshot— their awards season glory has waned as well.

In light of the actors’ absence from the ceremony on Sunday, Macaulay Culkin joked on Twitter that Weinstein, 65, and Spacey, 58, attempted to crash the Oscars in Los Angeles.

“EXCLUSIVE: I heard Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein were going to come disguised as a very tall man in a long trench coat but they got busted by security. #Oscars,” the Home Alone star, 37, wrote.

Spacey starred in Baby Driver, which received nominations in the film editing, sound editing and sound mixing categories. However, neither Spacey nor Weinstein have been reported on the Oscars grounds.

Culkin skipped the Academy Awards, too, sharing on Twitter that he was cooking dinner at home— and composing his script for the next Emoji Movie — while still dressed for the occasion.

“Here’s some things I’m doing instead of watching the #oscars,” he tweeted Sunday. “1. Making ramen”
