Macaulay Culkin Jokes About His Brother Kieran At The Golden Globes

After spending a long time seemingly out of the game, Macaulay Culkin has re-entered the public eye with a bang recently.

When the nominations for Best Supporting Performance were announced, Culkin decided to play dumb and pretend that he'd never even heard of his brother's show:

Aye, right.

Well, in the end, Kieran didn't win. The award was taken home by Ben Wishaw for his role in A Very English Scandal. That offered Macaulay one last chance to get a jibe in at his bro:

Given his return to presenting, acting (in a Google ad, but it's a start) and public life, perhaps Macaulay will even get himself invited to the actual ceremony next year.
