[Blind Gossip] Whenever award nominations are announced, there are always bound to be a few surprises… and a few disappointments.
This esteemed and award-winning actor starred in an intense film this year.
When he was at the Critics Choice Awards, [a member of the Academy] came up to him and told him how much she enjoyed [a movie he starred in this year]. She said that he gave a “Beautifully understated and dignified performance.”
He was very polite and thanked her, but after she walked away he said, “Beautifully understated? Well, we all know what that means. Kiss that Oscar goodbye!”
He was overlooked for a Golden Globe Award nomination. However, we wouldn’t count him out for an Oscar nomination quite yet!
[Optional] Which male film actor do you think gave a great performance this year?
