Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody
The top award for any actor as they take on the leading role, a very strong year which is evident when you look at the nominees!
Have a little look at the five actors nominated in the leading role . . .
Gutted about this one in all honesty as I thought Denzel was a much better performance!
The best actor race was looking like only one winner was going to come about but another which in recent weeks has changed a little bit with other awards going from Affleck to Washington. I certainly know who I preferred in their films.
Don’t forget to let me know who you would like to see win and who you think will win (if that is different of course).
He did it! Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant
By no means his best work but still massively deserved for Leo!
This year it seems as though only one actor has been nominated in a leading role the incredible Leonardo DiCaprio who looks to be getting ready to eventually get his very own Oscar. But four other men are nominated as well just incase you either forgot or didn’t actually know that more had been nominated! This category always leaves me disappointed as my favourite doesn’t often win . . .
With the up and coming release of Bridge of Spies I thought it would be a good idea to pick my seven favourite of Tom Hanks performances from over the years. It is actually a very difficult choice to pick the best of a double Oscar Winner, with another three nominations to his name. But that really does show the massive quality he has in his filmography. I have even had to leave out his incredible performance as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks out of the list! Another really bad thing is that by putting this post together I have realised that I do not have many of his films reviewed on Let’s Go To The Movies even though I have seen a very high percentage of his films.
Now for Best Actor in a Leading Role, once again I have managed to see all of these films and this category certainly does have some very strong performances. Apart from Cooper they are all first time Oscar nominees, which I think is a pretty nice thing really. Showing that new and old talent is being rewarded, two Brits in this category as well which lets face it has been mentioned absolutely loads on UK TV over the past few weeks. I am certainly hoping for an upset in this one in all honesty, I just hope it’s not so nailed on and straight forward.
The King’s Speech is being released in the US with a PG rating release (swearing cut out) and they have a new poster, which I just had to blog because it is such a lovely poster. Aiming the film more at the family audience.
Rumours are flying around today that Colin Firth is set to be included in the Queen’s birthday honours list in June to be knighted. This is after his Oscar-winning performance in ‘The King’s Speech’ in which he portrays King George VI. He has been an incredible ambassador for the UK throughout his entire career. I would be very happy to see Colin knighted. I guess we just have to wait to find out if there is any truth in the rumours!
