Extremely Humbling! What Gary Oldman Says About His Oscar Best Actor Nomination! 


I enjoyed meeting Gary Oldman (check out my interview with the actor for "Tinker Tailor" below) and his Best Actor Oscar nod is definitely deserving! Here's what he says about his nomination:

“This afternoon in Berlin I learned that I was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor. You may have heard this before, but it has never been truer than it is for me today; it is extremely humbling, gratifying, and delightful to have your work recognized by the Academy, and to join the celebrated ranks of previous nominees and colleagues. Amazing.”
---Gary Oldman, Berlin

It's a Shot in the Arm! Check Out Christopher Plummer's Comments About His Best Supporting Actor Nomination 


Just a heads up, I'm rooting for Christopher Plummer to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Beginners." Sure, it's a "career award" for him, but watch the movie and you will see a portrayal of a deeply conflicted man who suddenly finds freedom after coming out of the closet.

Here's what Plummer says about his Oscar nomination:

“It’s a shot in the arm for a young kid of 82 to receive an Academy Award nomination this morning. My gratitude to writer/director Michael Mills, the Academy, and to everyone involved with Beginners.”
-Christopher Plummer

Here is Peter Straughan talking about their nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." His wife, fellow nominee Bridget O'Connor, died of cancer in 2010 but adapted majority of the film.

“I'm stunned and thrilled to hear about the nomination. I wish more than anything in the world that my wife Bridget O'Connor - who did the lion's share of the adaptation - could be here to enjoy this moment. She would be so happy and so proud. I'm going to go and meet my daughter now and tell her how clever her mother was!”
