How in the hell can you beat this? Is the studio for 12YAS going to promote Michael Fassbender like this? Someone needs to help remind critics and the actor’s guilds about the complete bravery, and the psychological preparation that it took for Michael Fassbender to breathe life into the man Edwin Epps. If Jared is doing this for an already easy to love character, someone has to offer Michael assistance, or act on his behalf and sponsor campaign sound bites to promote the brilliant performance that went into creating Epps. So far, two brave critics’ boards have named Michael as the Best Supporting Actor winner this week (Kansas City Film Critics, and the Online Film Critics). Otherwise, Jared has won the bulk of the critics’ awards, and the supporting actor from Nebraska has won a few. Michael Fassbender’s Edwin Epps is not lovable, he’s not someone that Michael can say he looked to a friend as inspiration, it’s not a character that Michael can relate to besides being human, and Epps brutalized and destroyed two other sympathetic characters that have also been consistently winning most of their categories thus far (Chiwetel and Lupita).
