TGIF 1.15.16

As this week comes to close, Michael Fassbender should be feeling very proud of his accomplishment with Steve Jobs. Michael received his second Oscar nomination on Thursday and this will most certainly increase his stock in Hollywood. When you think about the fact that over 500 films were released in 2015, and thousands of lead actors were not even considered to be nominated, it is a great honor to receive a nomination. In most cases, the nomination is the reward. Entertainment Weekly got Michael's reaction to his Oscar nomination. Michael says he is "baffled" by Aaron Sorkin not getting a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay - yes we are too Michael. Here are his thoughts about his nomination:

“I just feel very lucky, very privileged,” Fassbender says about the nomination. “It’s been such a great year for cinema, even films that haven’t been nominated.” This marks the second nod for Fassbender in three years; he was also honored with a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his role in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave. Asked if things felt different this time around, Fassbender said no. “I don’t think it ever changes,” he says. “The first time, again, I was very humbled by the consideration. It’s the same this time, especially considering the company that I’m in and the performances that haven’t been considered. It’s always very exciting. … Well, not always, just the twice.” While Fassbender was pleased to his about the nomination for his Steve Jobs costar Kate Winslet, the snub of screenwriter Aaron Sorkin left him confused. “It’s baffling, but that’s why I was saying that I feel privileged. You can never take these things for granted,” he says. “I’m just baffled by that.” - EW

A beautiful pic! I totally agree about Aaron Sorkin. Yesterday two serious Dutch actors said they hope Michael will win because his performance was so outstanding. Great because he is not well known over here.
