Could 2018 finally be the year for Oldman’s Oscar win?
The Toronto Film Festival continued this week with the North American premiere of Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour; a drama about the earliest days of Winston Churchill’s prime ministry, when the freshly anointed politician was forced to navigate the waters of a peace treaty with Hitler. The Oscar buzz is out and it looks like this could be the role that finally strips Gary Oldman of the title, “Best Actor To Have Never Won An Oscar.” If Leo can do it, why not Gary?
The panel was moderated by Eric Cohanic and featured director Joe Wright, Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas (for her role as Clementine Churchill), Ben Mendelsohn (who played King George VI), and the film’s screenwriter Anthony McCartan.
They discussed why no one wanted to make this movie, the hours of prosthetics it took to pull it off, and the vape-sesh that made it all possible. Check out the best moments below.
