Giancarlo Esposito has had quite a year.
The “Breaking Bad” actor, who has been in the biz for almost five decades, received his first Screen Actors Guild nomination on Wednesday.
Esposito’s infamous role as villain Gus Fring is one reason the AMC series was nominated for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series.
The 18th annual Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced Wednesday, and it's going to be a tough call for voters in several categories.
Check out the list of nominees, and tune in to see who will win on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. on January 29.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Demian Bichir, “A Better Life”
George Clooney, "The Descendants”
Leonardo DiCaprio, "J. Edgar"
Jean Dujardin, "The Artist"
Brad Pitt, "Moneyball"
A furious Corey Feldman is finally speaking out about Corey Haim being omitted from the "In Memoriam" montage at the Oscars, saying the Academy folks "don't have a handle on who the public adores."
"Corey's films have earned the industry over a half a billion dollars and his work remains an inspiration to young artists worldwide," Feldman tells TMZ of Haim, who was 38 when he died of pneumonia and a heart condition in March 2010. "Corey dedicated his life to the film industry. The same industry that failed to dedicate even 30 seconds to his memory."
As Marquee previously reported, Feldman was also unhappy that Haim didn't make the cut at the SAG awards and told the Hollywood Reporter, "I have faith that the Academy will make a wiser choice."
First Corey Haim was left out of the SAG awards' "In Memoriam" montage, and now he's been omitted by the Oscars too.
During last night's remembrance reel of movie industry greats who have passed away in the past year, "The Lost Boys" star, who was 38 when he died of pneumonia and a heart condition in March 2010, was missing.
As Marquee previously reported, Haim's pal Corey Feldman was furious that Haim wasn't included in the SAG awards tribute in January and took the organization to task at the time.
The fact that Corey Haim was missing from the SAG awards "In Memoriam" montage didn't go unnoticed by Corey Feldman.
"We have become used to not being honored by our peers in the industry," the actor told the Hollywood Reporter of his pal, who died in March 2010 at age 38.
Feldman, who co-starred with Haim in "The Lost Boys," "License to Drive," and the TV series "The Two Coreys," said he hoped his friend would be shown some respect when the Oscars airs its memorial montage.
It looks like this year’s awards season is going to have one boring Oscar pool.
Between the 12 Oscar nods given to “The King’s Speech” and the film’s victory over the weekend – with director Tom Hooper being awarded for outstanding directorial achievement in feature film at the Directors Guild of America Awards, Colin Firth snagging the best actor SAG award plus the entire “King’s Speech” crew being awarded with a best movie ensemble SAG honor – critics are betting that Firth and Co. will be accepting awards on February 27 as well.
As the San Francisco Chronicle puts it, last night’s SAG awards “helped to bring all into crystal clear view: The King's Speech, barring a shocking upset from The Social Network, will be The Academy Awards winner for Best Picture. “
