Gary Oldman, Albert Brooks Stake Out Opposite Ends of Oscar Spectrum
This reaction quote just in from Gary Oldman, a deserving first-time Oscar nominee for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: "This afternoon in Berlin I have 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." Meanwhile, how is viciously smacked-down Oscar snubbee Albert Brooks doing?
Brooks elaborated via Twitter, naturally:
There you go: Oscar 2012, catch the fever! It's probably dysentery, but fever nonetheless.
