Screen legend Peter O’Toole currently stars in Venus.
O’Toole plays Maurice, an elderly actor who develops a relationship with his friends great-niece (played by newcomer Jodie Whittaker). O’Toole performance is gaining award buzz, already receiving a Golden Globe nomination and it seems that the 74-year-old actor will receive an Oscar nomination. It is hard to believe that he has never won an Academy Award despite seven nominations. Could this be O’Toole’s year?
While we wait to see what happens, here are Peter O’Toole’s 10 best films according to John Hartl of msnbc.com. [SOURCE]
This is something to think about. If Forest Whittaker wins the Best Actor prize for The Last King of Scotland, which he most likely will, Peter O’ Toole, if he is nominated, would set a new Academy Award record.
8 nominations, no wins. I wish that would change.
