Timothée gave an interview for ‘Awards Chatter’, The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast. You can hear the whole thing here.
“It’s a dream come true in many ways,” says the 22-year-old actor Timothee Chalamet as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and begin discussing the last year in his life. During that time, he has appeared in three widely acclaimed films — Scott Cooper’s Hostiles, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name — two of which are nominated for the best picture Oscar (Lady Bird and Call Me by Your Name). Moreover, for his portrayal of Elio, a young man who falls in love while on summer holiday in Italy, in Call Me by Your Name, he recently became the youngest best actor Oscar nominee in 78 years (since Mickey Rooney was nominated for Babes in Arms) and the first person born in the 1990s to receive a nomination for that award. On March 4, he could become the youngest person ever to win it. The specialness of what Chalamet is experiencing does not escape him: “This is a great moment,” he says with a smile.
