Best Actor: Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”)
A breakthrough staple so far this season, Chalamet has caught fire as a bona fide lead actor contender in this year’s race. He’s also had a busy year, appearing in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” as well. He is the youngest best actor winner in NYFCC history.
Congratulations to Timothée for winning the Gotham Award for Best Breakthrough Actor and for ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for winning Best Picture. You can see images from the event in the gallery and Timmy’s acceptance speech below. Thanks a bunch to my awesome affiliate I Heart Saoirse for these. More images coming, so keep an eye out.
Timothée attended several events these past few days for both ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘Hostiles’ and you can see images from those in the gallery along with some new photoshoot images and magazine scans.
And according to Desert Sun, Timothée will also be awarded the Rising Star award at the Palm Springs Film Festival on January 2.
Chalamet, who turns 22 on Dec. 26, is primarily receiving his award for his acclaimed performance in “Call Me By Your Name,” a Luca Guadagnino film with an adapted screenplay by James Ivory.
Chalamet also is featured in two other films receiving awards buzz. He plays an army private helping to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through a dangerous part of the Old West in Scott Cooper’s “Hostile,” starring Rosamund Pike and Christian Bale. He plays a boy giving Saoirse Ronan’s lead character her first sexual experience in Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.” The latter was nominated for audience awards at the Mill Valley and Gotham Independent Film Awards festivals while “Hostile” was the opening night film of the recent AFI Fest.
Timothée was awarded the Hollywood Film Award for Best Breakthrough Performance yesterday evening and you can see his acceptance speech below. The gallery has also been updated with images from that event and other from recent days along with a couple of photoshoots.
As reported back in November, Timothée was up for the Clive Barnes Award for his turn as Jim Quinn in The Prodigal Son. Unfortunately, he didn’t win the award, but you can see a group picture from the award show in the gallery.
