      Bruno, i used to respect your opinions but mehn, you seem like a truly sad person. What has this post or his appearance on Jimmy Fallon got to do with being nominated for an Oscar? You shld let to celebrae with people, it will help improve your state of mind…..haba, wetin d guy do you?

      He is a great actor and whether or not he ever gets nominated for an Oscar will not diminish his talents and achievements. Last year was a really tight one in d Best Actor category so nothing to be sad about
