Viggo is not the type to campaign for a nomination. He's all about the art. And yet, he has been nominated for three Golden Globes and an Academy Award in the past which is a testament to what a great actor he is. If you didn't see Captain Fantastic ... you should.
Sadly, I doubt that he will win. In fact, he should have won for Eastern Promises which was a performance beyond excellent. And he never received a nomination for his performance in History of Violence, which, when I saw the movie years ago I said to myself ... that guy should be nominated for an Oscar!
But it will definitely make the Golden Globes MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE TO WATCH.
I don't know what is on Viggo's horizon. Haven't heard of any movie roles, but have heard he is planning to direct his first film. When? I don't know. So let's all send Mr. Mortensen some love through the ether shall we!
