I was looking at Domhnall Gleeson’s work this year and this year he starred in 4 movies, three of which – The Force Awakens, The Revenant and Brooklyn may become Best Picture nominees. Add on that Ex Machina, which may get couple of noms in tech categories, it is quite the achievment to be in such big number of great movies.
So, is he breaking some sort of record? I doubt it happens very often in this number… Thanks for the info 🙂December 25, 2015 at 3:00 am #203857
