Did Viggo Mortensen win any individual Oscars for Aragorn? Can't Post

For Rotk? Because if he did, he has now had 2 movies where he has had academy rewards with one this year!

No [In reply to] Can't Post

The only Oscar nomination LOTR got in any of the acting categories was Ian McKellen in Fellowship for Best Supporting Actor, but he lost to Jim Broadbent in Iris.

Such a crime. [In reply to] Can't Post

The lack of appreciation by the Academy for some incredible acting in those films still riles me :( It helps, though, to know they won the Screen Actors Guild award each year for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. I forget which of the cast said it, but this award meant so much to them because it's recognition by their peers.

Some consolation, I suppose [In reply to] Can't Post

Although he might have preferred the major one! Still also, as I say he can take comfort in the fact that now he has appeared in two Oscar winning movies. Also, I'm afraid I think I spelt his name wrong at the title of this thread. Oh, well, Norwegian names do have tricksy spelling!

We don't grade on spelling ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd flunk out every day if we did! *shudder* You're right...being in 2 Oscar-winning movies is awesome. During the Oscar win the film did get, they said it was because of Viggo... and he was smiling that smile of appreciation. I think he likes that better :)
