Clint Eastwood is sitting pretty with his 4 Oscar wins, 2 for Million Dollar Baby and 2 for Unforgiven. Will J. Edgar add to his collection?

Eastwood has his Oscar but DiCaprio has yet to pull out a win, nominated 3 times prior, twice for leading actor (The Aviator & Blood Diamond) and once for supporting role (Gilbert Grape). Will J. Edgar be the performance to earn him his first Oscar?

Set to follow the FBI director’s scandalous career and controversial private life as a homosexual and rumored cross dresser, it sure smells like an Oscar movie.

Awards aside I think its safe to say with Clint Eastwood directing and Leonardo DiCaprio starring, we are in for something great.

  1. The following content was provided by the publisher.
    With over 50 years in show business, Clint Eastwood has established himself as a film legend by creating memorable characters and directing enduring movies. Now, four of his most unforgettable films are available together in the “Clint Eastwood: American Icon Collection”. Featuring some of his most diverse roles, this set brings you the thrills and excitement of “Play Misty For Me” and “The Eiger Sanction” (both also directed by Eastwood), as well as the riveting intrigue and passion of “Coogan’s Bluff” and “The Beguiled”. Showcasing the career of a true Hollywood star, the “Clint Eastwood: American Icon Collection” is a must-own addition to any film library. “Play Misty For Me”: Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this contemporary thriller about psychotic obsession.

  2. I think Leonardo has been in the game long enough and has paid his dues; they should give him an Oscar on principle alone. Just because he hasn’t won one yet and we all know he deserves it. He’s THE BEST actor in Hollywood.

  3. Bernard that’s not true at all. Look at Clint Eastwood and other actors. They didn’t get their big award break until long down the road. With people thinking like that, there would be no hope for anybody.

    1. You are talking about the Golden Globes.

      The Oscars have a rule that you can only be nominated for one movie.

      Ask yourself if an actor should have a chace of being nominated for five movies. Or lose because he had the best two perfomances but his votes were cut in half so the third best performence wins.
