Paul Giamatti Nominated for An Oscar

Russell Crowe has a reputation for having a bit of a temper and being somewhat difficult to work with. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t without his good qualities. For example, when awards season rolled around for the boxing drama Cinderella Man, Crowe asked the studio to put their weight behind Paul Giamatti for Best Supporting Actor instead of campaigning hard for Crowe to get a leading actor nomination. Why? Because Crowe promised Paul Giamatti’s dying mother that her son would get an Oscar nomination. Read More »

Watch the Unhinged trailer below.
