Although Michael Fassbender has stated that he won’t be campaigning for an Oscar, especially after being snubbed for his role in Shame, the Irish actor has finally been recognized by the academy. He has been nominated for an Oscar making this nomination, his very first one (and hopefully with more to come).
Fassbender has been nominated for best supporting actor for his role in the movie, 12 Years a Slave. The movie has seemed to turn more than a handful of heads as it has now been known to be very engaging, moving and emotional for the audience.
Speaking of 12 Years a Slave, one other actress has taken the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave where she played as Patsey alongside Michael and she is, Lupita Nyong’O.
