Congratulations to Eddie for his nomination for Best Actor for Les Misérables from the London Evening Standard British Film Awards which are held on February 4th at the London Museum.
Eddie Redmayne has hardly been heard of amidst all the Awards frenzy for his Les Miserables co-star Hugh Jackman, who picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday for his tour de force as Jean Valjean in the big screen musical.
But it’s the young actor’s turn to shine next, nominated in the Best Actor category in the London Evening Standard British Film Awards, for his turn as Marius, the lovelorn revolutionary left in despair with the loss of his comrades in 19th century bloody Paris.
The Awards are only open to Brits, which means there’s no Hugh Jackman or Bradley Cooper to worry about. But there is the small matter of Golden Globe victor Daniel Day-Lewis, who’s also considered the front runner for the Oscars, with his commanding portrait of President Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s epic of the same name.
