Brendan Fraser will not be at the Golden Globes

Actor Brendan Fraser has been hailed as the comeback kid after his performance in Darren Aronofsky’s ‘The Whale’ made him an Oscar nominee. diverseAnd the Indy Wire And the Daily prizes All have Frasier near the top of their Best Actor lists along with Austin Butler for his performance as the King of Rock and Roll in “Elvis” and Colin Farrell for his role in “The Banshees of Inisherin'”.

“The Whale” is a film about a 600-pound writing teacher in failing health who desperately wants to reconnect with his daughter. “With The Whale, Aronofsky and Fraser took huge risks, in the name of empathy and persistence. I believe, and I agree with my tear ducts, that those risks paid off,” wrote Glenn Kenny. Roger Ebert.

Usually, when people are Oscar frontrunners, they’re also likely to receive a Golden Globes nod. However, if Fraser is nominated, he will not attend.

“I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” Fraser told GQ. In an intimate interview. “No, I will not participate.”

“It’s because of the history I have with them,” Fraser continued. “And my mother did not raise a hypocrite. You can call me many things, but not this one.”

Fraser claims that in 2003, Philip Burke, former president and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), Groped and sexually assaulted Fraser At a luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “I felt sick. I felt like a little kid.” he told GQ. “I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry.”

When Fraser made the claim public in 2018, it led to an outpouring of support for the actor at a time when health issues and trauma from the assault forced him to retreat from the limelight. Burke disputes Fraser’s claim and reaches out to him but admits no wrongdoing.

Burke denied the allegation In the current situation: “Mr. Fraser’s version is a complete fabrication.”

The HFPA wrote a joint statement for Fraser to sign but he refused because he felt it belittled Burke’s behaviour. Burke was kicked out of the HFPA last year but not for his behavior towards Frasier. He was fired after he wrote an email to HFPA members titled Black Lives Matter a A “racist hate group”.

Fraser’s critical acclaim for his performance in ‘The Whale’ is a welcome return for the actor and his fans who see him as part of their childhood. He has delighted many of the younger generation and millennials with his performances in the 90s and 2000s, including the “School Ties” franchise, “Encino Man”, “The Mummy”, and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action”.
