Psst. You wanna win an Oscar? Your odds are pretty good, as long as you’re in a movie with Domhnall Gleeson. It’s not that hard to do, actually, since he’s in everything.
And he couldn’t have been more charming in this:
But more relevant to your Oscar aspirations, he was in four movies last year that racked up a combined 22 nominations. From the righteous captain in The Revenant to the lovesick Irishman in Brooklyn, to the nasty General Hux in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens to the clueless techie who falls for Alicia Vikander in , Gleeson killed it onscreen. And the nominations followed for everything from costumes and screenplays to acting and film–just not for Gleeson.
But that still makes him this year’s Oscars lucky charm. Here’s hoping some of that luck rubs off on him…eventually.
