Oscar contenders (and their publicists) have all different sorts of ways to try to appeal to Academy Awards voters during awards seasons.
A key to generating votes is being relatable to the majority of voters.
In the past, we’ve revealed to you how one actor suddenly got very involved with his wife and kids to look like a family man.
A second actor got married to portray himself as more mainstream than he actually is. Now let’s talk about our third actor!
He’s basically a rich, spoiled, self-involved, self-indulgent ladies man.
However, those things don’t make him relatable to most of the people in his category.
So instead of the usual stories about decadent parties and gorgeous girls, you’ll see sympathetic stories about how he really is just a nice, normal guy making sacrifices for his art and looking to settle down.
Of course it’s all baloney… but he REALLY wants that Oscar!
