This is the main victory of his career for Brendan, who managed to win the Oscar for the best actor acting as Charlie in ‘Dog’, directed by Darren Aronofsky.
The actor, who delighted millions of viewers in the 1990s with “The Mummy” and “George of the Jungle,” won Academy Awards for playing an obese professor who, plagued by grief, compulsively eats.
In the best actor category, Fraser Austin Butler for ‘Elvis,’ Colin Farrell for ‘Banshees of Inisherin,’ Paul Mescal for ‘Postsun,’ and Bill Nighy for ‘Live.’
While going up to claim the award, one of the commentators of the TNT and HBO Max awards in Spanish mentioned how hard this actor has been today, 54 years old. “This triumphant return to Brendan Fraser seems to me very well deserved. She left the screens due to problems with pain, an addiction to painkillers, suffering rejection after suffering sexual abuse and suffering from her son’s autism and not a little.
Visibly moved and with a broken voice, Fraser gave this award by thanking the film’s director, Darren Aronofsky, for giving him the role of a lifetime and putting him on board this “ship with the whale”, referring to the film’s title.

When Jessica Chastain and Halle Berry were announced as winners, Brendan Fraser broke down in tears and took the stage. “Yes, that’s what it feels like,” he quipped. “Thank you Academy for this honor and our studio A24 for making a movie like this,” he added. The actor also thanked the film’s director, Darren Aronofsky.
“They put their heart on the whale so that we can see what is in our souls.” It is an honor for me to be named with you in this category.”
“I started in this 30 years ago and things were not easy, but I had something that I did not have well until I stopped having it. Thank you for this review. I wouldn’t have done this without the rest of the team.” Finally, Fraser thanked his children as his manager, along with his partner Joanne Moore.
