Today is a sad, sad day for twinks everywhere, and also for the women (me) who love those twinks. Across the nation, peaches are withering in fruit stands, their fragrant, sticky juice drying into so much dust to blow away in the wind.
Chalamet, my son/future husband, was expected to clinch a Best Actor in a Supporting Role nomination for his role as a person struggling with addiction in Amazon's Beautiful Boy. While the film itself hasn't been an awards season darling, Chalamet undoubtedly has. The actor was nominated for the Golden Globes, BAFTAs, Critic's Choice, Satellite Awards, Dorian Awards and AACTA International Awards. Chalamet also won a Hollywood Film Awards and nabbed a prize at the Palm Spring International Film Festival.
But alas, Chalamet was not selected for the Supporting Actor category at the Oscars. In his pace, Sam Elliot was nominated for playing Bradley Cooper's growling brother in A Star Is Born, for which he was excluded from the Golden Globes. Alongside him are actors whose nominations were everything but guaranteed: Mahershala Ali (Green Book), Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), and Sam Rockwell (Vice).
Last year, Chalamet was nominated in the Best Actor category for his star-making role in Call Me By Your Name, though he did not win. This year...in the immortal words of Nina Bonina Brown: well, it's over.
Timmy, babe, I'm so sorry. Call me if you need a shoulder to cry on...or whatever.
