Oscar 2014: Tom Hardy–Best Actor (Locke) by L.A. Film Critics Association

locke_4_hardyPeer Support: Tom Hardy’s Locke has not figured prominently in awards season. But the handsome British actor got a boost when the L.A. Film Critics Association (LAFCA) named him best actor in early December.

Brad Pitt hosted a special screening at CAA over the holidays.  Pitt asked the Academy-laden audience to imagine the pitch, “We’re going to follow one guy in a car driving down a monotonous English motorway,” while gushingly calling Hardy’s performance “master class.”

Tom Hardy never has worked with Pitt, but Locke director Steven Knight is scripting the sequel to Pitt’s zombie franchise World War Z.
