Oscar Actors: Chalamet, Timothee–Best Actor Nominee, Call Me By Your Name

Timothee Chalamet must be the discovery of the year as far as acting is concerned, turning in a breakthrough Oscar-caliber performance.

Reflecting  on the success of Call Me By Your Name, which was named Best Film by the Los Angeles Film Critics, after earning a SAG Best Actor nomination, he said: “It was the opportunity to play a role that complex at a young age. It was the opportunity to work with Luca Guadagnino, the opportunity to work with Armie [Hammer] and the challenge of telling the story of a book that is really special to people.”

Chalamet said he had never expected the film to be such a critical or commercial success.
