For his performance in “Avengers: Endgame,” Robert Downey Jr. said thank you, but no thanks to an Oscar nomination campaign.
This week, Downey, who plays Tony Stark / Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, talked about the film with Howard Stern. Stern, who said he loved “Endgame,” suggested for his performance that Downey should be rewarded.
“They’re turning their nose [ up ] at it because it’s a superhero movie,” Stern said of voters from the Academy. “It’s an excellent performance. It’s a totally believable character.”
Downey responded, “I’m so glad you brought this up because there was some talk about [an Oscar campaign for his work]. And I said, ‘Let’s not.'”
Disney unveiled its 2019 For Your Consideration website earlier this month and one of the films advertised in its campaign for Oscar accolades is the record-breaking “Avengers: Endgame.”
There is no bid for best actor for Downey, while director Jon Favreau of “Iron Man” said he’s in favor of it.
“For sure, he’s got my vote,” Favreau said to Variety.”I think he was able to discover and explore dimensions of the character over the course of many, many films, which is a bit of its own category. But I must say that if you look at how it started and how it finished in his performances between the first and ‘ Endgame, ‘ there was a really reflective arc to the character, both in his performance and in how all the filmmakers contributed to that character.
