This may be the year that Jeff Bridges finally wins his Oscar. The talented actor gives an amazing performance in the drama, Crazy Heart and has already received various critic awards, as well as a Golden Globe nomination. We’ve got the trailer for the film that features Bridges as a washed up country singer named Bad Blake, and Maggie Gyllenhaal as the reporter trying to save him.
Bad Blake is a broken-down country music singer who drinks too much, and has had more marriages than he can count. When his world comes crashing down he gets help from an unlikely source, a journalist named Jean (Gyllenhaal). She wants to write a story that uncovers the real man behind the musician. As Bad recounts his past, he learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man’s crazy heart.
Like many people, Crazy Heart completely slipped under my radar. It’s a small film with a talented cast, and features some truly iconic performances like the one given by Bridges. He is an amazing actor, and it’s time for him to get his Oscar. The man’s been nominated four times already, obviously he deserves one.
