On Sunday, Brendan Fraser accepted the Oscar Award for best actor for his performance in the movie “The Whale” with tears in his eyes.
He started his address by praising Darren Aronofsky, the director of the movie, for “giving me a creative lifeline.”
Together with Colin Farrell (“The Banshees of Inisherin”), Paul Mescal (“Aftersun”), Austin Butler (“Elvis”), and Bill Nighy (“Living”), Fraser was nominated in the same category.

Fraser referred to his co-star Hong Chau as “only whales can swim at the depth” in a speech that was rife with nautical allusions.

On discussing his 30-year Hollywood career, Fraser claimed there were parts of it “I didn’t appreciate at the time until it ceased.”

He thanked his children and his “best first mate,” partner Jeanne Moore, as he concluded his tearful statement.

Fraser’s win for best actor closes up a good season for him on the awards circuit, where he also took home SAG and Critics Choice Awards for his work in “The Whale.”
