'Logan' Producer Thinks Stewart Deserves An Oscar
Provided By - Vidible on June 20, 2018
Hutch Parker, the producer of 'Logan', believes Patrick Stewart is long overdue for recognition from the Oscars. Stewart won rave reviews for his last performance as Charles Xavier in 2017's 'Logan.' Traditionally, the Academy does not nominate comic book adaptations in the more “prestigious” categories like Best Picture and Best Director. Parker talked with THR about Stewart’s odds for a nomination for 'Logan.' The producer said that while 'Logan' is an R-rated comic book movie, Stewart's performance is so mesmerizing that it transcends genres. Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight won him a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting actor.
