It was truly a big year for Michael. He received critical acclaim for his role as a sex addict in Shame, garnering a Golden Globe nomination, but not the coveted Oscar nomination. He did, however, win the top actor prize at the Venice Film Festival for the role. Michael was also on the big screen in Ridley Scott's Prometheus and Steven Soderbergh's Haywire and as Dr. Jung in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method. Michael's quickly becoming one of Hollywood's go-to guys, and 2013 will see his The Counselor, another Scott piece, hitting theaters. Michael's working on a third collaboration with his Shame director, Steve McQueen, called Twelve Years a Slave. He's much loved by the ladies as well. It seems heartthrob Michael has settled down a bit over the past 12 months, ending a long-term relationship with Zoe Kravitz and later starting things up with his Shame costar Nicole Beharie.
