Nominated for: Best actor — The Master
On challenging the status quo: "I mean, everything that they teach you when you're a kid about acting is completely f*cking wrong. They tell you to memorize your lines, follow your light, and hit your marks. Those are the three things that you shouldn't do. You should not learn your lines, you should not hit your mark, and you should never follow your light. Find your light — that's my opinion. Everyone else will tell me I'm wrong, but that's my opinion."
