Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a Golden Globe nominee? While most of us can only dream of being recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Brendan Fraser has experienced it firsthand. In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Fraser opened up about his experience with the Golden Globes, his 2018 GQ interview, and why he chose not to attend this year’s ceremony.
In his 2018 GQ interview, Fraser revealed an alleged assault from former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk, at a 2003 luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Berk later disputed Fraser’s allegations. During his interview with Howard Stern, Fraser said that this year’s winner, Austin Butler, deserved the award for his performance in “Elvis” and that winning the Golden Globe would not be meaningful to him.
Fraser continued to say that he did not want other actors to join him in not attending the Golden Globes and that it would be a leap of faith for anyone who did. He also expressed that the HFPA’s decision to put Zelenskyy front and center during the broadcast was something he could get behind and support.
When asked about his Academy Award nomination for his performance in “The Whale,” Fraser expressed that he was honored by the recognition.
