Richard E Grant News
Can You Ever Forgive Me star Richard E Grant said he was ‘living the dream’ as he joined the stars gathering for the annual Oscars Nominees’ Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, Amy Adams, Regina King and Rachel Weisz were just some of the A-list faces in attendance.
Richard tweeted delightedly “You’ll understand why I am blurred and enduring ‘Smiling-rictus’ syndrome after meeting all these folk at the Academy Awards Nominees lunch today!!!” and posted a number of selfies where he was pressing the flesh with the Hollywood great and good.
He followed up by saying “This is now getting beyond ‘pinch yourself’ – more like ‘punch yourself ’ SwaziGuy!!!! Living the dream.”
Richard is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his performance in literary comedy Can You Ever Forgive Me?
He plays flamboyant drug dealer Jack Hock, who is drawn into a plot to forge and sell letters purportedly written by famous authors but in fact ghosted by washed-up writer Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy.)
The film, based on the true exploits of Lee Israel, has been nominated for dozens of awards and currently holds a 98% positive review status on Rotten Tomatoes. The real Jack Hock was according to Israel only a minor figure in her forgery scam.
This year’s Academy Award ceremony – The 91st – will take place on February 24th. Unusually, the show will not rely on one presenter, instead employing a rotating cast of comperes including British star Daniel Craig

Richard E Grant Interview
Congratulations! This is a big morning for you.
Thank you. Unbelievable. I’m absolutely astonished. I’m levitating! I never thought anything like this would happen in my life. I’m absolutely amazed. I cannot hide it.
You’ve had a good awards season so far, right?
Yes. It’s the first time I’ve ever been in the season, if you like, but I never thought this would happen.
Tell me more about how you’re feeling right now. How did you hear about it?
I’m in the Cotswolds in the countryside in England. I was having lunch with my wife and got a call from my agent in London. It was quite a noisy restaurant, so I just heard her shouting and people in her office shouting “congratulations” at the same time. I was discombobulated, I didn’t know what was going on. And then they said, “Oh, you’ve been nominated for a Golden Globe.” My phone has not stopped pinging and messaging and tweeting and Instagramming since that call. It’s been an avalanche of good news, for which I’m very grateful and astonished.
There was very little in the memoir that Lee Israel wrote, but Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty’s script and Marielle Heller’s direction made it very, very clear. They filled in lots of the background of him. In the beginning he’s dying of AIDS, so that meant that all the scenes and the joie de vivre that he brought to trying to live his life in the day, for the day, on the day, was always undercut by the sense that, for him, it might be his last.
I think it’s a good thing that you only find out at the end that that’s what’s happening to him, so you don’t judge somebody. I have a friend who died recently who made a point of not telling anybody, so that he didn’t become stigmatized by all of his, you know, as somebody who’s dying. So I thought that was a good handle or key into how to play Jack.
Jack and Lee have this funny, oddball chemistry. They feel like an odd couple.
Yes. They are, exactly. I drew great inspiration from the ’70s movie Midnight Cowboy, with Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman that had this … they’re two people from the wrong side of the tracks who form this platonic, co-dependent relationship and are nearly destitute in one of the richest cities and densely populated places on the planet. The friendships that form in that circumstance, where it’s not the glossy version of Manhattan. That made it interesting and gave it great texture. You go through all the stages of the friendship from the loyalty to the final betrayal and then the reconciliation, which is very poignant because they both know that he’s dying but they don’t actually talk about it in so many words.
I also loved that the reconciliation scene happened in Julius’. It’s one of my favorite places in New York.
Yeah. And the oldest gay bar in New York, too. That was very generous of them to allow us to shoot there, considering these two people are not the most morally upright, clean-living people. The fact that no judgment on that, fair dues to them for allowing it to shoot there.
I felt like these two wouldn’t be at Stonewall, or somewhere that felt more trendy. Julius’ was like the perfect place.
Yeah. I absolutely agree.
