Dev Patel earns Oscar nomination for ‘Lion’

Indian-origin British actor Dev Patel has received an Oscar nomination for his acting in ‘Lion’, which is set in India and Australia. He will be vying for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the 89th Academy Awards, to be held on February 26. Other nominees are Mahershala Ali (‘Moonlight’), Jeff Bridges (‘Hell or High Water’) and Michael Shannon (‘Nocturnal Animals’).


Patel, who lost the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role award to Aaron Taylor-Johnson at the 74th Golden Globes, had told IANS earlier: “I would be lying if I say that awards are not amazing. Awards can really change someone’s career. You get recognition. You might get scripts that you didn’t get earlier. But I never took up a project thinking about a golden statue.”
