Can Harry Styles Really Get an Oscar Nomination for Acting?
Clayton Davis Three movies into his film career, Harry Styles’ ability as an actor continues to improve with each of his outings. Beginning as a young soldier in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” (2017), he returns to the silver screen with two films this year. In the first, he’s the charming husband to Florence Pugh in “Don’t Worry Darling,” with the press tour that keeps on giving. In the second, he portrays a closeted gay police officer in Michael Grandage’s drama “My Policeman” from Amazon Studios, featuring his strongest turn yet as an actor. But is an Oscar nomination in his future? Singers-turned-actors have had an inconsistent road to the Academy Awards. While there are successes such as Cher (“Moonstruck”) and Jennifer Hudson (“Dreamgirls”), Academy voters sometimes make actors prove themselves for a while to show they’re the real deal. Known as a “pretty boy,” Styles’ celebrity status does present an obstacle to overcome with awards voters.

Harry Styles returns to festival circuit at Toronto International Film Fest after Chris Pine spitgate drama
Harry Styles isn’t letting recent film festival dramas keep him away from the scene as he popped up at Toronto International Film Festival this weekend to promote his upcoming movie My Policeman. It was only last week that the As It Was singer was bizarrely accused of spitting in the lap of his Don’t Worry Darling co-star Chris Pine at Venice Film Festival, thanks to a viral clip that sparked a thousand theories. Pine’s rep rubbished the claims while Harry himself joked about the controversy at a show on his Love On Tour stint. With the spitgate drama now somewhat behind him, the pop star can now focus on promoting his other new movie, My Policeman, which received one of its first screenings at TIFF on Sunday. Harry, 28, attended the film’s press conference alongside co-stars Emma Corrin, Rupert Everett, David Dawson and director Michael Grandage in Ontario. During the event, the former One Direction star opened up about how he got into the mind of playing a repressed gay character. ‘I think he’s very curious,’ Styles said in a clip obtained by Variety. ‘I think he’s someone who is born into a very small world and, if you’re born into that kind of environment, you feel like you know where the edge of the world is. ‘Slowly throughout the story, I think he’s realising that it is a little further away than Brighton.
