Justin Timberlake Wants An Oscar

Although he's only been acting for a brief period of time, Justin Timberlake really wants an Oscar for his role in The Social Network - and he's prepared to work for it with an aggressive campaign!

A source claims:

"He's hell-bent on getting a nomination this year even though he has tough competition from his co-star Andrew Garfield.

Sony is footing the bill for advertising the awards campaign, but Justin is also doing things his own way, including attending Academy screenings on his own and privately reaching out to award winners and Academy darlings Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey for campaigning advice."

Besides Garfield, many believe his biggest competitors are Geoffrey Rush, who plays a speech therapist in The King's Speech and Christian Bale, who plays a boxing trainer in The Fighter.

His reps declined comment on the Oscar campaign, but a source confirmed, "He's doing everything to support Social Network."

Do U think JT could win an Oscar this year?!

    Justin wants an Oscar?
    I want world peace, but that ain't gonna happen either.

    Justin is way too full of himself.

    BA-HUMBUG!!!!! GET OFF UR ASS TIMBERLAKE. THAT ROLE WAS NO BETTER OR WORSE THAN OTHER SUPPORTING ROLES IN THE FLICK. IN FACT, THE WHOLE FLICK WAS REALLY ALL SUPPORTING ROLES. AVERAGE AT BEST. THE GUY WHO PLAYED THE CO-FOUNDER AND FINANCIAL DUDE DID A BETTER JOB THAN JUSTIN. HIS ROLE ACTUALLY EVOLVED OVER THE MOVIE WHEREAS "SEAN PARKER" WAS JUST A STRUNG OUT PARTY BOY COKE ADDICT ALL THE WAY THRU… NOT IMPRESSED AND THE CHARACTER HAS BEEN PLAYED MANY TIMES IN MANY FLICKS. YAAAWN.

    no not at all. He had a minor role, and he wasn't that good. What is he smoking and where can i get it?

    he wants a nod because for once he's watchable?????



  8. 8

    Bad Idea…looks like he wants to BUY it….never works dude….u were good but not Jeffery Rush good



  9. 9

    If any one should be nominated for an Oscar from that movie, it's Andrew Garfield, he's a million times better actor than JT.



  10. 10

    He was good in SN but it's not like it was smashing killer performance



  11. 11

    I have never understood why everyone thinks this guy is attractive?

    Oscars ARE bought and paid for. Proof? That whore Jolie and that scarecrow Julia Roberts both have one.

    I love JT and I think he's a good actor, but the character itself wasn't all that big of a deal, there weren't layers of acting needed to portray a douchebag like that. Sorry, but when Justin takes the bite out of a character that requires him to really act and who lets him show more range, maybe then he'll be deserving of an oscar nomination. For this role in this movie? Naah, sorry, not gonna happen.



  14. 14

    OK so how do they know the other 2 are oscar contenders if the movies haven't even come out yet?



  15. 15

    HAHA funny



  16. 16

    Nope! He should stick to music, and doing cartoon characters' voices! lol



  17. 17

    come on. he was terrible



  18. 18

    Please! Andrew Garfield was 100000 better than him!



  19. 19

    Ugh please no…. his acting is not very good… second-rate at best. I pray he doesn't even get a nomination, because what does that say about the craft? That awards can be bought by some wining and dining and public campaigning by some former Disney kid cum pop star?



  20. 20

    yikesss he was the worst part of that movie…



  21. 21

    Justin Timberlake needs to get his head out of his ass. He is not worthy of an Oscar ESPECIALLY over Andrew Garfield. Garfield was extremely funny, very quick and skilled at delivering his lines and brought depth to his character. Timberlake was just there…..very flat and static. Please, who is he kidding? He needs to stick to making pop songs.



  22. 22

    No. He's is awesome but not so much as an actor.



  23. 23

    He was good, but not Oscarworthy. Saw other actors who deserve it more.



  24. 24

    So is this why the dark-rimmed glasses, an attempt to look more serious & intelligent? Sorry JT: Your performance was jsut a C in the film and you are a much better singer/songwriter/musician than actor!



  25. 25

    Noo Justin JUST NO. Go back to making music!



  26. 26

    I haven't seen the movie so I can't comment on JT's performance but what happened to allowing the work to speak for its self??? The idea of campaigning for an Oscar nomination just seems a bit much to me.

    Uh… The names of Jeffrey Rush and Justin Timberlake shouldn't even be allowed in the same sentence. Jeffrey Rush is an brilliant actor. Justin Timberlake is nothing more than a wannabe.



  28. 28

    Re: Queenmab – I do not find him attractive in the least.



  29. 29

    well why not? It's the only thing in his near 20 years of singing he hasn't done. Besides, he's won everything but an Oscar. If he gets one, then the man has done everything a singer and actor can do. Sold out concerts ? [Check] Open a Recording Label ?[Check] , Start a fragrance and fashion line? [Check] Making Multi Platinum Records? [Check] Wining 2 Emmy's and 6 Grammys? [Check] . Having a successful acting career? [Check] Open 2 Restaurants and a Golf Course? [Check]
    Yep, he's done it all .



  30. 30

    he wants an Oscar for what exacty?
    The Social Network???
    that was a lackluster performance at best……

    NO OSCAR FOR YOU JT!!



  31. 31

    what is so great about this complete and utter douchebag?
    so sick of hearing about him already… he's NOTHING SPECIAL and hasn't contributed much to society but some fad songs in the past. who cares about these overrated arrogant creeps.



  32. 32

    This little man is ONLY good on SNL. He's dramatic acting SUCKS worse than Paris Hiltons pathetic attempt!



  33. 33

    UH?? yeah you finally gave a decent performance after years of shitty acting.



  34. 34

    please tell me this was taken out of context



  35. 35

    AHAHAHAHAHA he must be high … he was so awful i felt sorry for him.. maybe you will win an oscar in 12 decades !!! + he only came out what 20 mins in total he was horrid and if anyone dissevers in award from that movie it should be andrew garfield he was good but then again the movie was dumb so dont even nominate them LOL ..

    ps- justin just go back to NSYNC !!!!

    Re: mrsdestinyhope – He doesn't have a loving family. Not check.

    I have nothing bad to say about The Social Network (I think it deserved the Best Picture) and JT was brilliant. I think he was better than Andrew Garfield. But neither of them were Oscar-worthy. The true star was Jesse Eisenberg. If he doesn't get a Best Actor nomination I may throw things.
