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?!
