Captain Phillips Oscar Nominee Barkhad Abdi Might Be The Captain, But You Wouldn't Know That Based On His Bank Account!

We think this guy is worth a million bucks! He'll always be our captain now and forever!

Barkhad Abdi, who was driving a limo before getting cast in Captain Phillips, got paid a mere $65,000 for his role as Muse the pirate, a payment which was given to him two years ago and which he has since spent.

Come on, he deserves more booty then that! Y'arr he got nominated for an Oscarrr!

In fact, after he finished filming, he went back to Minneapolis where he worked at a mobile phone store before moving out to El Lay for awards season!

While he was attending events he received a per diem, used a town car only for publicity events, and even the clothes he wore were loaners.

Perhaps the fact that people are finding out about his financial situation will force Sony to give him a huge financial bonus. He does deserve it after all!

He also just got cast in the movie The Place That Hits The Sun, so we're hoping he hits his stride and doesn't turn to actual piracy!

Filed under: OscarsGIFs

Ground control to Major WIN!

Gravity took home its fifth Oscar of the night for Best Editing!

Mark Sanger took the mic and gave his acceptance speech but poor Alfonso Cuarón got cut off!

Oh noes!

But maybe he'll be back up on stage for Best Director??

If this winning streak that Gravity has been on continues, we think he'll get to give his thanks!

Mark and Alfonso beat out American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years a Slave in the category.

Congratz, guys!

12 Years A Slave Takes Top Honors At The BAFTAs With Best Film Win!

Filed under: BAFTA Awards

12 years a slave baftas win

Now THIS is a BIG win!

It might always be nice to be nominated, but it's even better to win!

And the cast and crew involved in 12 Years a Slave is enjoying a major win as they were awarded Best Film at the BAFTA Awards.

The film beat out other top-notch films including American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Gravity, and Philomena.

We're super happy this film is being so well-received by audiences and critics. But now we're all wondering if this means it has a lock on the Oscar!

Barkhad Abdi Brings A Style Misstep For His First Mate To Fix At The 2014 BAFTAs!

bafta awards 2014 barkhad adi red carpet

First mate, do your job!

Barkhad Abdi might be the captain, but he needs someone to fix his tie!

The Captain Phillips star walked the BAFTAs red carpet in a suit that looked pretty spectacular except for that oddly crooked bow tie!

The rest of his suit fits him perfectly, and his date for the night is rocking her simply chic nude and black dress that shows off what she's working with!

His style would've been a grand slam if only his lovely first mate had straightened that tie out! We're sure Gilligan would've done it for his captain!

P.S. Congrats! Barkhad won Best Supporting Actor! A well deserved (albeit surprising) feat, cap'n!

barkhad abdi wins best supporting actor

Spoiler Alert!!

Michael Fassbender, move aside! Bradley Cooper, you can have a seat. Jared Leto… well, for some reason you weren't nominated, so no worries for you.

Captain Philips actor Barkhad Abdi proves he IS the captain now as he swiped the best supporting actor BAFTA away from Fassy!!

What a surprise! But so AH-MAZE for Barkhad!!!

Major congrats to him!!

It's another award for Jared Leto!

This guy is just cleaning up this awards season! But is he a lock to win an Oscar??

The other actors nominated (who picked the wrong year to be in a supporting role) included Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips, Daniel Brühl for Rush, Michael Fassbender for 12 Years A Slave and the late James Gandolfini for his role in Enough Said.

Congratz, Jared!!!
