NEW YORK - Singer-actor Justin Timberlake is reportedly planning to aggressively campaign for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role in the film “The Social Network”.
“He’s hell-bent on getting a nomination this year even though he has tough competition from his co-star Andrew Garfield,” nypost.com quoted a source as saying.
“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,” the source added.
However, Timberlake’s representative declined to comment. Another source confirmed: “He’s doing everything to support ‘Social Network.’”
