Oscar Winner Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges is considered by many to be one of the most talented but least rewarded actors in Hollywood until now. Tailed by movie lovers for issuing blockbuster roles in favor of deep-seated characters with more soul, this second generation leading man has won over audiences with his wide range and every man quality.
Born December 4, 1949 in Los Angeles California, Jeff made his first screen appearance as an unaccredited infant in 1951. 20 years later, he received his first major success with a leading role in The Last Picture Show for which he received an Academy Award nomination, but the acclaim wouldn’t stop there. This fabulous baker boy was nominated again in 1974, 1984, and again in the year 2000. Unfortunately, he would go home empty-handed each time, but perhaps since his 5th Oscar nomination for his role in Crazy Heart, that best summed up his acting career today.
Bridges plays an underappreciated country singer who gets a second chance and ironic parallel for underrated actor with 40 years in the business. Bridges won his first Golden Globe, his first Screen Actors Guild Award and also his first Oscar for his haunting portrayal of Bad Blake.
It seems safe to say that this latest Oscar win will bring Jeff Bridges into the league of Hollywood elite making him more than a character actor who disappears in the Bohemian roles and with the wait for acclaim finally over, Bridges seems content to make his mark one way or another.
