rdj deserved that nomination and i am so goddamn pissed.
tony went thru so many hoops and leaps and bounds and ups and downs throughout the ungodly emotional rollercoaster that is endgame and he portrayed them all excellently
this was a performance born out of 10 YEARS of playing a character he knew in his bones by the end
tony’s death was something that had to be NEGOTIATED because rdj didnt know if he could bring it in himself to reshoot the scene all over again JUST SO WE COULD GET THE NOW FOREVER IMMORTALIZED “I AM IRON MAN”
he was broken, he was vindictive, he was funny, he was kind, he was dying to his last breath, he was a good caring loving father, he was in tears of joy, he was frightful, he was brave, he was heroic, he was at peace, he was suave, he was TONY FREAKIN IRON MAN STARK in all of his glory all in one movie
he played the character on so many fucking levels and i just-
i’m not the type of person to get hung up on oscar snubs, but rdj’s farewell performance as tony stark not even being ACKNOWLEDGED is a goddamn travesty
