Steve Carell borrowed Nicole Kidman's nose from The Hours for his role in Foxcatcher.
Oscar loves it when actors play real-life characters. Like Daniel-Day Lewis as Lincoln.
Nicole Kidman played a famous biographical character and she wore a fake nose. That Oscar nomination was in the bag.
As for Carell...not only does the comic performer deliver a memorable dramatic performance as the manipulative millionaire, John du Pont, while wearing a fake nose...he seems to deliver the performance as actor Barry Newman playing the creepy, patriotic member of America's wealthy du Pont family.
For Foxcatcher, I believe Steve Carell will win an Oscar nomination for playing the morally corrupt millionaire. His performance is compelling. He gives you all the ingredients the Academy loves, mixed with talent. He'll win a nomination. By a nose.
