Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role – Austin Butler
The life of American music icon Elvis Presley, from his childhood to becoming a rock and movie star in the 1950s while maintaining a complex relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
Elvis is unbelievably good. Granted, I’m not a hard sell. I grew up in the South and have always loved Elvis Presley. The Director Baz Luhrmann is one of my favorites. I love his visual style and storytelling. I wish they would have spent a bit more time on how the church influenced his music. Austin Butler was phenomenal. At times, I had to keep reminding myself that is not the real Elvis on screen. I can’t wait to see what Austin Butler does next.
