Cate Blanchett & Eddie Redmayne read mean tweets ahead of Oscars (VIDEO)
The nominees were previous Academy Award winners Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon.
The Danish Girl star Eddie Redmayne and Carol actress Cate Blanchett have joined a host of other A-Listers in shaming their biggest online critics.
The latest instalment in Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s viral sensation also features appearances from ‘Milk’ actor Sean Penn, Patricia Arquette, George Clooney, Emily Blunt, and Bernie Sanders supporter Susan Sarandon.
While many of the stars have hilarious reactions to their online haters, it seems that Blanchett is one person you definitely would not want to mess with after she gives a lethal look in response to her troll.
Blanchett is up for Best Actress at this weekend’s awards, for her critically-acclaimed role in the lesbian love story.
The film received a total of six nominations, including one for co-star Rooney Mara, who is up for Best Supporting Actress.
Redmayne is aiming for an Oscar double after being nominated for Best Actor for The Danish Girl – twelve months after winning the same prize for The Theory of Everything.
The actor faces stiff competition from the likes of Bryan Cranston, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Fassbender.
Neither movie made the shortlist for Best Film – which features The Revenant, Bridge of Spies, Room and Mad Max: Road To Fury on its list of nominees.
Other nominees included Sam Smith and Lady Gaga – who were both nominated for Best Original Song.
his year’s awards are shaping up to be the most controversial yet, after a number of stars announced their decision to boycott the ceremony due to a lack of diversity in nominees.
The boycott comes after it was revealed that none of the nominees for best actor, best actress, best supporting actor or best supporting actress are performers of colour for the second year in a row.
