Fassbender may have been undone by his natural gift

That was a super-brave performance but ... perhaps it inspired people to fantasize, and not actually vote

Irish actor Michael Fassbender, who was nominated for Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe awards, may have had his Oscar hopes dashed by his god-given gift, and not his acting.

Fassbender’s
highly-praised up-front and revealing performance in Shame may have cost him an Oscar nomination because the voters may have been distracted by his impressive anatomical make-up.

At the Golden Globe’s George Clooney revealed to the world that the Kerry actor could play golf without the need for traditional clubs.

An influential academy voter told the LA Times: "He's a guy who's unfamiliar to a lot of people and did a movie that's really intimate. That was a super-brave performance but ... perhaps it inspired people to fantasize, and not actually vote."
