Did Benedict Cumberbatch win the Oscar for The Power of the Dog?
Cumberbatch didn’t win Best Actor for his portrayal of Phil Burbank. Instead, the award went to Will Smith for his portrayal of Richard Williams in the film King Richard.
As mentioned above, this was the actor’s second nomination. You can catch his appearance in both films on Netflix now The imitation game recently started streaming on the service. I’m sure the talented actor will get another chance to win an Oscar in the future, but it’s unfortunate that he didn’t win this year.
However, Cumberbatch received some awards for his performance from the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, the Houston Film Critics Society, the New York Film Critics, and the San Francisco Bay Area Film Critics Circle.
Aside from Cumberbatch’s loss, the film lost nearly all of its other nominations, earning only one for Best Director.
