Brendan Fraser

won the award for best actor

at the

Critic's Choice Awards


The Whale

(The Whale) and his speech was the most exciting delivery.

In the consecration film, the actor plays an obese teacher who does not stop eating because he suffers from a deep depression.

Fraser's intervention was the most moving moment of the night and he was noticed on the networks with wholesale congratulations and lines of redemption for an actor who seemed forgotten.

As soon as he heard his name as the winner and after the obligatory hugs, Fraser took the stage, gave a warning about the critics (

"there are only five critics in America, the rest are asleep"

) and was more than satisfied that they chose him. .

It happened in Los Angeles during the

28th edition

of the Critic's Choice Awards.

The 54-year-old actor thanked and praised his castmates.

He named

Hong Chau


Sadie Sink

and, of course, praised director

Darren Aronofsky

's dedication .

Visibly moved, he said: "

I was in the desert

and I probably should have left a trail of breadcrumbs, but you found me," he said, looking at Aronofsky.

Why the metaphor?

Because the director put the actor from

The Mummy

in the foreground after years of having lost substance in projects without the slightest artistic repercussion.

"You just showed me where to go to get to where I needed to be," he told Aronofsky, famous since 

The Black Swan


Fraser, who is now moving up ten squares in the competition to win an Oscar, added a reflection about the movie

The Whale

It's about finding the light in a dark place

and I'm so lucky to have worked with such an amazing set of people."

He continued visibly emotional and with a sober self-help message: "If you're like Charlie, who I played in this movie, you struggle with obesity or just feel like you're in a dark sea, I want you to know that if you too can have the strength to stand up and go to the light,

really good things will happen


Highlighted as the most stellar figure of the installment, the actor was speechless: "This is more than can be said" and emphasized that the film, more than a film, is an act of faith:

"We face this work as if it was the first and the last time

we had the opportunity to do this kind of thing.

I think it can help do a lot of good."

Ever since

) made its way into festivals -the premiere was at the Venice Mostra-, there is talk of Fraser and a kind of "great comeback".

Of course, the actor was not retired by any means, just that the repercussions of Aronofsky's latest film are "fattening" the aspirations of the project: these awards, the Critic's Choice Awards, are considered a

prestigious prelude to the Oscar.
