Justin Timberlake wants a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination
Justin Timberlake has started a campaign to land himself a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role in "The Social Network," reports NY Post.
A source close to Timberlake, 29,said, "He's hell-bent on getting a nomination this year even though he has tough competition from his co-star Andrew Garfield.
"Sony is footing the bill for advertising the awards campaign, but Justin is also doing things his own way, including attending Academy screenings on his own and privately reaching out to award winners and Academy darlings Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey for campaigning advice."
Timberlake's reps declined to comment, but another source confirmed, "He's doing everything to support 'Social Network.' "
