Recently I viewed the movie "The Fabelmans". I am not a film critic, but it was a very good movie. It was directed by Steven Spielberg and was inspired by his story, of growing up and his interest in movies. It is also nominated for a "Best Picture Oscar" at the upcoming Academy Awards.

More Than One Montana Actor In The Fabelmans

The movie stars Michelle Williams, who is an Oscar nominee for "Best Actress In A Leading Role" for here portrayal of Mitzi Fabelman, this is her fifth Oscar nomination. Michelle Williams was born in Kalispell, Mt. I am not going to give the movie away, but towards the end of the movie there is a cameo from another Montana-born director who appears in the movie as an actor. David Lynch, who was born in Missoula, Mt. This isn't the first time a movie has been nominated for "Best Picture" with more than one actor from Montana.

The Most Famous Montana Born Actor

Probably one of the most famous actors that we have had come out of Montana has been, multiple Oscar winner, Gary Cooper, who was born in Helena, Mt. He won Oscars for "Best Actor In a Leading Role" for the movies High Noon and Sergeant York. He also won an "Honorary Oscar" in 1961.

Not The First Best Picture Nominated Movie With Montana Actors

Seeing a movie that is up for the "Best Picture Oscar" with two actors from Montana in it is exciting. It isn't the first time this has happened though. Brokeback Mountain was nominated for "Best Picture" in 2006. That movie also included Michelle Williams and another Montana-born actor Scott Michael Campbell, who was born in Missoula, Mt.

Root For Montana At The Oscars

When the 95th Annual Academy Awards air on March 12th we will see if The Fabelmans will win for the best picture. If it does we then we can say there is now a movie with more than one Montana-born actor that is the best.
