This isn’t about what you want Robert this is about what I want!

I still don't see this as an oscar worthy performance. Sure, it was great, but it was also pretty atypical for him as tony stark. And as for everyone saying "people were hyperventilating after he died" well clearly its because this character that many people grew up with just died. He could've completely phoned in his performance and his death would've still given that response.

Smart man. That was great performance but not an Oscar worthy one. Not even close.

Robert Downey Jr. should absolutely be nominated for an Oscar for Avengers: Endgame. Tony Stark goes from arrogant prince to culture hero to universal savior. Along the way he faces twisted brother-mirrors (Vanko/Hammer/Killian) and ogre fathers (Stane/Fury/Thanos); he meets, reckons with, is betrayed/abandoned by, and reconciles with his symbolic older brother/father’s favored son (Cap); he realizes that the source of his power is within himself and not within his weapon (Iron Man Three); he becomes a paranoid king who gives birth to a monster (Ultron); he becomes a benevolent, boon-bestowing father figure (Spider-Man: Homecoming); he confronts a tyrant god and completes an impossible task, stealing the tyrant god’s power and sacrificing himself, literally for the entire universe, in a moment of heroic apotheosis so powerful it left audiences in almost every culture on planet earth weeping in their cinemas and grossed more money than any movie in history. He has been Oedipus/Hamlet; he has been Minos, Theseus, and Daedalus; he has been Odysseus and Athena; he has been Prometheus/Christ. He constantly battles within himself to reconcile the legacy of his forbears with his moral experience of the world. He learns over and over again the same lesson - that the nature of the heroic act is sacrificial, and that the thing the hero must sacrifice is ultimately his ego. All of this unfolded across eleven years and ten films, six of which grossed over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. I know of no other story in cinema with such mythic sweep and cultural impact. And, somehow, Downey was BETTER EVERY TIME. He never seemed to be there just for the paycheck, he never seemed to resent the role. He went deeper into the role every time he played it.

Give the man an Oscar (not that he shouldn’t be satisfied with global acclaim and hundreds of millions of dollars)

@CaptainHands - I almost never sign in to comment, so it won't really bother me. Other people can have their opinions. This is mine.

Well comic books will be represented for sure whether he is nominated or not
