Emma Thompson opened up about campaigning for the Oscars made her get seriously ill; Details!

Dame Emma Thompson is an actress and screenwriter. She is termed the finest actress of her generation. She has received many accolades throughout her career spanning over four decades, such as two Academy Awards, three BAFTA Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and an Emmy Award. In 2018, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II for services to drama. She was nominated for the Academy Awards five times. Also, she earned two Oscars, the first in 1993 for 'Howards End' and the second in 1996 for 'Sense and Sensibility.'


Check out what the actress Emma Thompson said about campaigning for the Oscars:-

Recently, actress Emma Thompson spoke about campaigning to win an Academy Award and how it ended her "seriously ill."

She said, "Both times I had to do the Oscars, I got seriously ill. I found the pressure and glare of it too much. It's astonishing. And then afterwards, you want to lie down in a dark room. You think, 'Please don't ask me any questions or make me talk about myself.' I quickly developed a sort of allergy to that part of the job." In December 2022, actor James McAvoy said that campaigning for an Oscar "felt cheap" and refused to do so to land a nomination for his work on 'Atonement.'

She also said, "I didn't want to play that part. I'll push the film. I'll try and get bums on seats. But the campaign, I felt... I felt cheap."

McAvoy didn't gain authorization for acting, but Atonement' has bagged 7 nominations at the Academy Awards, including Stylish Picture and Supporting Actress for Saoirse Ronan. The Joe Wright-directed movie won an Oscar for Stylish Original Score, reported Deadline.

Although McAvoy would not campaign for himself, he's further than happy to do it for his fellow stars, who led Forest Whitaker to get a nod for his work on The Last King of Scotland.
