Actor Timothée Chalamet has had a big year, due to his supporting role in the Greta Gerwig-directed film Lady Bird, and more importantly, because of his lead role in Call Me by Your Name, a coming-of-age drama set in Italy, that follows a blossoming romantic relationship between Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer).
The role allowed him to secure several nominations, including a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama, and more recently, a win for Best Actor at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA). Call Me by Your Name also won Best Picture at LAFCA.
On Saturday, during the LAFCA Awards, Chalamet gave an inspirational acceptance speech where he expressed a major interest in working with directors Christopher Nolan or Guillermo del Toro. “I’m getting people saying keep working on these kind of projects, keep working on things with integrity that are more independently oriented, and certainly if it was a Christopher Nolan opportunity or was a Guillermo—hey give me a call if you want to work together!” he said to the laughing audience, adding, “I’m totally serious about that."
In the past, Chalamet appeared in Homeland, and in Nolan's 2014 movie Interstellar. He's also starred in the autobiographical play Prodigal Son. Call Me by Your Name earned three Golden Globes nominations in total, including Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture.
