Thor: Love and Thunder: Every Oscar Winner Starring in the Film



Thor: Love and Thunder: All Oscar Winners in the Film

Ever since the MCU blew up back in 2008 and has only gotten bigger and bolder with each passing year, there has been a debate about whether or not Marvel movies are “true cinema.” In recent years, the juggernaut franchise has come under fire by some of Hollywood’s most elite and notorious directors about how the movies and TV shows resemble theme park rides and are meant to be a 2-hour thrill ride instead of art to be appreciated. Fans and admirers of the franchise know that these arguments hold no weight, and luckily so do Hollywood’s elite actors and actresses.

Over the past decade and a half, the MCU has featured dozens of actors and actresses that have taken home the entertainment business’ top prize — an Oscar. Everybody who has ever won the award knows how hard it is to achieve, and yet the MCU has managed to bring the best of the best in almost every project they make. That being said, there is one franchise in the MCU that seems to attract Oscar winners more than most, and that’s Thor

. From Anthony Hopkins playing Odin to Cate Blanchett playing Hela, the God of Thunder has housed some of Hollywood’s greatest of all time — and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder is no different.

What more needs to be said? The actor probably best known for his stint as Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy is finally giving superhero movies another go, except this time he’s going to be the villain. Stepping outside his superhero roles, Christian Bale’s resume as an actor is second to none, and the Academy has noticed it. During the 2010s, Bale couldn’t miss as he churned out hit after hit and gave genuinely memorable performances, which amounted to four Oscar nominations.

Bale was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2011 and 2016 for the movies The Fighter and The Big Short, while being nominated for Best Actor in 2014 and 2019 for American Hustle and Vice. While being nominated four times, Bale has only taken home the trophy once, thanks to his performance in The Fighter.

She’s back — and with a brand-new look! Natalie Portman is no stranger to the Thor franchise since she played Jane Foster in the first film back in 2011 and the sequel in 2013, but she hasn’t been seen in the MCU since (except for a brief clip in Endgame, which Marvel admitted was unused footage from the prior Thor films). Nevertheless, she needs to be mentioned on this list as she has also taken home the top prize in Hollywood.

Portman was nominated in 2005 for Best Supporting Actress in the film Closer but ultimately lost out on the award. She was again nominated in 2011 and 2016, both times for Best Actress, and she managed to pull off the win in 2011 thanks to her role in Black Swan, but couldn’t duplicate the feat in 2016 despite her memorable performance in Jackie.
