Richard Grant 'Absolutely Overwhelmed' at Oscar Nomination

After he learned that he had been nominated for an Academy Award, actor Richard E Grant stood gleefully celebrating outside the Notting Hill Gate bedsit he first rented when he arrived in London. “I’m absolutely overwhelmed,” Grant said in the video posted to his Twitter account on January 22. “36 years ago I rented this bedsit here, which was one room in Notting Hill Gate, for 30 pounds a week, which was around 50 dollars, and I cannot believe that 36 years later I’m standing here as an almost 62-year-old man having an Oscar nomination. Ha!” Grant was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for the film Can You Ever Forgive Me? Credit: Richard E. Grant via Storyful
