Jake Gyllenhaal will have another impressive accolade for his resume next month, when he’ll receive the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award at the Hollywood Film Awards. He’s in great company: previous award recipients include Robert De Niro, Geoffrey Rush and Ben Affleck.
It’s been a phenomenal season for Gyllenhaal. The Hollywood Reporter notes that he’s gotten “some of the best accolades of his career” from critics for his work in “Prisoners.”
“We are thrilled to present the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award to Jake Gyllenhaal for his unforgettable performance in Prisoners,” said Carlos de Abreu, the founder of the Hollywood Film Awards, to the Hollywood Reporter. “His is a truly compelling, subtly layered portrayal of a man tasked with the impossible and driven by the demons of his own past. Jake has given a myriad of outstanding performances throughout his career. But his work in this film achieves a new level of complexity, as reflected in the rave reviews the film has received.”
