Joel Edgerton Shirtless, Underwear, Awards

Joel Edgerton Shirtless, Underwear, Awards. We are updating this post, which we wrote back in 2015, to note that our imaginary Aussie beau Joel Edgerton has gotten recognition for his directorial efforts. Specifically, he was nominated for his 2015 movie The Gift by the Directors Guild of America Awards for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in First-Time Feature Film. His second film, the 2018 movie Boy Erased, also earned him a directing nomination but this time he was recognized nommed at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA).

Now, he may not have won his nominations but there is no doubt that Joel is a solid film maker. Proof of this is the fact that the movies he directed are well-reviewed by critics. The Gift has an impressive fresh rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes while Boy Erased has an 80% fresh rating.

On other fronts, he’s won 23 awards as an actor and a screenwriter. Some of his wins come from AACTA, Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards, the Hollywood Film Awards, and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Joel Edgerton Shirtless, Underwear, Gay or Girlfriend (6 August 2015). What do Angelina Jolie and Joel Edgerton have in common? Well, with the release of Joel’s directorial debut, The Gift, you can say that both Hollywood stars belong to that small group of actors who are also directors. Joel talks about his directorial experience in this interview with Entertainment Weekly:

EW: How was your experience directing yourself?
I was a very, very obedient actor. I loved working with myself. To be very honest, though, the trickiest days on set [were when I was] wearing two hats, but I have the luxury of having a brother [Nash Edgerton] who’s a very accomplished director. The arrangement I had from the onset from both the actors and the production was that on the days that I was doing double duty, my brother would be there as an outside eye. One, because I trust him, and two, for practical reasons. When you’re moving so quickly on a small budget, there’s not a lot of time to break the momentum by coming back behind the monitor and checking your own work. So my brother, who in many ways is just an extension of myself, he and I could look at each other and just with a look could agree to move on, or that we needed another take.

That made things easier. It’s definitely the hardest I’ve worked my brain in the last number of years and therefore the biggest challenge I’ve had in a long time, but I was the happiest I’ve been in a very long time. I love being an actor but there tends to be a lot of downtime and I have a brain that goes a bit crazy if I’ve got nothing to do. Acting, as wonderful as an experience as it is, and as privileged as I am to be able to do that, it tends to be a thing where it makes you feel like you’ve done something great for an hour of the day, or five minutes here and there. You’ll have moments between action and cut and you’re like, ‘Wow, that day was worthwhile, that made my week.’ There was something about biting off the responsibility of making the movie. I realized how much stamina is involved in filmmaking on a cerebral level and how switched on you have to be and how communicative. I really enjoyed that part of the process.

The Gift, is coming out this weekend. It might become the surprise hit of Summer 2015 because its been getting great reviews from critics. So far, its Rotten Tomatoes average rating is sitting at a very high 94% (with 17 reviews). If this trend continues, Joel might turn out to be a better director than Jolie (who’s Rotten Tomato scores are middling).
