Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood will attend the Oscars, it has been confirmed.
Greenwood’s Phantom Thread score was nominated for Best Original Score, his first ever nomination at the ceremony. After much speculation as to whether or not he will show up on March 4th, it has now been confirmed The Phantom Thread director Paul Thomas Anderson, who told Associated Press: “He’s coming! I have confirmation!”
Recently, Greenwood discussed his possible attendance on the Adam Buxton podcast. “My wife thinks it’s quite ridiculous,” he said. “But then I realised I was quite pleased with myself at the idea of not going, and I think it’s always good to resist that kind of urge, that sort of smirk. So maybe do the opposite to that impulse…. [But] no one wants to see sweaty version of me, shambling around, looking embarrassed. Amusing Paul, I think, is the main goal. Whatever entertains him.”
