Hollywood loves a comeback and Best Actor frontrunner Brendan Fraser is proof of this.
The actor is widely expected to be nominated as Best Actor for his performance in ‘The Whale’ but Brendan says he will not attend the ceremony.
In a cover story for GQ, Brendan shares, “I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for them.” and sternly added that he will not participate in the awards show.

This is because of his alleged sexual assault experience from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that is behind the Golden Globes.
As reported by GQ in 2018, Fraser opened up about HFPA Former President Philip Berk groping and assaulting him in 2003, allegations that Berk has denied.
Following the article being published, Brendan has maintained that the HFPA never apologized to him. However, according to GQ whom the HFPA reportedly talked to, Berk has written and sent an apology letter to Brendan in 2018 but did not admit to doing any wrong.
‘The Whale’ star now remains that his mother did not raise a hypocrite and he will therefore keep his decision of not attending the ceremony, regardless if he truly gets the Best Actor nomination.
Brendan’s latest movie, ‘The Whale’ with ‘Stranger Things’ star Sadie Sink and directed by Darren Aronofsky will hit the theatres in December 9.
