Movie buffs are familiar with only stars and filmmakers. There are many other crafts, which get less recognition. For an actor or a technician, winning an Oscar is a life time dream. After five Oscar nominations, Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar last year for his outstanding performance in "The Revenant". It was a sensational news for cine goers that year.
Do you know one man was nominated for 21 times and was described as the most unlucky fellow? But, he is no more an inauspicious, as he finally took home the Academy Award.
He is none other than the veteran sound mixer Kevin O’Connell who’s been nominated an astonishing 21 times, with his first nod coming for Terms of Endearment in 1984.
At last, O’Connell’s getting the last laugh: Gentleman finally won an Oscar, for his mixing work on Hacksaw Ridge. Onstage, he dedicated the win to his late mother.
