Veteran actor Gary Oldman won an Academy Award as best actor — along with a Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award and a SAG Award, among other accolades — for his uncanny portrayal of Winston Churchill during his early days as Prime Minister of Great Britain, which saw Nazi Germany’s imposing forces sweeping across Western Europe. Nominated as well for best picture at the Oscars, Joe Wright’s 2017 war drama also features Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Stephen Dillane and Ronald Pickup.
