Brendan Fraser has been nominated for an Oscar for his first lead role in a major film for 12 years, in The Whale, SIA refers to foreign media.
Tuesday's best actor nomination caps a comeback for one of Hollywood's former leading men who has admitted he was left "in the wilderness" for a decade.
The Whale has now led film studios and fans to re-evaluate the Mummy and George of the Jungle star's talents.
Fraser plays a reclusive and morbidly obese English professor who wants to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
The returning US-Canadian actor, 54, told media that he hopes the feature will help to "end the bias against those who live with obesity".
