Gender-fluid actor nominated for Oscar

Mon 12 Dec 2016 In: International News View at Wayback View at NDHA

Actor Kelly Mantle has become the first performer to ever be accepted for consideration for both the Best Supporting Actress and the Best Supporting Actor categories of the Oscars. Mantle, who acts in a small indie film, Confessions of a Womaniser, which is considered a long shot for an Oscar, is known for appearing as a contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race. It is not known yet whether Mantle will get through to the nominations list, for which he can be on only one category. Confessions of a Womanizer tells the story of the arrogant, fraternising man who strikes up a friendship with Ginger (Mantle), a transgender prostitute.
