Timothée Chalamet has captured the hearts of moviegoers since he broke out in a big way in 2017 with prominent roles in Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird, and Hostiles. He followed up that stellar year with a critically acclaimed role in Beautiful Boy, which snagged him a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. That's the end of the road for him this awards season, really: He didn't receive an Academy Award nomination despite early buzz for his film.
Chalamet didn't win the SAG––he lost to Mahershala Ali, who looks poised to win his second Academy Award for Green Book––but he made headlines in a different way.
Chalamet was photographed reading something––it might have been a brochure––while the rest of his fellow actors and colleagues were gazing up at the stage.
The photograph prompted Entertainment Weekly to wonder what the actor could have been so absorbed by during the awards ceremony.
