2016 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Won By Mark Rylance

In his acceptance speech, Mark Rylance salutes Steven Spielberg, calling him “one of the greatest story-tellers of our time”. 

“Unlike some of the leaders we’re being presented with these days, he leads with such love that he’s surrounded by masters in every craft.”

Out of its six nominations, Bridge of Spies wins only 1 Oscar – but an important one: It’s only the second Spielberg-directed film to win an Academy Award for one of its actors – following Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln (2012). Little by little, the Academy recognizes Spielberg’s craft as an actor’s director.

All nominations and wins of Bridge of Spies.

Mark Rylance plays the title role in Steven Spielberg’s The BFG (2016). Christopher Nolan casts Mark Rylance for his World War II film Dunkirk (2017).
