He shares the category with fellow nominees Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelowo and Eddie Redmayne.
Jake released a short statement after hearing about the nomination:
Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this recognition. It was my job to fit into the skin of this ridiculously original person Dan Gilroy had written on the page, and I loved every ounce of this opportunity. I’m incredibly grateful to Dan and the fantastic team on Nightcrawler.
