• Entertainment Weekly takes a look at this year’s best actor Oscar nominees including Bryan Cranston, noting that his “portrayal of Trumbo in the film directed by Jay Roach could only have come from the performer who wowed TV viewers for five seasons on Breaking Bad and made them laugh years before on Malcolm in the Middle.”
