Re: Dr. Strange
Alec Guinness and Ian Mckellen were both nominated for Oscars for Star Wars and LotR respectively. I won't dignify Harry Potter or the modern Star Wars trilogy by claiming they are in the same league.
I think if we continue with this awful bloody stigma that "genre" films have, they will never have a chance at winning Oscars or starring the "mesmerizing" actors. Not that I need them to do either. I just think many of them deserve a little more respect than a lot of people give them. Namely DDL.
