Wow! What an awards season this has been for us here at Viggo-Works! Our heartiest congratulations to Viggo for being recognized for his wonderful work in Captain Fantastic, by so many prestigious institutions and also by so many of the top notch cinema media outlets. Let's just say ... they know extraordinary talent when they see it. It was fun for all of us to watch him enjoy himself at all of the various ceremonies and festivals. Somewhere beneath those lovely tuxedos there lurks a true party animal. What a ride!

Once again ... Congratulations Viggo! May you enjoy the recognition that you so rightfully deserve for this project and an incredible body of work in cinema.

We are more than eager to see what your next projects will be, either in front of, or behind the camera. Where will you take us next?

And might we be underestimating Best Actor underdog Viggo Mortensen ("Captain Fantastic")? The buzz in that category has revolved around top rivals Denzel Washington ("Fences") and Casey Affleck ("Manchester by the Sea"), but two of the surveyed academy members thought Mortensen stood out the most, including the documentarian, who says, "What's great is he was able to capture both sides of the righteous fanatic."
