Claire tipped to crown her Emmy with an Os­car

Daily Express - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Gillian Craw­ley

AC­TRESS Claire Foy and Ryan Gosling are over the moon about their lat­est film First Man, which is al­ready be­ing tipped as a fron­trun­ner for next year’s Os­cars.

The Crown star, 34, who last month got an Emmy for her por­trayal of the young Queen El­iz­a­beth II in the Net­flix saga, looked stun­ning in a mus­tard yel­low dress on the red car­pet at the film’s US pre­miere in Washington DC on Thurs­day.

Gosling, 37, who re­ceived an Os­car nom­i­na­tion for La La Land in 2016, plays Neil Arm­strong, the first man to walk on the moon, and Foy is his wife Janet.

The film tells of Arm­strong’s am­bi­tion to be part of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon land­ing mis­sion and how it put pres­sure on their mar­riage.

There is al­ready talk of a nom­i­na­tion for best supporting ac­tress for Foy. She must be hop­ing for bet­ter luck at the Os­cars par­ties than she got af­ter the Emmy Awards.

Ap­pear­ing on The Tonight Show Star­ring Jimmy Fal­lon on Tues­day she re­vealed the se­cu­rity staff at one party wouldn’t let her in even though she was clutch­ing her award.

Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness had to ex­plain who she was. She said: “I was mor­ti­fied.

“Jonathan was my knight in a white suit.” First Man opens in the UK on Fri­day.
