Albert Finney has been nominated for Academy Awards at every stage of his long and steady career. Originally known for being a sex symbol, the classically trained actor re-established himself as a serious performer when he transformed himself for the titular role for “Scrooge” in 1970. His career reached new heights at the turn of the Millennium, and led to roles in major studio films like “Erin Brockovich” and “Big Fish,” plus major roles in the Jason Bourne franchise with Matt Damon.
