Mortensen planned Oscars soccer tribute

The Lord of the Rings star was nominated in the Best Actor category at the prestigious Oscars ceremony, for his role in Eastern Promises.

He lost out on the night to Daniel Day-Lewis for his role in There Will Be Blood, and Mortensen admits he had another reason to be upset at the snub – because he wanted to profess his love for Argentinian club San Lorenzo in his acceptance speech.

Mortensen says, “I had the club’s flag folded up and tucked inside my vest. If I’d won I was going to take it out during the speech.”
