When E! News interviewed Holden and Leland Fraser about their father, Brendan Fraser (The Whalesons), both boys could not stop gushing over him after attending the Oscars with him on March 12, 2023.
We recommend bringing Kleenex to this heartfelt family get-together.
Holden, who is eighteen, and Leland, who is sixteen, are two closest friends of Brendan’s. To express how much they cherish and adore him, they want to attend the 2023 Academy Awards ceremony.
They invited Brendan’s girlfriend Jeanne Moore to the Oscars with them to celebrate their father’s first nomination, even though the adolescents are typically somewhat reserved. Fans of Laverne Cox, who played the lead character in The Whale, couldn’t contain their enthusiasm even during an interview with her.

Leland remarked that the family was “extremely delighted” for their dad, while Holden gushed to Laverne about how “over the moon” he and his brother were.
Father of three adult children (Holden, Leland, and Griffin), Brendan Fraser, choked up throughout the touching remarks but assured Laverne he would be “in the present” for the momentous occasion.
Brendan has discussed how his time spent filming The Whale is relevant to his Oscar nomination.
He told Laverne on the red carpet that he was leaving Hollywood after a successful period in the late 1990s and early 2000s because his new movie, “The Whale,” is about putting wrongs to rights. “I’d be lying if I claimed I didn’t see your point of view. My mind immediately goes to this fictitious character anytime I hear this term. You are not alone if, after watching the video, you identify with the issues he discusses.”
Brendan continued by saying that many more people have reached out to the Obesity Action Coalition for assistance after watching the film. “Voices are being amplified and heard by a growing population. That’s helpful, at least in a roundabout sense, in my opinion.”
In the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, Brendan is competing with Austin Butler (Elvis), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin), Paul Mescal (Aftersun), and Bill Nighy (Another Year) (Living).
