Ke Huy Quan‘s story has been one of the most surprising and emotional in this regard, but the biggest comeback of the year has been Brendan Fraser, who has achieved what seemed impossible.

Although it looked like a miracle, Brendan Fraser has won the Oscar for Best Actor for The Whale. Darren Aronofsky’s film brought Brendan Fraser out of a dramatic hiatus and an impressive depression in which he had gained many pounds and had become addicted to painkillers. But his return to the big screen couldn’t have been more impressive.
