Fassbender hoping for Oscar nod

Michael Fassbender would be delighted with an Oscar nod

Michael Fassbender has admitted he is hoping to be nominated for an Oscar for one of his latest roles.

The 36-year-old German-Irish actor is tipped for a nod for his performances in in The Counsellor and 12 Years A Slave and reportedly told Sky News it would be the "icing on the cake" if he was recognised by the Academy.

The actor plays a brutal slave owner in 12 Years A Slave, and stars as a lawyer who gets caught up in organised crime in The Counsellor. Both are expected to be big films during the next awards season.

Michael said: "I don't have a litmus test for the darkest role, I just like the script and story. I don't know why this is happening. It might be time to do a comedy."

The star was previously nominated for Bafta and Golden Globe awards for the film Shame.
