Sparking a reaction from Twitter users, many were quick to comment on the Hollywood star's latest appearance: "Brendan Fraser absolutely calms my heart, such a beautiful soul. It does feel like it takes so much out of him doing interviews though, I know promotion has to be done for films but I do hope he is comfortable doing them and doesn't feel forced," commented one fan. 

"Is it just me or does Brendan Fraser look and sound like a broken man on @lorraine this morning, I hope he's not and it's jetlag," added another.

Fans have also praised the actor's down-to-earth and caring personality 

Reacting to the news, Brendan released an official statement, telling fans: 

"I'm absolutely overjoyed and deeply grateful to The Academy for this recognition and for recognizing Hong Chau's beautiful performance and Adrien Morot's incredible makeup. "I wouldn't have this nomination without Darren Aronofsky, Samuel D. Hunter, A24 and the extraordinary cast and crew who gave me the gift of Charlie. A gift I certainly didn't see coming, but it's one that has profoundly changed my life. THANK YOU!"
