Robert Pattinson may finally be getting attention as an actor for something other than the Twilight franchise, as early Oscar buzz on his performance in Water for Elephants is already growing.


“It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he were to receive an Oscar nod for this role,” a source close to the film tells Hollywood Life. Even his Oscar-winning co-star, Christoph Waltz, is impressed.


“It’s in my house,” Watlz says of his own Oscar. “But the way things are looking, I might have to hand it off to Rob next year.”
