Robert Downey Jr. Trivia

Robert Downey Jr. was the first actor to win a Golden Globe for portraying Sherlock Holmes.
- submitted by J.Cynthia D (2 years ago)
In 1992, Downey became the first cast member of Saturday Night Live to be nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, which he garnered for 1992's Chaplin. Though he lost the award to Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, he won the BAFTA (the awards given by the British Academy for Film and Television Arts, the U.K. equivalent of the Oscars) for Best Actor for Chaplin, in Chaplin's own home country.
