Monsieur Gustave H. in The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Arguably, the best drama movie performance by Fiennes to date. The collaboration between the British actor and Wes Anderson produced an unforgettable story of many characters staying at the prestigious Grand Budapest Hotel, where Monsieur Gustave H. charms his guests. The ensemble cast featured Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, F. Murray Abraham, as well as Bill Murray, Edward Norton, and many other actors who worked on this wonderfully colored story. The Grand Budapest Hotel won several Oscars and also took home Best Picture and Best Director nominations. However, inexplicably, the Academy snubbed Fiennes that year. “Rudeness is merely the expression of fear” is among the many memorable lines by M. Gustave.
