What is he pointing at?
Timothée Chalamet: actor, icon, king of 2018. The Call Me By Your Name star may not have won the Academy Award for Best Actor on Sunday, but with the sharpest white tux to possibly ever grace the red carpet, his fandom only grew stronger at the Oscars.
Some questions were raised that night (why did Gary Oldman win instead of Chalamet or Daniel Kaluuya? Why is Sally Hawkins in love with a fish?), but other things became brilliantly clear. Timothée Chalamet is a red carpet pointer. He likes to point at things. The subject of the pointing is not entirely known, but he has a favourite red carpet pose, and this is it.
It’s been going on for quite a while now, both on and off the red carpet. With co-stars, friends, solo – he will point at anything and anyone, as the below pics prove:
Here he is with Daniel Kaluuya, pointing. They’re both doing it, so maybe they’ve just seen a mutual acquaintance…
Ah, no. Here he is with his co-star Armie Hammer, who we observe is not pointing.
Now we leave the red carpet, and observe the pointing action is still strong. Hey! You! Hi!
To the awards podium now, where Chalamet pulled some strong pointing action.
I see you, Timothée.
Seriously, what is he pointing at? His line of vision isn’t even directed at the crowd!
A full six months before the Oscars it was already Timmy’s go-to pose.
Before the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ era, Chalamet was already showing signs of red carpet pointing. Note the nonchalance of pointing in one direction and looking in another.
Never stop pointing, Chalamet.
