Baldwin Dreams Of Oscar Nomination

Actor BILLY BALDWIN is desperate to land an Oscar nomination for his latest role because he's sick of attending the big night as someone's date.

The BACKDRAFT star's portrayal of tennis coach IVAN in acclaimed new film THE SQUID AND THE WHALE is already receiving Oscar attention and Baldwin is hoping to get his first nod.

The actor has attended the Academy Awards twice - but was a date on both occasions.

He explains, "I went once in the mid-80s... It was the year after DIRTY DANCING, and I was dating JENNIFER GREY. She asked me to be her date.

"And then I went when my brother ALEC was nominated for THE COOLER. I went as his date.

"I'd love to go this year. I'd even pay for my own hotel."
