Inside the June issue, Michael Fassbender says he's just as surprised as you are that he wasn't at the Oscars:
"At the beginning people [say], ‘You're going to be going to the Oscars,' and you're like, ‘Whatever, doesn't matter, don't think so.' But after a while it does penetrate. After a while you're like, ‘Anyway, so I'm going to the Oscars …' And you start to believe it. And I did. I thought I was going. And then I found out I wasn't and I was upset. I was very upset by it. The first reaction was, ‘What the f- …?' It's a vanity thing. It does become important to you. And it shouldn't. A good little lesson."
Also, sorry to report, your boyfriend has a girlfriend. Fassbender is dating his Shame costar Nicole Beharie:
"I'm seeing Nicole, we're trying to see each other as often as possible," he acknowledges. "That's kind of difficult when she lives [in New York] and I live in England." He says they got together during the film's promotion. "Nothing happened while we were filming. We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that."
