LONDON (AP) British actor Albert Finney, the Academy Award-nominated star of films from "Tom Jones" to "Skyfall," has died at the age of 82.

Finney's family said Friday that he "passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side."

Finney was a rare star who managed to avoid the Hollywood limelight for more than five decades after bursting to international fame in 1963 in the title role of "Tom Jones."

The film gained him the first of five Oscar nominations. Others followed for "Murder on the Orient Express," ''The Dresser," ''Under the Volcano" and "Erin Brockovich."

In later years he brought authority to action movies, including the James Bond thriller "Skyfall" and two of the Bourne films.

Shame on Hollywood for being more interested in political posturing than talent and never awarding Finney an honorary Oscar. (NT)egee33Friday, February 08, 10:11:47am
  • I couldn't agree more. (NT) -- The younger generation and their political persuasion have ruined not only the award, but the show., Friday, February 08, 10:13:05am
Did you like the 1982 movie "Annie" with Finney as Daddy Warbucks, Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan and Aileen Quinn in the title role?My takeFriday, February 08, 10:47:40am
Albert Finney was one of those chameleon actor of the 1960s/70s, when he was his BEST at becoming others, in roles like title role of "Tom Jones", "Murder on the Orient Express", "The Dresser", and "The Duellists" -and nominated FIVE times for Oscar! (NT)I even liked his character roles in "Oceans 12", "Jason Bourne" and his last -007's "Skyfall".Friday, February 08, 01:24:08pm
