Well, the Academy certainly listened this year to some of the suggestions, including The War Room getting a Documentary nomination. This was one year those idiots didn’t make that ordinary mistake of omission. And as to Anna Pacquin, she ended up winning the damn Oscar!
I couldn’t agree more about Eastwood’s acting here. I was so proud of him in the scene when I saw it in the theater. Tough guy Clint with tears and a quivering lip. Fantastic.
Sadly, the Academy’s good judgement didn’t last long with their omissions of Hoop Dreams and Crumb the next year.
