Re: Oscar Nominations are out
As entertaining as Gran Torino was, it had a very small scope compared to the big epic, serious dramas that usually get nominated. Also beyond Eastwood, the acting was very bad, about on par with a Hallmark movie of the week. I still really enjoyed it but I wouldn't put it in the same "serious contender" category as Doubt, Benjamin Button, MILK, Dark Knight, The Wrestler, Rev Road, Slumdog Millionaire etc. etc. Maybe if they had a "crowd pleaser" category I could see it getting nominated and winning.
