TV SHOWS over 4 years ago

Best Actor and Supporting Actor Nominations for 2009 over 4 years ago
Eastwood (Gran Torino) and Penn (Milk) are probably the favorites for lead, in my opinion. DiCaprio (Revolutionary Road) will almost certainly receive a nomination.
As Christopher said, Ledger will certainly be nominated for supporting and I could definitely see the Academy awarding him posthumously. If they don’t, I could see Brolin (Milk) or Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) winning.
BEST PERFORMANCES OF '08 over 4 years ago
Speaking only about the films I’ve seen so far, Michelle Williams is near-perfect in Wendy and Lucy and Sean Penn turns the best performance in an already great career as Harvey Milk. Sally Hawkins was wonderful too. As far as supporting roles go, all of the Ledger praise is not unfounded and Penelope Cruz continued her excellence in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

I’m surprised Truffaut’s Antoine et Colette hasn’t been mentioned. It’s incredibly beautiful.

I just want to know if anybody has pointed out that the OP incorrectly typed “all do respect” instead of “all due respect.”
