Today’s blog is dedicated to guys — actors all — who deserve a little extra love today.
Tom Hanks. Oscar Isaac. Robert Redford — all denied Best Actor Oscar nods by the Academy.
Now, I could be talked down on Isaac if the Academy didn’t pretty much ignore Inside Llewyn Davis, save a couple of technical awards. I mean, it didn’t even get nominated for its musical score.
And while Captain Phillips did get six other nods, how can you justify not nominating Hanks?
Did they watch the final scene??
And Redford? He was the entire movie All Is Lost. Period. What more do you want?
Apparently anything by Martin Scorsese…and I do mean, anything.
On a more somber note, I want to pay tribute to Russell Johnson — the original and best nerd crush of my generation, who left the world today…
