So the Golden Globes are approaching which only fuels oscars talk. The nominations are released 25th January and predicting these is also a fun game. I was reading Deadline Hollywood ,where they listed the top contenders for best supporting actress and found this:
"Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom(Sony Pictures Classics) - It swept the Australian Oscars and has managed to win Weaver, tough and unforgettable, major critical acclaim as well as Golden Globe, CCMA, and National Board of Review plaudits, though she missed out on SAG."
I love that a small Australian film has gained American acclaim, but mainly found myself distracted by the use of "Australian Oscars"... it made me giggle...
Anyway, yes, please let Jacki Weaver be nominated.
