Nominations for the 85th Academy Awards
Performance by an actor in a leading role
Bradley Cooper in “Silver Linings Playbook”
Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln”
Hugh Jackman in “Les Misérables”
Joaquin Phoenix in “The Master”
Denzel Washington in “Flight”
Do y’all think it’s true that Denzel really does have to play a dirty character in order to be recognized by the Academy? Seems like that’s how it’s gone so far.
