    John Goodman should've gotten a nod for Best Supporting Actor.

    He was in both Argo and Flight...

    Sadly, he wasn't in the movie enough. About 10 minutes total. But he definitely should have replaced De Niro in that category--Bobby hasn't been "good" since the early 90s. Once he started on with the "Fockers" franchise, his career was over in my book.

    Speaking of John Goodman: He is one of my favorite character actors and his presence in any movie instantly makes it 1000x better (especially if it is crap). He is a criminally underrated actor.

    I don't know, I thought DeNiro was the best he'd been in years in that movie. No mugging and no DeNiro-isms.

    Goodman's screen time was plenty (Judi Dench won an Oscar for 8 minutes of screen time in Shakespeare In Love), I just think that the Academy underrated the movie, which I thought was very good. Plus, it was a comedic role, which the Academy has open disdain for.

    Sometimes, supporting actors are in the movies for about a minute and still get Oscar nods.

    Well, the big exception to that rule is Kevin Kline's Oscar as Otto in "A Fish Called Wanda," but it might have proved the rule -- I remember being shocked that he won.

    he also kind of dominated that movie, for being a supporting actor. Lol.

    I saw it in the theater a few weeks after it came out and thought it was quite good. I wondered if Washington would get an Oscar nomination, and I was glad that he did.

    It's always high profile actors (or "stunt" casting) when this occurs.
    John Goodman is (as mentioned) a criminally underrated character actor.

    Doesn't have leading man looks and isn't an influential force in the biz.
    No way would he get a nod for Flight, sadly. Way it goes.

    Hollywood is all politics, don'cha know?

    I agree about Goodman.
    He's, well, really good.

    Which says a lot, since he didn't coast there on other attributes. He HAD to be good.

Just seemed out-of-place to me.

    I've said before that it's nice to see Robert Zemeckis return to the land of live-action filmmaking, but the more I think about it, Flight could've been Zemeckis' most interesting performance capture piece yet.

    Only 12 years that drink beer to look cool complain about people drinking Budweiser to look cool


    It's simply the best tasting budget beer out there, hands down.



    OP - never heard of the film.
