Gosling out of Best Actor running already?
10.17.07 by REELZ
There are some nasty rumors floating about the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) are taking a pass on screening Lars and the Real Girl--the surprisingly well-done little indie about a sad, shy, Midwestern man who orders a Real Doll and then believes she is his living girlfriend.
If the rumors are true, they mean that actor Ryan Gosling--who was nominated last year for his performance in Half Nelson--can be crossed off your list for potential Best Actor nominees. And we think that is just plain old sad.
True, it's become fashionable to talk about how terrific an actor Gosling is. But the thing is, he is really great--and if he treats a quirky little ditty about a man who thinks a sex doll is talking to him with as much respect as one about a teacher with a secret drug addition, then don't we think the Academy should, too?
