The Little Rock actor/director/producer is nominated, in the Best Supporting Actor category, for an Independent Spirit Award
, the highest award most indies can hope for. He's up against Jermaine Clement "Gentlemen Broncos," Woody Harrelson ("The Messenger"), Christian McKay ("Me and Orson Welles") and Christopher Plummer ("The Last Station").
"That Evening Sun's" Mia Wasikowska was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. But stupidly, Hal Holbrook got passed over for Best Actor. Maybe the Oscars won't make the same oversight.
The Spirit Awards will be given on Friday, March 5.
