FROZEN RIVER EARNS TWO OSCAR NOMINATIONS: Best Actress and Best Screenplay

Oscar Warm-Up: Melissa Leo: My Body as 'Instrument'

I told you back in August 2008 about this little film and about Melissa Leo, at that moment I expressed that her performance was one of the best in the year so far.

At the beginning of December 2008, after the Independent Spirit Awards nominations, I said, and I'm going to quote myself: "I'm smelling an Oscar nod for her role". After the Golden Globes I was a little disappointed because Frozen River didn't get any nominations, but this morning I wake up to realize that Melissa Leo is up for an Oscar as Best Actress in a Leading Role and FIRST TIME DIRECTOR AND WRITER Courtney Hunt is up in the Original Screenplay Category.

Since this Guerrilla Corner, congratulations to them! and kudos to the member of the Academy that at least this time, were fair.
