What it’s up for: Actor in a supporting role (Nick Nolte)
I’m beginning this post before the movie is even finished. That’s how not into it I am. I tried, I really did. The writing and story line are just not very engaging.
I really don’t have much to say here. Nick Nolte did do a good job, but not amazingly fantastic. It was a good-looking movie. It was just poorly written. The end scene was really emotional but there was very little character development throughout the movie to have it really make an impact. If you like watching MMA, then you’ll like this movie because it’s mostly just fighting scenes. I don’t mind that in general (I love The Fighter…boxing, not MMA, I know). There just wasn’t enough to keep me interested.
Although this is a weak category, it’s doubtful that Nick Nolte will win.
