Oscar-Nominated TV Actors

george.jpgAs you may have heard, the Oscar nominations came out this morning, and I thought it was important to recognize the many illustrious television veterans who have been nominated.

Best Actor
  • George Clooney (ER; E/R; Sisters; Bodies Of Evidence; Roseanne; Baby Talk; The Golden Girls; Murder, She Wrote; Hotel; The Facts Of Life; others)
  • Daniel Day-Lewis (Frost In May, a BBC miniseries that barely counts)
  • Johnny Depp (21 Jump Street, Hotel) (what's with Hotel?)
  • Tommy Lee Jones (One Life To Live, Barnaby Jones, Charlie's Angels, Family)
  • Viggo Mortensen (Search For Tomorrow, Miami Vice, High School Narc) (hee, High School Narc)
Best Actress
  • Cate Blanchett (Heartland) (Australian miniseries...whatever!)
  • Julie Christie (A For Andromeda, The Saint)
  • Marion Cotillard (things in French and Highlander)
  • Laura Linney (Tales Of The City, Law & Order, Frasier)
  • Ellen Page (Trailer Park Boys, ReGenesis)
Best Supporting Actor
  • Casey Affleck (The Kennedys Of Massachusetts) (also starring Steven Weber as JFK!)
  • Javier Bardem (Tango) (best unrelated thing about his IMDB entry: a movie called Jamon, Jamon, which IMDB helpfully points out can be translated as either "Ham, Ham" or "Salami, Salami")
  • Hal Holbrook (half the miniseries in the known world, including Lincoln, North & South, and Emma: Queen Of The South Seas; Designing Women; Evening Shade)
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman (Law & Order)
  • Tom Wilkinson (Crime & Punishment)
Best Supporting Actress
  • Cate Blanchett (again!)
  • Ruby Dee (The Stand; The Fugitive; Police Woman; Spenser For Hire; etc. etc. etc.)
  • Saoirse Ronan (Proof, The Clinic) (these are both Irish; it's okay if you didn't see them)
  • Amy Ryan (As The World Turns, Home Improvement, I'll Fly Away, Homicide: Life On The Street, Third Watch, Law & Order...oh, and The Wire)
  • Tilda Swinton (Your Cheatin' Heart)
I would also congratulate Tony Gilroy, who, before writing and directing Michael Clayton (and receiving nominations in both capacities), also wrote The Cutting Edge, the D.B. Sweeney/Moira Kelly movie that has kept me company on far too many snowy afternoons in my lifetime, thanks to its endless life on basic cable. And also Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, rightly nominated for Best Original Song for the stunning "Falling Slowly" from Once. I've been gassing on about Glen since 2005, and now, I feel vindicated.
