We all know that Mickey Rourke will definitely get nominated for “Best Leading Actor” for his movie “The Wrestler”, but what if Clint Eastwood gets nominated for his role as Walt Kowalksi in “Gran Torino” for the “Best Leading Actor” category?
If Eastwood does get the actor category for “Gran Torino”, then Rourke is screwed. Eastwood won two Oscars for “Best Director” in the past but he never won anything for “Best Actor” yet, could this year finally be Eastwood’s chance? If Eastwood’s in the nomination, then I don’t see Rourke winning at all.
Eastwood’s role in “Gran Torino” is Oscar worthy enough, I’ll tell you that right now.
