Not sure what to make of this still, though the Cannes reviews were pretty muted.
Reviews weren't stellar for "I am Sam" also but Penn still got a nom. I think he's a safe bet for an Oscar nomination.
But wait, then again "All the King's Men" was also an Oscar hopeful that recieved negative reviews and resulted in no nomination, so I gues Penn may not be as safe as I assumed.
I was just about to mention that...
I don't think he'll get one for this. It's seams way too offbeat for the oscar voters, and the best actor field is once again looking strong this year.
Indeed. I think he's got no chance for this.
