I predict Art Carney (I think you did this year once before, right?).

This is an incredibly strong line-up...I am not sure yet who is my favorite.

Sage Slowdive said...

My favorite is Art Carney, I'll root for him.

Louis Morgan said...

Fritz: It certainly is strong. I have done this year before as a short version, but not as the longer profiles. I am re-watching each film so my opinion may change.

I think it's between Jack and Art Carney. I've seen four of the nominees, but I don't remember Murder On The Orient Express and I haven't seen Godfather Part 2 from start to finish.

I predict it's gonna be Carney though I still hope it's gonna be Pacino. He was great as Michael!

And, do you think Pacino deserved to be nominated in The Godfather Part III? And what are your thoughts about that film?

Louis Morgan said...

I have not watched part 3 yet, I am hesitant because of how many describe it.
