Jon Voight received his fourth nomination so far for portraying Howard Cossell in Ali.
The main question with this performance is how the impersonation is becuase frankly that is all the performance is. Well it is not very good. He sounds stiff as Cossell, and his impersonation never sounds really like the real Cossell, but just a comic imitation that really is not suppose to be funny. There simply is no reason this lackluster impersonation should have been nominated for any sort of acting award.
