It's pretty shameful that the Australian Open qualifiers are being played out in the open right now while citizens of the city are being told to stay inside because of the air quality. From what I'm gathering a lot of the players are complaining, with one player having to give up because of a coughing fit caused by the air quality.
It didn't work for Sigourney Weaver, Emma Thompson, Cate Blanchett, or Julianne Moore when they had two nominations in the same year. Most recent woman to win one of the two nominations was Holly Hunter.
It's crazy that it took Tom Hanks 19 years between nominations. Speaking of supporting actor lots of big name actors in there with four Oscar winners and Brad Pitt.
That said, I'm feeling very lackluster about this year. Nothing that stands out for me personally.
