Why didn't Jackie Earle Haley get more award buzz, since I felt like bringing it up earlier? Sure Watchmen wasn't all that critically praised, but JEH was the saving grace of the movie and gave the 2nd best supporting performance of the year.
I suppose it's better than Morgan Freeman over Rockwell though.
Moon never, ever, EVER had a shot. 500 days at least had some love at points from precursors, but Moon was never even a possibility.
I understand that it wasn't going to get nominated. I do realize that there is certain protocol that is in place, especially surrounding the awards. What I take issue with is the fact that a great movie like Moon wasn't nominated while a solid yet unspectacular movie like The Blind Side, was, simply because its net gross was about 250M higher.

I kind of agree of Haley. I didnt like Watchmen that much, but he certainly wasnt the reason why. He was pretty fantastic. Early release + bad reviews are a killer. You need Precious-like reviews to stay in peoples heads.
Id put him in over Damon, at least. Although Id put several other people ahead of Damon too. (Havent seen Last Station, regrettably, so I wont mention Plummer)
