Sony Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment seem disinterested in running “For Your Consideration” ads for ELEGY, which is a huge shame because Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz gave some of the best performances of their career in that movie, really strong efforts which shouldn’t be overlooked.
ELEGY is probably in my top three movies of the year, I really adored this movie. I wish it was getting more buzz…
Dennis Hopper too may be in with a shout at Best Supporting Actor. You can read my original review of the movie HERE.

Four Your Consideration is Matt’s new feature attempting to showcase the movies and performances he has enjoyed this year and he believes is worthy of Academy Award nomination. Previously he mentioned Josh Brolin in W. and Heath Ledger in THE DARK KNIGHT.
