Academy Award nominations. Notice anything odd about that Actor in a Supporting Role category?

I’m old school. Love the Academy Awards, though I’m trending towards the irreverent Golden Globes these days.

Ever since I was a kid, always looked forward to the nominations, looked forward to the actual broadcast. But with Twitter, etc., the bloom is off the rose, at least a bit. Everything associated with the movies has just gotten so over-exposed.

But I digress.

Follow the headline link, check out the nominations. One thing that stood out to me was the Actor in a Supporting Role category: Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Brad Pitt.

The youngest of these actors is Brad Pitt. And he’s 56. Weird, no?
