The Good Will Showdown

Hollywood surely loves the fun Academy Award situation, such as Hillary Swank and Annett Benning went head to head for best actress two years in a row.

And it's made me wonder if the entertainment industry will get a chance to make a press story of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck going head to head for Best Supporting Actor academy awards.

Affleck and Damon are both on the fringe of contenders for this years best supporting actor buzz...Matt Damon for his role in the Departed and Ben Affleck for his role in Hollywoodland.

Matt Damon also has a slight chance of being nominated for the Good Shephard as well, but that would likely be in the lead actor catagory.

It's hard to tell if Affleck and Damon would both have a chance of going head-to-head for a best supporting actor. Damon and Affleck are both considered Academy Award winners, but in the original screenplay catagory for Good Will Hunting.

I think Affleck has a reasonable shot at a Supporting Actor nomination. The movie hasn't been getting stallar reviews, but if they like a performance they like it.

Damon I don't think has a hope for The Departed. If anyone from that film is getting nommed it's Nicholson. Although he has as good a shot as any right now for a Best Actor spot.

My bets would be on Affleck. I've seen quite a few clips from Hollywoodland, as well as the HBO "Making of..." special, and he gives a very good performance as George Reeves (who is definitely the centre of the movie). I haven't seen any clips from The Departed, but it's hard for me to see Damon topping Affleck's performance.

mmm...
not a big Affleck fan. He doesn't have much range as far as I can tell. I think Matt Damon is a much better actor--I love the Bourne series.

It'll be interesting to see Affleck in a more serious role. I don't think he's really had the chance to prove himself as a 'serious' actor and this could be the ticket for him. I'm excited to see what he brings to the table in "Hollywoodland". As for Affleck and Damon going head to head for the Oscars...I don't think this is too off the mark. I just hope they both deserve the nomination!
