Days for Jake Lloyd?
Howard wrote, I seriously doubt the insiders you mention are inside enough to have seen an edited version of the new Star Wars, because I have, and in my opinion, Jake is terrific in the film (which by the way is truly amazing). He then went on to criticize Newsweeks decision to print the fans comments stating, For Newsweek to attack a childs performance based on rumor and without having even seen the movie is shameful. As someone who was acting professionally at an early age, I can assure you that Jake is quite capable of reading, understanding, and feeling the full humiliation of a piece like that."
Other fantasy movies to appear in nominations: Armageddon blasted its way into Sound, Sound Effects Editing and Visual Effects, and the other-worldly Pleasantville and What Dreams May Come made colorful entries to Art Direction. Gods and Monsters, the acclaimed bio-pic of James Whale, also took nominations for Best Actor for Ian McKellen, Best Supporting Actress for Lynn Redgrave and Best Adapted Screenplay.
