The Oscar nominations are due to be announced on January 14th, and here are three actors from the movie TRUMBO whose performances are definitely worthy.

TRUMBO tells the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo who was blacklisted during the McCarthy Era.  Bryan Cranston does a terrific job playing this talented, though highly complicated man, one who does his best writing in the bathtub and manages to find ways around his own industry banishment.  However, it’s Helen Mirren, as the venal Hedda Hopper, and John Goodman, as Frank King, the decent small-time movie man who lets Trumbo write again using several fake pseudonyms, who make this whole story riveting.

I’m hoping to see them all come home with Oscars!
