Q. You picked Nick Nolte, another dark horse in this race, for best supporting actor.
A. I’m really rooting for Nick Nolte. I thought “Warrior” was a criminally overlooked, under-attended film. I thought that there were some terrific performances in there and I thought he did really great work. The British guy, Tom Hardy, was frighteningly good. He totally transformed himself, his body. You don’t believe for one second that he’s British. He inhabits the character. You absolutely believe him.
