Another significant omission at the Oscars was "A Dangerous
Method," which got no nominations at all. Surely Viggo Mortensen's sly, subtle,
and surprisingly moving portrayal of Sigmund Freud deserved some recognition.
At least he is getting the Coolidge Award for career achievement, which, judging
from this recent conversation I had with him on the phone [he is living in Madrid] might be a more
substantive acknowledgment of his accomplishments than the often capricious ,
superficial, and trendy Academy choices.
