2. How Was John Hawkes Ignored?
How good is John Hawkes in "The Sessions"? As a polio-stricken man paralyzed from the neck down, Hawkes spends the entire 90-minute film simply laying there, but still gives one of the most inspiring and emotional performances of 2012. Somehow, he was passed up for Best Actor. Thankfully, his daring "Sessions" co-star Helen Hunt has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress.—David Onda (Photo: Fox Searchlight)
