Nick Nolte Snags Best Supporting Actor Oscar Nomination for ‘Warrior’

(If Jonah Hill wins this thing, everyone else nominated needs to retire immediately. No, seriously.)

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for this year’s Academy Awards and it looks like the early Oscar buzz Nick Nolte was getting had its merit. Nolte was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in “Warrior.” In the film, the 70-year-old multiple-time Oscar and Golden Globe nominee played Paddy Conlon, a former alcoholic, boxer, and estranged father of the movie’s two brother protagonists.

Also nominated for the trophy were 2012 Golden Globe Best Supporting Actor winner Christopher Plummer for “Beginners,”  Jonah Hill for “Moneyball,”  Kenneth Branagh for “My Week With Marilyn” and Max von Sydow for “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.”

Although it’s unclear who the frontrunner of the category is, the fact that an MMA movie even got a nomination is big news as it basically signals that the sport is no longer a fringe one. Hopefully Nolte wins just so we can hear his acceptance speech.

I seriously fucking hated this movie... Uggghhh absolute garbage. I honestly don't know how any MMA fan could... even crap like red belt was better.

^ Pffft Door Schmoor, Manbearverine rips tanks in half.
Mofo- January 24, 2012 at 1:40 pm
This is a movie about a man who ripped the door off a tank. Umm does anyone out there find that believable for ONE SECOND?
Mofo- January 24, 2012 at 1:39 pm
Nolte was the only good thing about that movie. Though the whole moby dick thing was pretty frikkin "after school special" in how obvious it was as a script mechanism.
Warrior is completely fucking by the numbers formulaic. Anyone who likes it hasn't seen the 3,000 other movies that have the same plot/characters/pacing etc.

@KCCS - LOL, Optimus Poon!
OK my bad.
You need to quick fucking with my sister, and get these bastards at CP to send you the forgotten passcode.

I don't have any aliases except Optimus Poon. I could never remember the password though so I just made a new account.

@Kid Clam Curtains Says:, is that what it really sounded like? You can do better kid. Then again only one other person around here likes to talk shit about peoples sisters. I am guessing you have at least 2 aliases don't you?
@WarpedAcorn Says: - alright then, but I didn't want to offend anyone - so I have been being nice. I can take the Sugar back from Rashad, if y'all (great fucking hick word) don't mind.
@bootystar Says: - I like a straight shooter - so I agree with you. I give you the Asian's with nearly 100% ownership for all martial arts flicks - as long as that list does not include that goofy fucking Jackie Chan.
Also, Kareem Abdul Jabar always gets the same free pass on the set, same as Shaft. Do you agree or disagree?
WarpedAcorn- January 24, 2012 at 11:29 am
Sometimes I wish Xeno would stop sugarcoating his opinions and just let us know how he really feels.
bootystar- January 24, 2012 at 11:19 am
@xeno, word bro. watch hollywoodized fight movies is like watching a fully sopa censored mma fights cuz of course asians own martial arts. now let me get back to watching some fuzzed out asian porn cuz sopa censored it cuz americans own porn

I recently watched Warrior. I gave it 6/10. I don't see much reason for anybody to watch it. The plot is worn out, the characters we've seen dozens of times begore, and the plot was thoroughly predictable and uninspired. Not horrible, no unwatchable, but nothing new to see here.

But, Nolte was absolutely stellar. I gained a lot of respect fo him.
Kid Clam Curtains- January 24, 2012 at 10:57 am
Sounds like Nick Nolte and the horse in War Horse fucked Xeno's sister.

@Kid Clam Curtains
I googled that kid and you are right. I bet her parents gotta tie steaks around her neck just so the dog will play with her. Her face looks like Pink Fights participants' genitals. Other than picking on the personal appearance of a child, is there anything wrong with making this CP fodder?
XENOPHON- January 24, 2012 at 10:51 am
Quote: "Warrior tells the story of two estranged brothers entering a mixed martial arts tournament, and deals with the brothers' struggling relationship with each other and with their father."
Ohhhh, how sweet. Maybe the Diaz brothers or all you fucks from broken families will get some tears. Cut it out.
Come on, what a lame plot for a martial arts movie. You want to watch a real movie. Haven't see a good one in some time that wasn't a re-run. Do yourselves a favor men, don't let your dumb ass chick drag you to see "Warhorse." Talk about weak sauce.

. wonder your fags give so many props to the Hollywoodized version of the UFC, and always defending the promotion at every turn...your true love is acting, lighting, getting facial, collagen lip injections, and the list of "WHOS Who," for the Emmy Awards nominees...
Who here still watches those fucked up awards shows, raise your hand high to acknowledge you deserve a bitch slap.
Kid Clam Curtains- January 24, 2012 at 10:49 am
seriously, google Kerris Dorsey
Kid Clam Curtains- January 24, 2012 at 10:46 am
Warrior was a good movie. Too bad it didn't make money.
However, I will say I thought Moneyball was a contrived pile of shit. Brad Pitt was great in it but the movie seemed like a big budget lifetime movie. And how the fuck does Brad Pitt's character have a daughter that's uglier than a bowling shoe? Her parents are Brad Pitt and Robin Wright and I'm supposed to believe their daughter looks like Randal Tex Cobb's son? Horseshit.
The12ozCurls- January 24, 2012 at 10:21 am
Nolte sounds like he smokes 4 packs of Lucky Strike's an hour. I mean, holy f'in crap. I bet he hacks up loogies that look like an ant farm.
RwilsonR- January 24, 2012 at 10:12 am
^ Why, did Jon Fitch make a cameo in that clip, Nomad?
NomadRip- January 24, 2012 at 10:10 am
Can someone tell me if he said anything worthwhile in that interview clip above? I fell asleep all three times I tried watching it.
Lesnarischamp- January 24, 2012 at 10:06 am
I've been putting off watching this, but I think I'll go download it now. I mean, uh, "rent legally from a video store".
rngeorgeh- January 24, 2012 at 9:58 am
P.S.- He ripped the door off a fricking tank!
rngeorgeh- January 24, 2012 at 9:58 am
It's not a movie about MMA, it's about life, with MMA as a backdrop. I'm not surprised at all at the nomination; great acting!
Get Off Me- January 24, 2012 at 9:56 am
Nolte took method acting to a whole new level for Warrior.
RwilsonR- January 24, 2012 at 9:55 am
When I saw this, I had to check imdb to see if there was some indie-art film also named 'Warrior' that I'd never heard of, since I didn't really think they would nominate an MMA film? Who knew? (obviously not me, since I've never seen Warrior, even though I won some tickets to it awhile back, CP).
