I'm not surprised that Julia Roberts didn't recieve a nomination, however I'm very surprised that Outer critics circle winner (And former Tony nominee) Gabriel Byrne was snubbed. I'm glad Oliver Platt got nominated, because he's usually good in films that aren't, and I'm actually rooting for him (Although he won't win) since Ralph Fiennes ( Who, as everyone knows I'm a fan of), Has already won a Tony for Hamlet ( The only actor to win one for that role).
