Thomas Horn being campaigned as a Lead Actor in "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close"

The Warner Bros. Awards Site has gone LIVE and they have their lineup of contenders including Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part II, Happy Feet Two, J. Edgar, Contangion, and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

Stephen Daldry’s film, on the cusp of being completed, has listed it’s child actor Thomas Horn as a Lead Actor candidate for this year’s consideration pool.  While this significantly hurts the actor in making the lineup with an extremely crowded field already, it’s good to see the belief placed in the performance.  Tom Hanks and Max Von Sydow are listed in the Supporting Actor category and Sandra Bullock and Zoe Caldwell are listed in Supporting Actress.  With Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar seeming to fall by the wayside as of late, I bet Warner will be placing all bets on Daldry’s picture.  Harry Potter is already making a strong push for itself but it’ll need some major precursor support to make it in the end.

Comment and discuss.
