StinkyLulu's Supporting Actor Performances Worth Remembering: James Garner in THE NOTEBOOK

StinkyLulu's gotta keep it brief...
The Golden Globes are tomorry & Academy Award nominations are due today. (Not that StinkyLu has anything to do with either.) Just a word to the universe & you lovely reader: please don't fergit James Garner's simple & simply heartbreaking performance in The Notebook. Possibly the most emotionally throttling performances captured on film this year, rivalled only by the extraordinary Sharon Warren in Ray (but that's a whole 'nother category...)

SO -- StinkyLu's award season begins with

~ Peter Saarsgard in Kinsey
~ Clive Owen in Closer
~ Freddie Highmore in Finding Neverland
~ Mark Wahlberg in I Heart Huckabees
~ Neil Patrick Harris in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
~ James Garner in The Notebook

A word on the frontrunners:
StinkyLu's sure Morgan Freeman's very good in Million Dollar Baby but the flick's not been to StinkyLu's Neighborhood yet. Thomas Haden Church got his career back, should be award enough... Either can nudge lil Freddie out if necessary, but this is StinkyLulu's world -- so, hey.
