I'm really hoping that this film manages to get at least a couple of Oscar nominations. It is such a beautiful, interesting film, and a living memorial to Adrienne Shelly.
Hmm... How about a "best supporting actor" nomination for Nathan?
I wouldn't be surprised to see a nod go to Andy Griffith, 'though I agree that Nathan was great in his role. In a perfect world, Adrienne Shelly should get nominations for supporting Actress, Screenplay, Director, and Best Song...
Actually, I don't think Ms. Shelly's acting was anything special. That, in and of itself was noteworthy--in her directorial debut, she almost seemed to be playing her part to keep the costs down. It definitely wasn't any sort of a "star vehicle" for her.

Actaully, now that you mention it, TDBrown, the Andy Griffith nod makes a lot more sense. He's had a lot more career than Nathan, and at 81, he has a lot less of one left, yet he's not very awarded--with but a single emmy nomination to his name.
The film definitely deserves Best Song, without a doubt.
