Actor, Comedy or Musical - 'Casino Jack'
Kevin Spacey’s reaction to news of his nom for “Casino Jack” was bittersweet. He’s glad to be recognized for the first lead role he’s tackled in some time, and happy that the kudos recognition serves as a tribute to helmer George Hickenlooper, who died in October.
” ‘Casino Jack’ is the first central role I’ve played in a few years,” he said. “For this film to have been recognized for the performance in the light of our extremely sad news that our director, George Hickenlooper, passed away a month ago, for me, this is really a tribute to him.”
