Oscar Injustice Pt.2 Harrison Ford
Feb 2012 18


Continuing our reflection on what should have been as we head towards the 84th Academy Awards on 26th Feb.

Although nominated in 1985 for Best Actor for his portrayal of John Book in Peter Weir’s Witness, Harrison Ford’s finest acting moments on screen are as the obsessive inventor Allie Fox in Weir’s The Mosquito Coast the following year. Ford has never been a dynamic character actor, but his work with Weir was the closest he came. Criminal he wasn’t on the shortlist of nominations in 1985.
