Pros: A longtime bridesmaid at the Academy Awards, Sheridan could find himself recognized once again for pulling some fantastic performances out of his young cast.
Cons: Like "Lovely Bones," "Brothers'" early reviews have not been stellar. At this point, Sheridan returning to the Oscar race seems iffy at best.
