J.K. Simmons, Edward Norton and more vie for gold.
Robert Duvall ("The Judge")
Pros: Duvall is Hollywood royalty, a no nonsense kind of guy who the industry is always willing to honor if given the chance. And in "The Judge," he delivers one of his better performances in a number of years.
Cons: Still, the movie received very lackluster reviews (and more than its share of outright hate). On top of that, it didn't make a dent at the box office.
