With this quote from COMINGSOON.NET article on Oscar hopefuls it seems any Oscar hopes from Karate Kid are indeed dead in the water. However with Little Big Soldier having been mentioned earlier this year as a potential entrant in the Foreign Film category we can but continue to hope Jackie will eventually get a well-deserved Oscar.
Dead in the WaterSOURCE:
Back in March, I made a rather ballsy and foolish claim that the remake of The Karate Kid would be nominated for a number of Oscars after seeing it at ShoWest. As much as I love the movie, that's doubtful at this point, especially with Sony putting more behind Fincher's The Social Network to win. I'd still like to see Jackie Chan get a Supporting Actor nomination, because I think his performance is fantastic, but Sony isn't bothering to push the movie, not even including it in with their awards screenings, so it's a bit of a lost cause.
