Article Excerpt:

Chrishere.We're pleased as punch with all of the precursor love that's greeted Saoirse Ronan's timeless star turn inBrooklyn.Today though,in light ofSAG's virtually female-free Outstanding Ensemble list,let's give some love to this film's unnominated but vibrant ensemble.

Yes,Saoirse Ronan is getting the majority of the prizes and praises for the film - heck,she could share an ensemble prize for the film with just herself and her multitude of emotions  in the film and you'd have no complaints from me.However,Eilis's journey in the film is more fully realized with the lived-in actors that surround Ronan's protagonist.


  • Emory Cohenas Tony Fiorello - I'll join those who were happily surprised with his performance,after ghastly work inThe Place Beyond the Pinesand elsewhere.Not just a pining lothario,he's also believably accepting of Eilis's need to be her own woman.Dreamboat of the Year.
  • Domnhall Gleesonas Jim Farrell - A much more bland love interest to Eilis,but intentionally so.He really sells Jim's uncomplicated ambitions
  • Julie Waltersas Mrs.Kehoe - Archly hilarious as the matron of Eilis's boarding house for girls.She'd be a Supporting Actress contender if it weren't for competition with more screen time and *ahem* narrative focus
  • Jim Broadbentas Father Flood - As charming as ever in a tiny role

And here's where it get's really goodafter the jump...
