So whether or not Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull lands in the top spot for the year or not, it will certainly be Harrison Ford's biggest movie in years. And in late August just at the start of Oscar buzz, he'll star in a high profile drama called Crossing Over.
Harrison Ford has received a grand total of one career Oscar nomination, for 1985's Witness. And how many articles and interviews about Indiana Jones have focused of Ford's age? I wonder, if he's any good in Crossing Over, if the Academy will think it's time to at least award him a second nomination? This is total speculation as the trailer for Crossing Over isn't out and who knows if Ford will be worthy. But he'll certainly be on the Oscar radar more than in any year in recent memory.
