I enjoyed this one and it should look quite nice on BD. I wouldn't be surprised if Ralph Fiennes gets a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

In my opinion, the size and content of Fiennes' role is more suitable for Best Supporting Actor. The focus of much of the story is on Keira Knightley and Dominic Cooper's characters. If you actually add up Fiennes' screen time, I don't think it's as much as it might seem. His final scene in the film, for me, leaves a lasting impression, though. He has a MUCH better chance competing as Best Supporting Actor as opposed to Best Actor against actors in roles which are TRULY the centerpiece of the film. (After all, this is called "The Duchess", not "The Duke".)

Yes I know that but I think that the oscarīs members if he gets a nomination they are going to consider Ralph Fiennes the lead actor only because is Ralph Fiennes. Just Like Abigail Breslin she should get a nomination for Lead Actress not supporting role because the movie was about her.
