With "The Road" taking a detour to next year, "Good," an adaptation of a C.P. Taylor play, is Viggo Mortensen's best chance at an Oscar nod this year. Mortensen, 50, continues to impress with his range of roles. Last year, he earned his first nod by playing a Russian undercover cop in "Eastern Promises." Earlier this year, he rode to the rescue of a Wild West town in "Appaloosa." Now, he loses himself in the part of a professor hoping to find his way in 1930s Germany. Portraying a learned man struggling with his conscience won an Oscar for Paul Scofield ("A Man for All Seasons"). (Larry D Horricks / ThinkFILM)
