      They may not want to recognize these actors. We may not get award-
      worthy performances. But from what I've been hearing, both publicly
      and privately, for the past year-and-a-half, there have been some
      very good performances.

      And then we have the beloved Liv Tyler screaming and ducking behind
      Viggo as thirty Orcs come charging at her, not mention whacking her
      poor horse with a sword. But, as I pointed out previously, I believe
      the focus of her role in the films has been changed drastically.

      And as long as the horse wasn't hurt, I'd watch her wield a sword any
      day. But that's just me. :)
