Geoffry Rush is one of Australia's greatest actors. In my opinion more talented than our other exports such as Nicole Kidman and Russel Crowe. And at least in his case is actually Australian...born and raised unlike many other's who have been adopted by Australia. Also Australian films are not below him, and he is a regular participant in other Australian theatre productions.
This man desverse all the credit and international recognition for his outstanding performance in the Australian film based Swimming Upstream...for which he won an AFI, the highest recognition in Australian film.
This man deserves not only a fourth Oscar nomination but a second win. And I am certain in the short future he will.
