It was nominated for 7 academy awards but,the only bad thing about it is that Coppola used his daughter in this movie,no offense to Sofia Coppola she is a great writer and director,but she's not a very good actress.If you will take the talent from Meryl Streep,Annette Benning,Marion Cotillard,Hellen Mirren,Judy Dench,Glen Cloose and Maggie Smith and put it all into Sofia Coppola she will still suck,as an actress not as a writer or director.
