Industry Friend: “Why aren’t the pundits considering Javier Bardem for a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his Skyfall villain? Silva is the most exciting baddie in any movie in a long time. Javier is one of the world’s greatest and his performance here is alchemy.” Wells response: He’s superb, agreed, but his Bond baddie isn’t as meaty a role as his Oscar-winning performance as Anton Chigur in No Country For Old Men. People see it as a vivid but lesser effort.
