Holbrook is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 80th Academy Awards for portraying Ron Franz in Into the Wild.
I am grateful. Enormously grateful. Grateful to Sean Penn who gave me the role and directed this beautiful film, and grateful to Emile Hirsch-we really should share this nomination because we worked together. And grateful that after all these years of acting, I got a shot at recognition like this from the Academy. Miraculous.
