Oscar nomination

Shannon is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 81st Academy Awards for portraying John Givings in Revolutionary Road.

I was sound asleep and then a little shell-shocked when the calls started coming in. For me, it raises the bar and expectations, but that’s exciting. I’ve been an actor for almost 20 years and started as low as you can on the totem pole. It’s kind of mind-blowing. I’m looking forward to what it may bring in the future.
