Though most of the buzz over An Education has been regarding Carey Mulligan's lead performance, Alfred Molina's role as her father has been mostly overlooked. Not to me, though; I thought his fine portrayal of a strict but loving father who's similarly seduced by Peter Sarsgaard's Lothario in the flick is deserving of an Oscar nod as well. I don't expect to hear his name on Feb. 2, but he's got me in his corner.
