Actor Josh Brolin (left), the son of actor James Brolin (right), is in the running for "Best Supporting Actor" for his role in 2008 "Best Picture" contender Milk. This comes on the heels of his critically-acclaimed role in 2007's No Country for Old Men. This is Josh's first Oscar nomination, a feat even his father, a two-time Golden Globe winner, has yet to accomplish. Will James's wife and Josh's stepmother Barbra Streisand be in the audience showing support? To see our posting on the Brolin boys, click here.
