  1. ...From when does this take place...if WALL-E is eligible is Dark Knight? Is Ratatouille? but what really makes me angry...what earned no nominations is the PHENOMENAL score for the very underrated near masterpiece "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" was robbed of a cinematography and score win last earns no score recognition on this lsit or any sad...


  2. it's a very strange thing, it seems to be the end of last year and the beginning of this year...i'm really not sure

  3. Go THere will be Blood! and WALLE and others but mainly those two
