    An Afterthought: SiCKO should have gotten best special effects. Only Michael Moore could use crazy visual tricks to make half a country believe his crap.
    But sir, your opinion is wrong.

    No, it should have won in the sound categories. It's the only way people could ever believe Michael Moore's obnoxiously loud mouth.

    Though this song was the film's only redeeming quality.

    Hanging guitars?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    *lameness*
    Ahh, say it ain't so! Once was one of my three favorites this year, along with Juno and Michael Clayton. And I think the hanging guitars are there because they were sort of abstractly recreating the scene in the movie where they play that song together in the music shop.

    That was my favorite part of the show. That little Czech girl coming out and getting her moment. You just know the director of the show could see the postmortem tomorrow being all about how he cut off a sweet little girl. I wonder if Stewart had anything to do with it as well...he seemed to have a personal affection for them.

    Well, he was one...30 years ago He annoys me lately too, although I liked him in Donnie Brasco.

    Overall I thought the major categories had deserving winners even if they weren't my personal preference. Mostly I'm just happy Paul Thomas Anderson didn't win. And even though No Country For Old Men isn't my favorite Coens movie, I will never begrudge them an award for pretty much anything.

    What do you have against Paul Thomas Anderson? I haven't seen any other movies directed by him, but I though There Will Be Blood was easily one of the best movies to come out in the last 10-15 years.

    Though it wasn't my favorite of the year, I actually enjoyed There Will Be Blood. But that's the first Paul Thomas Anderson movie I have liked. Normally I find his films to be overlong, maudlin and indulgent. And while he definitely has a strong cult following, I personally find bloated and indulgent films to be aesthetically displeasing. I'm not sure if I liked this one because Anderson has grown or because Daniel Day-Lewis was simply a force of nature.

    There's your reason. I'm going to remember his baptism scene for years to come.

    Loved seeing Marion Cotillard win, I really like it when people are overwhelmed by winning. I haven't seen that movie, but I heard she was amazing. Ellen Page was great too, but held back by the material. Diablo Cody shouldn't have won for writing Juno.

    At least the Coens finally won an Oscar. They've deserved one for quite some time.

    That was a great scene. I think based on just his acting though, I think my favorite scene was the one in the restaurant when his kid has just come back from boarding school and the oil executives from the other company are there. So many emotions in that one scene.

    Plainview: I want you to look over there.
    H.M. Tilford: Hello, Daniel...
    Plainview: Look over there. That's my son. You see? See?
    H.M. Tilford: Daniel...
    Plainview: You see him? You don't tell me how to raise my family. I told you not to tell me how to raise my family. So, what do you see?
    H.M. Tilford: I'm happy for you that everything...
    Plainview: I've made a deal with Union and my son is happy and safe and I'm taking care of him now. So you look like a fool, Tilford, don't you?
    H.M. Tilford: Yes.
    Plainview: I told you what I was gonna do.

    Great dialogue.
