wow, really?
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Wow! I thought Coppola, Tarantino or Eastwood would win!

i thought THIS would be Tarantino for sure.  but i'm okay with Jackson taking it for his mammoth undertaking.  he didnt make the best film, but he put the most effort in.

Agreed. I always like to see QT winning something, but fuck it... Peter Jackson deserved it, for the three films, for a great achievement (and this comes from a very... uhm... from a guy who's not the biggest Rings fan in the world)

I'm hoping Eastwood gets it at the Oscars.  He did superb work.

eastwood already won, and even then it was really a lifetime achievement award.

Wow, some fascinating results when you look across the board at the Xixax Awards.

Jackson is a lock for the director Oscar, IMHO, but if you had asked me, I would have predicted that Xixax would have gone LOTR for film, but maybe Coppola for director.

Anyway, I wonder if we could see a director/film split at the Oscars on Sunday. Maybe PJ for director and Mystic River for film. ... Those are always the least satisfying moments.

no way in hell Mystic River wins best film, i think Lost in Translation and Return of the King are the only possibilities, as far as a split for best director/film...that is very possible, and probably just whichever way it goes

JC, no not that one

yeah, but if you make only OK films from 8 years, you dont really get my vote.
