Still think it's incredibly overrated; just an "okay" film.

The only problem is that "City of God" isn't Fernando Meirelles' debut film. He directed two features called "Domésticas" and "The Nutty Boy 2" previously.

Perhaps because it's his first in the US?

I think I had "The Cooler" on my list of nominated films in this category. Am I off the mark, or was this considered a debut film for him?
