With my one vote in the poll, In the Loop is off to a landslide victory!

I'd be interested to see the break down of votes for this if it resulted in a 3-way tie!!! I mean how close were the other noms to being in the tie?

Well, somehow, Inglorious Basterds walks out with some recognition.

It's because of the split choice between A Serious Man and In The Loop, and then Inglo Baster collects the run off.  You guys are repeatedly disappointing what I look forward to in movies.

Maybe you could go browse YouTube or something for a couple hours until you sober up, and then come back.

I rewatched In The Loop last week because I was so sure I missed something the first time, but I don't think I did.  Great dialogue, but not a great film.  Felt like a few hilarious episodes of a TV show strung together than a satisfying film.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I imagine, that the best screen play, perhaps, could be, may be and is possible to be, for i did not read any of them before seeing the films, like many people here i am sure, is... um your guess is just as good as mine... lol
every time you find yourself reading this, think of other great things you could be doing... :)

First off, Youtube is waning so much in interest to me that it's really just a viral video playground and simultaneously a cemetary for entirely forgettable minutes of laughter.  We all know this.  It never really exceeded that level in the first place.

Secondly, when I sober up, Xixax is the last place I want to be.

The existential dread just weighs too heavily on you, or what?

Nah, I love this place.  I actually almost never post here drunk or high, I just happened to be drunk when I saw the awards were up and I felt more ardently opinionated for one reason or another.
