i really would've thought Kiss Kiss Bang Bang could've ATLEAST made it into this category over Crash.   :yabbse-undecided:
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Especially considering that neither Crash nor Capote are debut features for Paul Haggis (Red Hot, 1993) or Bennett Miller (The Cruise, 1998).

This is the only one I really wanted to see win.

I finally saw this over the weekend and I'm very glad it won over my actual nomination.

We went with the ruling that it had to have a theatrical release (Haggis), and was a not a doc (Miller).

Very happy with this turnout.
