Given the fact LTROI wasn't included anywhere else, it was always going to win this. But I think this is a very strong category, that's something we should remember. It's not just about the eventual winner. And I only nominated 2 pics in the first round, so you all did good methinks.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

I'm glad to see LTROI win this. Still disappointed it wasn't nominated for best pic, but a lot of people are barely getting to see it now.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

We didn't count his 4 hour tv movie, or films that didn't get a wide release.

Exactly.  Should have been nominated for best pic for sure.

I like FSM and all, but I don't get how it was nominated for this.

it got a wide release in sweden and was shown in a three hour long version movie. but i know what you mean and i'll accept it.
