Give me a fucking break. Even for the Slumdog haters you have to admit the music was fricking awesome.

i'm surprised synecdoche or wall e didn't take it. this is a pretty darn good score/i like it, but it's also pretty conventional. this must be the first time brion has lost in a year he wrote something.

What Kal said.
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 VERY surprised (and a bit disappointed) that Brion didn't win. I'm okay with DK winning, but it just seems like such a safe, by the numbers type of score.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I just can't justifiably say Slumdog because they play two versions of Paper Plans back to fucking back.

Jon Brion should've won.
