Guess you guys should've done a better job pushing it around nomination time.

It had amazing set design, but I didnt think the cinematography was anything special.

It was in a tough position. Not in theaters and not on DVD. Oh well. I'll still know that it's the best.

I guess. Seemed to me like a lot of people saw it.

You can't complain about a film's "tough position" when it gets nominated for Best Picture.  C'mon.  If enough people saw it for that nomination, enough people saw it for Cinematography.  Personally, while I loved the film, I didn't see enough special about the cinematography, especially compared to White Ribbon and A Serious Man.

It's not a competition or anything, but I think Colin Farrell is just as good as Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart. They're both great, anyway.

this.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

It is tough for a cinematography award. If you cant see it in a theater or get screenshots people will forget how good it looked. This doesn't present a problem with the other awards, but the visuals definitely fade in a viewer's memory unless reminded.

I didn't see Bright Star in a theater, and didn't see screenshots since watching the film, but it still took home my cinematography vote.

Special effects is not the same thing as visual effects, and you're wrong.
