Nice, the Oscar nominated film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. (sound mixing)

I would give it best picture before I would give it a sound award.  That movie raped my ears.

It is a rare case of a film with no redeeming qualities. If I had to guess I would guess it had the worst catering truck in film history. :D

It is a bit of a strange nomination. I don't doubt that the filmmakers spent many working hours on that movie, but I'd say the end product confusing mish-mash of metal pieces clanking against each other.

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

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs should have been there over an empirically bad film like Princess and the Frog, but Up will win anyway and that's all that matters. Though the nominations are good for something: they help to highlight certain films, like Secret of Kells that dropped under the radar. I really want to see that movie now.

Could we avoid stuff like this, has no place in the discussion and only invalidates your opinion and makes you look foolish.

lol. Everyone takes these things so seriously. Do you really think I meant a statement like that? I'm just pulling a FLY for fun. Princess and the Frog is still pretty bad though.

I can't speak for the quality of the film since I didn't see it, but man did that film ever come and go! Disney back to 2d animation. A black female character! I don't know anybody who saw it and it isn't even playing anymore. Didn't this come out in mid December or something?

The low point has to be best supporting actress. There are no great performances in it all. It's like a whole category of Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny.
I know you didn't like either of the films, and I didn't love them either, but I'd say Mo'Nique and Farmiga are both worthy nominees.

It's a good film, better than most other animated films from 2009.

I was never able to separate a component from the overall result.  You could make a sublimely filmed movie of someone taking a dump, but I still wouldn't give it best cinematography.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Farmiga is the best one for sure, and I hope she wins (The "meet cute" is one of the best scenes of the whole year imo). Monique was a cartoon in that movie. I dont get the love for her performance at all.

Overall it's just such a meh category.
