The best Art Direction of the year was Two Lovers. For real.

I would like to see Inglourious Basterds win but it has little chance.

From what little I have seen, The White Ribbon looks pretty stunning.
Yep. I haven't seen it either but it looks beautiful from the trailer.

I'm really glad HP6 got a nom too, though I doubt it has a chance

Its beautiful, and the cinematography really fits well with the tone, setting, and story of the film.
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.

I don't like complaining about movies I like not getting nominated, but Lance Acord not getting nominated for Cinematography for Where The Wild Things Are seems a little ridiculous. Even though I left it off my ballot for Filmspots(art house picks filled up, was my number 6), it was absolutely one of the best shot films of the year, and it had a chance.

He was brought on in the beginning to develop the story ideas into a more fully structured narrative.
