For a guy that loves visuals as much as I do, I don't want to vote for any of the Best Shot nominees. They're all good, but not 'Best of the Year' in my mind. Anyone else disappointed like I am?

I'm not sure. The A Serious Man Nominee was my number one on the ballot and I really like the Raised Paws shot, but other then that they're quite lacklustre. I was more disappointed with the Comedic scenes nominees though.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I feel like for both categories, people just got too connected with their favorites films and simply voted for their favorite shot/scene from their favorite films. It's not an awful thing, but it's not ideal for the category either.

If it makes you feel better I voted for the best film is each category. Turns out that, for the most part, the best film also happens to be my favorite.

You know, I just realized I forgot to vouch for a potential soundtrack nomination that I would have gladly fought for: Nine.

pixote, were there many (or any) nominations for it in the preliminary ballots you received?
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

The Kate Hudson song automatically disqualifies it from any consideration.

That's one of the best ones in the film! How could you...

Nine received:

- three votes for Soundtrack
- one vote for Daniel Day-Lewis
- three votes for Marion Cotillard
- one vote for Adapted Screenplay
- one vote for Art Direction-
- one vote for Ensemble Cast

Five of those were on one ballot; four on another ballot; and the remaining two split between two more ballots.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Essentially, one extra vote from me wouldn't have changed the dynamic much. Fair enough. Thank for the reply.

Yeah, it finished nineteenth in the Soundtrack category (tied with Love Exposure).
