    Eh, to hell with both of you Scrooges. The best is winning for a reason this year.

    Yes, to all of you realists. The most overrated is indeed winning for no reason this year.

    The script is not deserving, and is probably only surpassed by the undeserved SAG.

    A good film, otherwise.

    I am rooting for it to lose best picture and director.

    IT IS WRITTEN said...

    Of course it is deserving.

    What should have won instead ?

    Frost / nixon : Nobody watched it , those who did already forgot about it.

    Milk : Even a lot of gays do not like it.

    Ben bottom : UTTER CRAP .

    Visit this site :

    The dark knight , wrestler and WALL -E are all good , but not nominated .

    So , yes , it deserves it.


    If you do not like it , STOP WATCHING , dumb fools.

    Nope, not getting old at all.

    Slumdog Millionaire was clearly the only movie made this year. Nothing else was eligible or deserving. Why even have other nominees? Or why have these awards? We should just give it one all-inclusive award so as not to get everyone else anxious, excited, or hopeful.

    This has been the lamest awards season in years.

    save your tears you Slumdog knockers. The acting categories (apart from Heath’) are quite interesting this year, so can you focus on them if youre bored??

    and if youve read Q & A and seen the movie, the script is actually much better than the book which is no mean feat

    So, IT IS WRITTEN, I have to ask: what evidence do you have to suggest that the “gays” don’t like Milk? It would seem that a critically-acclaimed biopic about one of the great martyrs of their cause would be very popular with them. It certainly is with GLAAD, which nominated it for Best Feature Film – Wide Release. Sorry for dogging you on this, but that claim is very hard to believe.

    Props for the campaign against The Curious Case of Forrest Gump, however. Keep spreading the truth!

    All the nominees suck this year. Not an interesting one in the bunch. I don’t know how a group could be so uncreative. My interest in the Oscars this year is ………………………..

    “Milk” wasn’t even a Scripter nominee (it’s an original screenplay) so I’m not sure where you pulled that from, It Is Written.

    It’s just baffling that Slumdog Millionaire is the movie to pull off the entire HFPA/SAG/PGA/DGA/WGA/Scripter/Oscar sweep. No film has ever done that. Why did anybody else even bother releasing a movie this year?

    Dario said...

    I concur with Glenn. It deserved some of those awards, and it will deserve the Oscar (in this line-up, that is). But the PGA? The SAG? Seems a bit like overkill.

    Will anyone remember Slumdog Millionaire in ten years? I doubt it.

    Will anyone remember Milk? F/N? Button? TDK? Wall-E? I doubt it!

    (see how easy it is to make vague statements about the distant future?)

    James D. said...

    It isn’t easy to make vague statements when you are completely wrong. WALL-E and The Dark Knight will most definitely be remembered in ten years. I suspect Benjamin Button and Milk will be, but on a smaller scale.

    Glenn said...

    They will be remembered, but so will most movies that made a tonne of cash (it’s just easier), it’s whether they will be held in such great esteem.

    For all we know people in 2059 could be talking about how “The Reader” was the best film made this century and how the Academy were crazy for not giving it Best Picture.
