‘Slumdog’ tonight, too?

Posted by · 11:27 am · February 15th, 2009

In addition to the ADG award “Slumdog Millionaire” took yesterday, the Cinema Audio Society also bestowed it with their award in something of a surprise (I’d say).  I usually go to that ceremony, but with it being Valentine’s Day, other duties beckoned.

I will, however, be at tonight’s ACE Eddies ceremony, so look for a from-the-floor posting when the winner is announced.  Are we expecting anything other than “Slumdog” here?  And for comedy, I don’t know.  “Tropic Thunder” maybe?  Personally, I’d give it to “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”

Pretty quiet for the most part otherwise, but let us all wish Guy a happy birthday.  I expect he’s face deep in his 10th pint across the pond by now.  Better be, anyway.

    As much as I loved Slumdog Millionaire, it did not have the best sound of the year. Wall-E and TDK’s sounds are a greater feat imho. I see both of them splitting the Oscar sound catgories, that is unless Slumdog fever is waaay too much that voters just pencil it in on everything without giving careful thought to the specific category.

    I suspect “In Bruges” may win the comedy category. I would have nominated it for the Oscar if I had my way. Near-perfect comic cutting.

    Oh yeah, ASC is tonight, too. I can almost guarantee a Slumdog win there…

    The Slumdog train will continue tonight. ACE and ASC are in the bag. I’m not entirely surprised by the CAS win, but my money was on TDK.

    And, of course, happy birthday, Guy!

    No surprises left I think. And many happy returns, Guy.

    My very sore head is at least somewhat cheered by your birthday shout-outs. Thanks all!
