    Where is In the Loop? I thought the poster for that was really something.

    It seems that In The Loop is deliberately being ignored. I don’t know what happend to that film but it’s amazing and how it couldn’t have been nominated for a comedy GG is beyond me.

    That’s unfortunate because I really enjoyed that film. Maybe it will receive some Oscar love Feb. 2nd.

    Well, IFC never campaigns for their films, and if you don’t run a campaign, many awards organizations basically won’t consider the film. In a sane, logical world, Peter Capaldi would be one of the nominees for Best Supporting Actor.
