Yes Scott we in Iowa have film critics to. Shocking I know. I was pleasantly surprised to see David Cronemberg pick up best director in Chicago for A History of Violence. He seems to have been neglected this season and I feel he did a great job with that film. As far as my home state goes I?m happy with Ang Lee to. I have not seen Brokeback Mountain but I?m a huge Ang Lee fan and I hope he wins the Academy Award.
Although if Cronenberg won it I would be happy to.
