[b]exit Syriana from the award season .....[/b]
I am glad to see that Syriana has been widely absence from a majority of the end-of-year honors. Calling the pre-release hype over-rated would be trite, but in the end the movie turned out to be a simplistic and unimaginitive (much like Crash, which I also did not like). Oil and the corruption behind it .... an imporatant topic, yes, but Syriana does not tell a complelling story (minus the kid who converts to Islam). As for the torture scene with Clooney, it was mild at best, and the direction & editing of that scene are another example of how poorly the movie's story is told: no supspense, no urgency, just routine.

Way to nominate Sin City for a couple, being both good and truely original it deserves everything that it gets. I'm also happy that Crash, King Kong, Walk the Line, Cinderella Man, Batman Begins, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Downfall got some nods.

[b]Online nominations - sins of omission and commisio[/b]
I am unsure just what Catherine Keener contributed to Capote. I can only surmise it was a nomination for her cumulative work during the year. If anyone can actually hum a theme from Gustavo Santoalallo's score for Brokeback Cowboy, I'd like to hear it. It's nice to see recognition for Joan Allen, Keira Knightley and Naomi Watts. Jake Gyllenhaal's is no more a supporting role than Paul Giamatti's sidekick in Sideways was last year. Compare Gyllenhaal's onscreen time with Keener's. I did not like Sin City, but it maybe did deserve nominations for cinematography and editing. Should have made the list - the score for Charlie, King Kong for Picture, Jeff Daniels and Russell Crowe for Best Actor, Ed Harris for S. Actor, Thandie Newton for S. Actress.
