Actually, my new next door neighbor is a member of The Academy.  She tell me she used to be an ADA and worked on The Sopranos and Sex in the City, also the movie The Manchurian Candidate among many other projects.  She is currently retired from that and is a single mother raising her two year old daughter.  I can't imagine anybody less like the general idea of an Academy voter.  But I suppose her votes carry equal weight with Charelton Heston's.

We recieved several packages for her when she was out which turned out to contain DVDs of the movies under review.  It's so cool.  I feel so connected.  LOL

I know one Academy voter and well, he sometimes is sort of an elitist.  He is not interested in anything genre related. He once had bootleg copies of the first LOTR movie made for some friends (No, he won't do that anymore. He almost got caught copying another film). Even though he was supposed to watch it along with the other Best Picture candidates, he didn't. He'd decided without seeing it that was no good.

 InnerSanctum, what did you think they left out?

 Monkey, those dvd screeners that the guy copied and Kara got for her neighbor are the ones that end up on pirate sites.  I always get a kick out of that.

Not surprised with Avengers getting a nom for visual effects but TDKR should have got one or two technical noms. Those that are against TDKR forget that it was a well produced movie (even if you didnt like the plot, voice, etc).

Oh well, TDK had its day against IM ...

This is a good list.  Great actors and great movies.  I'm really excited to see this, well I always am, but more than normal.
