I think the lack of screenpay nomination was telling. Any idea if a someone has *ever* won best picture without being nominated for one of the screenplay awards? (finally made it back far enough on wikipedia. Looks like the Titanic was the last film to do so)
I think the awards it won painted a accurate picture: It was a stunning work of sound, art and directing but wasn't the best all-around film.
And yeah, between Amy and Tina doing the Golden Globes and Ellen the movie awards rocked this year
