    Forgetting Sarah Marshall Fortunately!!! It’s a bad movie, my opinion 5/1.

    Burn After Reading is good, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, and Screenplay missing.

    I haven’t seen Dear Zachary, but it might be worthy of a nomination. None of the others you mentioned should have been recognized. Maybe Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading, but he got his nomination elsewhere. Maybe The Fall, for cinematography, but I haven’t seen it. I think Oscar did a pretty good job this year. I would like to have seen Kristin Scott Thomas on the list, but darned if I know who I would have dropped to give her a place in the final 5.

    Paranoid Park was a 2007 movie I believe.

    It was excellent though.
