    Nice to see Transformers right up there with Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Terminator, etc. Wow, who would have ever imagined this after the 1986 movie?

    I know. With the bias that comes with Bay's "action movie," I was at least expecting Pirates to take it. Then again, Compass seems more in line with what the Academy usually votes for.:(

    Got to be kidding me lol

    Just been watching the Oscar awards , i cant believe that Transformers got beat out by the golden compus and bourne ultimatum ... I seen the golden compus and it was nothing special (seen a bootleg cause i wouldnt pay to see it lol ) , it was the same old CGI that was thrown around in all the other flicks like shreck and stuff.. nothing special at all and that beat out the Effects of Transformers , one word FIXED.

    And then Bourne Untimatium beats it out for Sound mixing and sound editing .. Again one word FIXED ... The bourne movies are great movies but there was nothing special about that movie as well when it came to sound ..

    I knew transformers wouldnt win one of these , they hate Sci Fi movies..

    FIXED.

    Transformers wasn't A Good Movie.
    If A Good Movie is on the same level as another one, A Good Movie will get first consideration.

    Golden Compass was far from a good movie, I mean hell that movie made no profit. I mean it doesnt even sell toys and shit very well.

    Hmm. Saw all three movies and I can say that I really don't consider any of the to be worthy of winning Oscars. Transformers, Bourne Ultimatum and Golden Compass are all kind of good enough, but not great movies... so... whoever was voting probably just voted for the movie they liked most and didn't even consider why they should have voted... or what they were voting on exactly. :lol

    So sound mixer Kevin O'Connell lost AGAIN? Poor guy, he's been nominated 20 times without a win, and his mother died last year during the Oscars.
