    Default Wow...Transformers didnt win.

    I have lost ALL faith in the academy. Wow....truly...wow. Honestly...that won? I'm turning this shit off. Honestly...Golden Compass had the worst effects of all 3. I wouldn't have been pissed if Pirates won...but Golden Compass....fuck that.

    That's ridiculous. The Golden Compass? Are you serious? The movie didn't do anything groundbreaking. We saw the same stuff in Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and like twenty other movies over the last couple years. I would have even taken At World's End over Golden Compass. Davy Jones visual effects were pretty awesome. But come on. That's just fuckin' bullshit. The effects in Transformers were like the effects in Jurassic Park and T2... Groundbreaking. Stuff you haven't seen before.

    Typical fuckin' shit from the Academy.

    This is just monumental, just like the Patriots Super Bowl XLII loss. I mean I wouldn't have minded Transformers losing to Pirates cuz I like that movie just as much as Transformers. I saw the Golden Compass and wasn't all that impressed with the CGI. It wasn't even a hit. Usually the CGI awards go to the highest grossing film. So hard to believe.

    Guess we'll have to wait until Transformers 2. Usually the second one in the series wins it, like Spider-Man, Pirates, and Terminator off the top of my head.

    *deeeeep breath*

    FUCK DA ACADEMY!!!! Like I've said before, they don't know anything good when it's obviously in their face.

    Now, if TF doesn't win sound effects/sound editing categories.....the Academy is on my hit list.

    Buncha old farts anyways. They need new board members.

    *raises hands*

    PICK ME!!

    I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

    I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

    And on another note...perhaps the Oscars shouldn't have happened.

    Where's the tribute video? I'm ready to cry now.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    eh hem.

    I am heartbroken. Seriously. Golden Compass is another one of those "over use of blue screen" movies. Transformers should have won. THEY RAISED THE BAR!!!

    I have officially lost faith in the Acedemy.

    Kudos for the Visual Effects Society for giving Transformers the "Best Visual Effects in a Visual Effects Driven Motion Picture" award. We love you guys!

    Oh.

    Maji? (Really?)

    Wow.

    Maybe Academy considered this film just an action movie. They got the wrong idea.

    Honestly, I lost faith in the Academy a long time ago...but I don't remember what the deciding factor was.

    But this just reinforces my lost faith in 'em.

    And yes, the Visual Effects Society knows good effects when they see 'em!

    Seriously, the Golden Compass? A lot of green/blue screen effects. TF went farther.

    Buncha fuckin' idiots!

    Bourne Ultimatum for best sound editing? I don't mind that one too much. It was a great movie that had some great sound. But Transformers had some great sound editing, too.


    And it loses to Bourne for best sound mixing, too. Damn.


    Oh well, it's really best visual effects that really pisses me off. The others are a little tougher to call.

    Wow. Just... wow. A complete shut out. Damn.... It just tells you, ultimately, how out of touch and irrelevant the Academy Awards truly are.
