but, Zodiac just came at the wrong time...that's it...
Yeah, February can't be a worst time to release a great movie.

Radiohead rocker Jonny Greenwood and Eddie Vedder both missed out on a Best Score Oscar nomination for There Will Be Blood and Into The Wild, because both soundtracks were ruled ineligible. Many Oscar watchers were left stunned when the rock stars' movie score efforts were seemingly ignored by voters, but Oscar rules left both stars compositions out of the running. Greenwood's music for There Will Be Blood missed out because officials at the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences decided that a large part of it was not written specifically for the film, which picked up eight Oscar nominations on Tuesday . A proportion of the soundtrack was taken from Greenwood's Popcorn Superhet Receiver composition, which was commissioned by the BBC, and won him a British Composer Award in 2007. And Pearl Jam singer Vedder's soundtrack for Sean Penn Into The Wild was also deemed ineligible for an Academy Award nomination - because the score is too "song-based."



Haha, how ridiculous is that.

That is BS because the score to There Will Be Blood is one of the best ever, IMO.

Seriously, how the **** does Norbit get an Oscar nomination and Zodiac doesn't get a single one?

Visually stunning? Only if you like shakey wobble cam and extremely tight close-ups for every action sequence and cartoonish CGI that makes robots look like scrapmetal in a blender.

really?

Transformers was a visually stunning movie with great CGI...it's kindof hard to make robots look anything but cartoonish...but they pulled it off with ease...I think it's deserving of it's oscar nod...
