One Nomination. Best Makeup design. Isn't that something? I'd still give it to Narnia.

Best Makeup Design?

Please tell me it isn't for Palpatines transformation when he finally turns to the Emperor!

It jsut goes to the makeup designers. I suppose it would be for ALL the makeup in the movie. But really, no Visual Effects nomination, no sound mixing or editing, no score, no nothing....just the makeup was Oscar-worthy.

BAH!!! George Lucas say critics SMASH Star Wars. Critics stupid! What critics know that Lucas no know??? Lucas know People's Choice has spoken! People know!!! Lucas know!!!

I'm bummed that Williams wasn't nominated for ROTS, even if he was nominated for Munich. The Score in ROTS was indeed Oscar-worthy. Certainly the best SW score Since ESB.

I'm not so sure that even Williams was Oscar worthy for Sith. Yes, the man is a music God, but when I bought the soundtrack I heard a lot of music re-hashing from previous films. Like when Palps and Yoda are fighting in his office you can hear the same music from ESB when Vader is throwing stuff at Luke to knock him off balance. *sigh* That was just disapointing. Couldn't Williams have used something new for that scene rather than an obvious "cut and paste" job?

I suppose all those arty faggots at the oscars will throw just about everything at Brokeback(side) Mountain then.

I was very much torn on the rehashing stuff. The nostalgia buff in me (an angle that Lucas constantly milk despite his cries that the original trilogy should be viewed after this) was like, "Cool, I love that piece." But I couldn't help thinking, "Well, that seems a bit lazy." I haven't reached a conclusion about that.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Maybe he is kev! And maybe HLF really is Shim! And maybe Stinky really is Jay! And maybe I'm really Dayv! You might be on to something, Adam! It's all one big conspiracy! Maybe everyone on this board is the same person! Maybe you just happened to stumble upon Jay's personal multiple-personality-playground!

Who, according to starkiller's philosophy, would also be Jay. So... no go.

It's amazing that Sith didn't get a special effects nomination. Perhaps they consider the stuff from Sith to be animation and not special effects? I dunno. Either way, George must be annoyed at the lack of nominations in the technical categories.
George Lucas was seduced by the dark side. The OOT ceased to exist in his mind and became the Special Editions...." "They're more maching now than movies. Twisted and evil."

Dude! I'm not Starkiller! I was just looking for another avatar so I didn't look like kev and Rikter. Maybe I should go back to it.

And, back on the topic I started, I too thought that ROTS would be nominated for at least one of the technical awards. Maybe looks aren't everything.

Well, I understand the lack of nomination for special effects. It's not that they're bad, but they simply aren't revolutionary.
See "bullet-time" for example, it was really new, as well as the SW OT at its time. PT and ROTS just take "regular" effects, but put 'em to a higher level, that's all.
