Well, for this year, the films had to have been released during November and after that to be qualified to have been nominated.

But, I also started the AAA much earlier, so yeah for the next event, Little Miss Sunshine can be nominated. Smile

Also, Hobodoken, did you happen to vote? Just wondering is all.

So yeah. Also I'm dropping it for Memoirs of a Geisha too. Good film (that's right, I said it) with great cinematography. Although Ziyi Zhang had a much better performance in 2046 (without all the pwetty Japanese costumes) and Michelle Yeoh killed it here.

You know, it was really hard writing the summary for Syriana. It tried to hard to be somethin' so complex, even though for me it wasn't. Doesn't really help that I fell asleep towards the end but from what I saw, good film and a great cast as well.
