It seems to me this ceremony is much zippier than last year, so I went back and checked, and indeed, it seems as though we've done several more awards so far.
Now we're on Best Sound Editing. Mr. Movie picked "The Bourne Ultimatum" (though I'm surprised he didn't pick "Transformers."
Hooray for Mr. Movie! He got this one right! We're up to 4-5 in his picks. Oh no! Something is going wrong with the sound while they present the sound awards. Oh, the irony.
Now we're on to Best Sound Mixing. Mr. Movie picked "Transformers," which I think includes Kevin O'Connell, who has been nominated 19 times and has never won. When pressed if he thought "Transformers" really could be an Oscar Winning movie, he confidently said, "Yes."
Could it be? Could "Transformers" be an Oscar-winning movie? Alas, no. This one goes to "The Bourne Ultimatum" too.
Speaking of which, "The Bourne Ultimatum" means I can never walk through Waterloo Station without looking around for trained assassins in the moving advertisements.
Mr. Movie is now 4-6 in his picks. We've got 14 categories to go, but we've got a Big One now: Best Actress.
