And once again the Academy does a really poor job. No mention of Dear Zachary in the documentary category, nomination of Benjamin Button (which from what I hear really isn't that good), completely ignored Let the Right One In...good job, guys. Good job.

I was surprised about Kate Winslet not being nominated for Revolutionary Road.

Baader Meinhof Complex gets a nomination, while Let the Right One In doesn't. There truly is no justice in Oscar nominations.

I agree with you both that Let the Right One In should have at least received a nomination. It was not a perfect film but it resonated, and several months later I still think about it and the characters.
