The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
, yeah? That's just the surprise we needed to keep the race somewhat interesting. While this in no way gives Jesse James a spot in the Top 5 Best Picture contenders...it's nice to see some variety. But what I'm more surprised about it that the SFCC obviously liked No Country for Old Men enough to award the Coens Best Director...err, Directors?, but still pick Affleck over Bardem. They must have really loved Jesse James. Also, unrelated, but did anyone catch why I chose the color I did for the "SFCC" on the Jesse James picture?

Well, that was a good guess, anonymous. I appreciate it. Actually because it's the color of the Golden Gate Bridge...but yeah, call Ripley's. I'm sure they'll be impressed. I know I sure was.
