Are we having an accidental Oscar moment colonel? Unlike the other section you seem to have one name seperated from the others on each nomination list, should we be running to the bookies to place our bets before the awards are annnounced?
BTW where's my friggin nomination, you have everything save short film in there, or are you saying that you saw a better short than the one you were in last year? ( runs away sobbing like a little girl!)

I see the "one" glitch has been fixed since I last posted Colonel. What about the other oversight?

No, if my HTML coding was better that gap wouldn't have appeared. If your powers of observation were better then you'd notice the lists there are in alphabetical order, favouring no one*. Nevertheless it's now fixed.

In the last year you showed me "The Silent City" that was certainly superior to our little film, but it was made in '06. No, despite having you direct them and me starring in them. Short films aren't "real" entertainment, not even that one with all the CGI and the jet in the tunnel, that was awesome! - but they're not mainstream enough for such prestigious awards... yet. Hopefully you can change that?

*With the exception of [as far as I know of] the Best Supporting Actor category where Campbell and Downey were juxtaposed but that was only noticed after the graphics were completed - they took 4 days - I wasn't delaying another day.
