2. And now for something sorta related--what in the HELL is the music division of the Academy thinking excluding There Will Be Blood's phenomenal, unforgettable, strikingly unique, and haunting score from Oscar nomination?? I'm not lying when I say that Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood's composition is perhaps one of the most effective pieces of music ever made for a movie, and it is a great injustice that due to some minor technicality (like, say, a few bars weren't composed specificially for the picture) he won't get proper recognition for his genius here. I know I didn't mention it in my review, but seriously folks, you'll understand what I mean by this score when you hear it.

We'll happily take your whiskey, your bagpipes, and your hot men in kilts, but you can keep your vomit sausage. Thanks!
