Another great podcast. Some of my thoughts...

I also, like The Mad Hatter, really enjoyed The Informant! I think you're probably right that Damon's supporting nod is more of a testament to this role than it is to Invictus because they just didn't have room for him in the Best Actor field.

As far as the Oscars go, I'm similarly indifferent this year, but even more strangely, my favorite films were nominated, and I'm still not that passionate. Last year, I was crazy passionate about The Dark Knight and The Wrestler, and this year, while I still love Inglourious Basterds, The Hurt Locker, and Up in the Air, I find myself not really caring about whether they win Oscars or not. It's kind of a weird feeling, and I'll be curious to see if it changes next year.

As far as other snubs go, I totally agree with you about Carter Burwell. The score for Where the Wild Things Are was brilliant. Such an emotional film. If you haven't seen A Single Man though, that is the best original score of the year.

So I listened to this episode while driving to my folks' yesterday, and got a smile from the shout-out.

I stand by my assessment of THE INFORMANT! and was drawn to it for it's outstanding use of style (so much of this sucker is blatantly early-90's), and the way in which Damon's character is so richly played. This is a guy who exists in a reality all his own, but can't seem to understand that.

That was what drew me in. The way he barrels through like a white-collared bull in a china shop, and seems to have a movie playing in his head that no one else can see.

Gotta admit though, far as Soderbergh movies go, it was much better than THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE!

Great 'cast buddy - keep up the good work.

@Danny I still need to see Single Man. Just haven't had time to try and hunt it down.

@Mad It's ok you can like The Informant. I'll stand besides my indifference :)
