...and just how many of these nominations have you seen? I can't believe you would merely list the nominations and not comment on them.

Well, since I've only seen one of the films that were mentioned, I didn't feel qualified to comment.

1. Borat - adapted from what?

2. Paul Haggis is one of the least popular figures among film bloggers I've read. He's regarded as a dumb-downer who paints in broad strokes....

3. Peter Morgan (who won the Golden Globe) also adapted The Last King of Scotland
