I've no time for real notes but on that last award: great call. Friedberg has never been nominated by the Academy despite outstanding and memorable work in this category. He also did the honors for The Ice Storm, Far From Heaven and the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
How are you feeling about the Los Angeles honors...
