I think that's all, but Irglova and the editing will probs make my ballot too. And maybe two more songs, but you can't go All the Way Down the ballot with one movie, although When Your Mind's Made Up, I suppose there's no point in trying to fight it. I guess that If You Want Me to do make an honest ballot, I'll just be stuck torturing myself trying to find a way to fit seven songs into five slots.
Reaaaal big FYC for this man right here who gives possibly one of my all-time favorite performances in this film (also FYC to the film itself which should be a shoo-in for Original Screenplay at the LEAST):
(Film by the way is Lars and the Real Girl for those who still ought to check it out)
Other FYCs: Atonement for just about everything, but for the love of God, Score and Cinematography at LEAST. And let's get ALL three Brionys into Supporting Actress! Zodiac, duh. But shout-out to John Carroll Lynch for Supporting Actor. stephen back me up Sunshine in all, but VFX at least. Gone Baby Gone for all, but don't forget about a double nomination for Casey this year (both in Lead preferably but I know some of y'all are weird and put him Supporting for Assassination ). 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days for all top eight, but mostly shout-out to Anamaria Marinca. The Tracey Fragments for Ellen Page. Enchanted for Original Song (mainly "So Close") and Amy Adams. Persepolis for Animated and Foreign. 30 Days of Night for Make-up.
About a billion others I'd throw out there in such a great year, but these are the big ones for me (that aren't obvious like No Country or Hot Fuzz).
I always forget about this because I didn't have the category in my own line-ups until very recent, but what are we thinking for Choreography?
The Bourne Ultimatum seems like a shoo-in. Probably Hot Fuzz as well, at least for the final third of the film. I'm considering Atonement if only for that ballsy long take, but I know it's kind of dumb to choose a movie simply for that. What else?
Maybe for musicals we have Enchanted and Across the Universe?
Oh how could I be so stupid. Shoot 'Em Up easily needs to make this category. For further evidence (sorry for the shit quality):

just gonna throw this in here mateys, whatever any of us may think of Pirates 3, its techs were phenomenal and absolutely deserve consideration, especially for costumes, makeup and production design (the Singapore sets alone should make it a lock).
I know that it's super late, but can we get Juno in for costume design? Great costumes aren't just frilly dresses and dusty cowboy outfits. The best costuming is stuff that helps define a character. Seeing the outfits in Juno is like peering into the personalities of everyone, from Juno in her jackets and jeans, to Bleeker in those yellow shorts, to the flannel shirts of her father or the sweaters of her stepmother, to the business casual attire of Mark and Vanessa. It's perfect costuming and deserves to win, not just be nominated.
