    I'm gonna check it out at 11pm. It's on the bbc station. I just checked out the IMDB site there.

    Not one single nomination for ROTS?????? that's worse than the Oscars. I know most of it was filmed in Sydney; but are you telling me that no Brits were involved in any way.

    just an absoulute travesty.

    The film was a greater travesty.

    My only problem with ROTS is how many people think it is without flaws.

    Sith does deserve to get nominated for an Oscar, but I dislike to amount of praise it gets, while other scores don't get enough listening time due to the fact that this is, in fact, a Star Wars board.

    I don't think that affects the nominations. Look at Brokeback and Crash, they got loads of BAFTA noms.

    Sith wasn't that great.

    But Sith was overlooked for score and cinematography, which really should have been locks. And not even a sound design or costume design nod? The Academy went out of its way to snub Lucas this year, and it shows. In no way is it worthy of any directing, acting, or writing awards, but at the very least, the score, cinematography, and costumes should have been nominated.

    ooooh ouch. you hurt me. we've got two BAFTA's - they're British Acadamy of Film and Television Awards. Sort of UK Oscars meets Grammies etc ..



    Williams has won awards for Star Wars scores before remember? they're not gonna give sequals with ostensibly the same core score more awards are they?!! that would be unfair ! Same for SFX etc (although its gotta be said - the PT is not the strongest of movies out there for SFX)...anyway thats off topic..

    I really do not look at the awards, for all I care, they could say Revenge of the Sith is the worst score of all time, and it wouldn't change my opinion on the album. It's opinion based, why do we even listen to the Oscars, or these movies that win these awards? You have the right to turn off the TV, to give no attention to this show, the only way they get power, is if you support it, that's what I never got when a film like ROTS didn't get a lot of awards, and a lot of people complained all the time about the critics, not being fair, etc.
