2) Daniel Day-Lewis got robbed in Gangs of New York. His portrayal of the Butcher is one of the best/most complete performances of a character I've ever seen... in my opinion, Adrien Brody got it because voters were sympathetic to the whole Holocaust deal rather than his performance being truly amazing.
3) Johnny Depp and George Clooney should NOT have gotten nominations for Sweeny Todd and Michael Clayton, respectively... seriously wtf was that?
4) I didn't realize Dustin Hoffman had gotten so many awards / nominations.
That's it for now, and yes I realize these are all academy award related... I was just looking up shit right now about it.
