They got the important award, and that was Best Score. No contest.
Anyway... about the McKellan-related award, I'm less peeved about it now. Maybe it would have bothered me less if the guy that *got* the award in that category had been someone I'd even *heard* of, from a movie I recognized.
Whenever a previously-unheard-of something-or-other sweeps the award out from under something I was rooting for, I wonder... is it just that I don't get out enough (which given where I am, is entirely possible), or am I right and do large portions of Hollywood currently suck?
