I thought "There Will Be Blood" should have won Best Picture. "No Country for Old Men" was good, but not as good as TWBB. "No Country for Old Men" should have been named "There Will Be Blood - Lots of It!" "There Will Be Blood" should have been called something else. - maybe that would have made it more popular - who knows?

It wasnt the Coens philosphical approach its Cormac McCarthys whos other book "the road" is also becoming a film.

I agree.Excellent movie.I didn't care much for the gory scenes as I was mostly intrigued by Coens'philosophical approach on human nature and existence.Especially the end was quite powerful.The pessimistic dream sequences,the inevitable evil,the absence of closure...so simple,so real.

i'll be the voice of dissent: i saw it yesterday and honestly, didn't like it. it's not that i didn't 'get it' but i thought it was too graphically gory and it ended in a weird place. every time it got to a place where i thought it would end, it kept going, and then ended when i didn't expect it to. i can't even tell you if TLJ's second dream was supposed to be significant b/c i was wondering when it was going to end. i think if it had ended when antoine was leaving the wife's mother's house (when he looked down at his shoes), that would have been a much better ending. i generally like the coen's work--really enjoyed fargo--but i just didn't walk away from this movie feeling anything but disgust from the graphic violence/gore and how it kinda dragged on. a lot of people at the theater i was at felt the same way.

I loved No Country For Old Men, I think the people that didn't like it just didn't get it or were expecting too much from it over all the awards it has gotten. I think it makes it more interesting when people don't agree on the movie that wins.

I thought the film was really great but my vote was for Atonement.

i'm indifferent - i think that it's probably deserved the award but i am still partial to atonement - so oh well.

I've only seen 'Juno' or 'Atonement' of this list, but knowing the quality of Coen Bros' past movies, I'm sure they deserved it.

I can see why NCFOM won but I would've Loved to see Juno winning.

One of my fav too but Atonement and There will be blood were better in my opinion. Still they all the others awards for this movie were deserved!

I really found this year's Oscars to be quite boring actually. I expected them to go all out like at the Grammy Awards so it was pretty disappointing. (I really wanted Juno to win hehe) :P
