Isn't it odd that "A Christmas Carol" was completely shut out? It's a great film, with some great animated effects. I don't understand why it was not nominated for anything.

Can't get on board with that one at all I'm afraid. I am no fan of A CHRISTMAS CAROL.

Haha not really. I just didn't like Zemeckis' modern flourishes. The chase scene in the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come sequence and mini-Scrooge really turned me off.
