    Well, I stand corrected. Eastwood was snubbed! Too bad. He was awesome in Gran Torino playing a racist Korean war vet.

    Nice to see David Fincher(The Game, Se7en, Fight Club) finale get some credit as a great director.

    Way to go Downey!! NBK and A Scanner Darkly were awesome!!
    Plus he was great in Zodiac.

    As for Ritchie, I'm still amazed he managed to get Madonna to PAY HIM a cool $95M in change... Way to go Ritchie... LOL

    By the way, someone mentioned a Clive Owen film, one of my absolute favorites of his, besides "Closer" was an awesome flick with him and another one of my favorite actors Malcom McDowell called "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead." Check it out guys. Worth the rent, trust me.

    "Fur" with Downey and Nicole Kidman is worth renting...very unusual.

    And he WAS Tony Stark. 'Iron Man' IMHO is the best Marvel comic book movie ever.

    If he wins for 'Tropic Thunder'--which he should--that would be sweet beside his 'Chaplin' Oscar.

    His father Robert Downey Sr was also an amazing director with a unique imagination. Rent 'Putney Swope' and 'Pound' if you can find them. I met Bob Sr in NYC years ago...the apple does not, as they say, fall far from the tree.
