Van Helsing is a horror film???? Who ever thought that was worthy of nominiating for anything???? It's absolutely terrible!
TotallyPegged
Yeah, why is Van Helsing nominated for a best horror film?

Oh no, Dawn is nominated.. This will be a tough competition!

I thought SAW was very good actually. Although i was pissed at the time, and watching a rather bad pirate copy with poor quality subtitles that a) you couldn't turn off, and b) where clearly done by someone who only had a passing knowledge of english as they were so often completely wrong, or just had phonetic spelling of words which obviously weren't in the person's pocket english dictionary!!

But yes, COME ON SHAUN!!!

GO SHAUN GO SHAUN GO SHAUN GO SHAUN!!!

SHOW THEM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF! biggrin.gif

It would appear Shaun has lost out again. I don't know who did win but as there's no sign of Simon and Edgar in the press room photos holding an award I'm taking that to mean they didn't win sad.gif

They look very happy in arrivals though. tongue.gif

Yea the boys' done good! biggrin.gif

I'm not being funny though, but why the hell wasn't Edgar up for best director?
YuriX2
All we need now is any coverage or comments from the boys.

What was the acceptance speech like? How do they feel going toe-to-toe with the others and winning?

Anyone any ideas how to find out?

Makes me uber impatient to see 'Hot Fuzz' developing....
