    Richard, I saw RUSH recently (based on your recommendation) and thoroughly enjoyed the film. I was spellbound for the whole movie. Do you think if should have been nominated for something. What category do think it should have been nominated in?

    Its a shame a sports true story like RUSH was snubbed. Richard got more right than I did, but at least I guessed Helium. Gravity took more than the movie is worth. It wasn't bad, but 7 Oscars good? I think not.
