Are Skandies voters always such suckers for mediocre music montages? Or - having not seen I'm Not There, Regular Lovers, or Southland Tales - do these scenes function a hell of a lot better inside the film than as standalone pieces?

The saddest part is that the best musical number of the year failed to make the cut.

There is no excuse for that opening number not making the Skandie cut. I am going to find everyone who didn't vote for it and tear their wives in half.

I wish I had seen that opening number before the deadline.
