Am I the only one surprised that Persepolis didn't win any categories? Grant it Ratatouille was good but Perspolis was new and different. Ratatouille told the same story we've heard a million times (Though it did tell it better than most). How can we expect the film world to respect our medium when we continue to choose the same old films as the winner?
