Denied At The Oscars

Now that the 2006 Academy Awards are over, note that though Martin Scorsese may be the most conspicous ongoing Oscar omission, spare a thought for poor Kevin O'Connell who continues to toil unheralded and yes, unawarded. Memoirs Of a Geisha is his 18th nomination (for sound mixing) and he was robbed yet again. His past nominations are:

Spiderman 2 (2004) -- Nominee, Sound Mixing

Spiderman(2002) -- Nominee, Sound

Pearl Harbor (2001) -- Nominee, Sound

The Patriot (2000) -- Nominee, Sound

Armageddon (1998) -- Nominee, Sound

The Mask of Zorro (1998) -- Nominee, Sound

Con Air (1997) -- Nominee, Sound

The Rock (1996) -- Nominee, Sound

Twister (1996) -- Nominee, Sound

Crimson Tide (1995) -- Nominee, Sound

A Few Good Men (1992) -- Nominee, Sound

Days of Thunder (1990) -- Nominee, Sound

Black Rain (1989) -- Nominee, Sound

Top Gun (1986) -- Nominee, Sound

Silverado (1985) -- Nominee, Sound

Dune (1984) -- Nominee, Sound

Terms of Endearment (1983) -- Nominee, Sound

What was that about "if at first you don't succeed .." again?
