There's some good picks in there, even if the mighty Dynamo 5 got pipped to Best New. Nice to see Winter Soldier and Tony Stark holding their place, and Dark Knight is definitely a shoo in for best adaptation next year (the posters look quality; http://blog.newsarama.com/2007/12/04/the-dark-knight-teaser-poster-unveiled/). I'll be interested to see if a few names remain in next years nominations.

I was little disappointed by Tony Stark's win as Best Villain. He's been misguided this year but I wouldn't call him evil. I'm sure he'll be redeemed by the time the movie comes out though.
