And the nominees were:

"The Ides of March"
"War Horse"
"The Descendants"
"The Help"

Okay, so why six nominees in this category and five in everything else?

Exactly who was shoehorned in there? Nevertheless, congratulations to director Alexander Payne and his cast and crew for their win for "The Descendants."

And congratulations to the producers of the show for finishing on time, although throwing Harrison Ford on stage literally as soon as we came back from the commercial break to barely introduce the nominees was a bit undignified. Still, well done everyone, including Ricky Gervais for some well-timed potshots that were never less than clever and, surprisingly, less undignified than we expected.
