With all due respect, and I don't want to come off sounding like Al Gore, but how the blazes can "Gladiator" win the category for Best Isolated Score? As previously pointed out, by myself and others:

THE GLADIATOR DVD DOES NOT EVEN HAVE AN ISOLATED SCORE!!!

Who voted for this DVD--confused, elderly residents of Florida?!? Did people think they were voting for Best Score, or Pat Buchanan?!? This is like voting a pan & scan VHS tape "DVD of the Year." It just doesn't make sense. It's just plain WRONG. Not to mention embarassing to the DVD Talk community. What's next: we vote "Best Commentary" to a disc that doesn't HAVE a commentary?

Could you at least reveal what came in second place--so we'll know who SHOULD have won?

To preserve the dignity and integrity of the DVD Talkie Awards, I must demand a recount of the Best Isolated Score category, on the grounds that the winner is completely unqualified to even compete in the category.

Yeah, I know this isn't that big a deal, but I think this is a mistake that can be easily corrected. Admit we goofed, and give the award to the second-highest vote getter.

Thank you for your consideration of this issue.

Ease up, buddy! I have a feeling that Geoff does more work on this site in one day than most of the members here do in a month. This is hardly a big issue.

Geoff--

THANK YOU!!

I agree, this was not a big deal--except to fans of isolated scores (like me). I guarantee, if JAWS had been voted Best Director's Commentary, you would've heard a huge cry from the masses about that!

Do you feel disenfranchised?

My vote for Best Commentary has to go to Major League... The play by play commentary that Bob Uecker gives during the game is the best I have ever heard.

Oh, except that movie isn't out on DVD yet, but should be...

I think it should still win.
