Yes you're doing a great job Ivar. Giving us a place to find and share information without asking for anything in return. Kudos!

I've just been in touch with the academy-I can't say too much but nominations have been received for the following categories:
Best Director
Academy Award For Technical Achievement
but looking at your photo I think:
Best Animated Feature


Hola, todo el mundo desde Irlanda,

Yes, I wish to endorse eyerything that has been said. I am doing most of my research through your site and I have had some very helpful private replies too. As I am not going to Aragón 'till April I know I will be using the forum many more times and would hope to return the compliment with my 'tupence halfpenny worth' of advice when I get back.

Go raibh maith agat! Gracias,
Wholeheartedly agree! I can't tell you how much this forum has helped me. I am sure this site takes up a lot of time, and yet you so kindly continue to help us naive pilgrims out. Gracious thanks and appreciation on behalf of all of this year's pilgrims from Romania (all 5.....uhmm..3? maybe just me?)! Multumim frumos!

Pax et bonum!

Oscar Nomination for Ivar

I like many others 'owe ' you a debt of grattitude.
I will try to repay this by passing on my experiences to others. At present a relation of mine is planning and preparing to go in April and I am passing on my knowledge from here to her (and others).

You could be considered a 'gatekeeper' to a world of knowledge and people or maybe angel.
