Spike Jonze, "Where The Wild Things Are"
Previous nominations or wins:
Nominee, Best Director, "Being John Malkovich" (2000)
Pros: No one would argue that Jonze's vision for "Wild Things" is not his own. Inspired, but also dark and gritty, it's one of the more original works of the past few years.
Cons: Based on the classic children's book, Jonze's "Wild Things" isn't really a film for kids. How many parents in the Academy found that out before it was too late?
