Ah well, it was a good run and Superlaser deserves to win this thing. 

But though it did not garner a single comment, I want to impress on all of you to check out Gaslight.  The term has seen an unfortunate rise in visibility the last few years, but the film is a fantastic bit of psychological horror, and dramatizes how horrendously effective and horribly simple the process is very, very well.

Oh, and while There's Something About Mary has not aged nearly as well as Gaslight, Matt Dillon won an Oscar for it in the timeline where the Academy values comedy equally with drama.
Yeah, Laser's got a good shot at winning the whole damned thing. Congrats!
