  1. FCP HD seems to have lost to Premier Pro. Thats too bad. Maybe its political because apple winning in every category would make people angry. Although they did win an award for HD over Firewire, which is FCP’s new feature.

  2. Motion is great because of the price…After effects is a thousand dollars, but the 2 programs do the same things. Genius. I hope they don’t jack up the price.

  3. think of it this way you can give the same movie the academy award for best movie 2 years in a row. just think LOTR etc apple still got plenty of awards
