Well, you and your fellow friends of Dorothy should have spoken up. Everyone else seems to have been nominated. What was the final list of nominees? 300?

And Carrie:

For some people on this list, yeah.

And as for Marlowe knowing (or not knowing) what to do with a naked woman in his bed, well, I don't think any less of him for chucking out Carmen. In fact, I thought it was a sign of strength and principle, not weakness. You can be hard-boiled and still be a little choosy about whom you sleep with. Maybe some of the folks who took Marlowe to task for being discriminate have been a little, uh, lonely lately.
