Huh, No. Nyman, best known for his collaborations with Peter Greenaway (Drowning by Numbers, The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover) was bypassed by the Academy's Music Branch. To date, Michael Nyman has yet to receive an Academy Award nomination. As for the failure [...] »

As we discussed in our How I Met Your Mother review yesterday, this week's episode will likely go down as one of the show's best, if not the best, in five-plus seasons.
The final scene, which no one saw coming, is one that fans won't forget anytime soon, and according to Carter Bays, one that "we built the whole season around."
In an interview with E!, the executive producer and co-creator explains the countdown clock, where Marshall goes from here, future "mother" clues and more ...
The countdown begins ...
On the demise of Marshall's dad: "One important ingredient in early seasons was that there was some angst and there was some sadness. It was a way for us to really mine our own lives and to really fully explore emotions about situations we've been in."
