* AwardSnub: Was nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay at the Golden Globes, but no nominations for acting (leading or supporting). It lost each of those to ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' ([[AndZoidberg even Best Original Score.]]). At the Oscars, Nolan wasn't nominated for Best Director (yet still managed to nab Best Picture and Best Screenplay nods) while Lee Smith wasn't nominated for Best Editing. It did, however, win best sound editing, best sound mixing, best cinematography and best visual effects. The only other film to win as much was ''Film/TheKingsSpeech''.

** Saito. Amoral or underhanded as he might be, he is [[spoiler:sent to the Limbo and passes there what from his perspective could be easily thirty or fourty ''years''. Now imagine that much time in a place you can't leave and you know it is not the true reality, away from your life, your friends and loved ones, waiting for a rescue that may never come, and not knowing if your plan to save the world from an energy monopoly had ever success. When Cobb finds him, he has been reduced to a hopeless, decaying old man who barely remembers his own life.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LawfulEvil: Saito, though he sides with the protagonist. He uses his inception team to plant a false idea into the mind of his rival businessman to crush the energy monopoly, primarily to clear the obstacle to his own power expansion.

Added DiffLines:

** Intricate, original, and well-written story. Fascinating characters with interesting questions about ethics and morality. Stunning visuals and amazing special effects. Loses to yet another drama film which few people saw and nobody remembers.

** That odd, sort-of-breathing noise the PASIV makes. There's an extended sequence near the beginning of the film featuring the sound throughout--it's excruciating.

Added DiffLines:

** Cobb and Saito. Cobb stays in a rapidly crumbling limbo to find Saito and rescue him from thinking limbo is reality in a direct parallel to what happened between Cobb and Mal. Complete with the similar repeated phrases "grow old together"(Cobb and Mal) and "be young men together" (Cobb and Saito).
