I'm so happy Crash won. I thought that movie or Good Night and Good Luck were the best movies of the year. I'm glad the Academy made the right choices in a lot of categories...Resse Witherspoon and Wallace and Gromit were the best in their categories and got the nod. It's a shame Amy Adams didn't win for Junebug, however.

Agreed on Amy Adams; she was awesome. Unfortunately, Junebug probably didn't have enough people see it to get enough support for her.

Wow, it sounded like Brokeback Mountain won alot of oscars. It sounds like a great movie. I really want to see it but i don't think saying "hey, lets all go to the gay cowboy movie!" would go over well with my friends...

especially if I said it.... Then my secret would be way to obvious...

Well, thats what DVDs are for!

^ Actually it won only three out of the eight nominations:

Screenplay Adaptation



Which was fine - 'cause that's what made BM so memorable. Ang Lee's amazing bringing together of all elements in the film; an amazing screen treatment of an already great short story; A haunting, yet very 'western american sound' in it's soundtrack.

It's much more than 'just about gay cowboys.' Much more.

I was glad to see Reese Witherspoon take the award for Best Actress.

I read that she took six months of singing lessons to prepare for her roll in this film. That shows incredible dedication and commitment to the role.

It's one thing for a singer to become and actor, but It has to be much more difficult for an actor to learn how to sing.

Also, for those who haven't seen her movie "Election", it's definitely worthy of a rental. :b

Let's see, I called Best Actor,Actress,Supporting Actress, Animated feature film, Makeup.

I loved Jon's quip on "Martin Scorsease" (Or howerver you spell his last name) 0, Three Sixth Mafia, 1 ! :lolr:

As for Best Picture, I believe everyone was shocked by Crash taking it. IMO, while it was good, it was not the knockout Brokeback was. :?r
