I heard on a talk show that the Academy wouldn't vote for Brokeback Mountain. We'll see if that holds up.

So much for 'No surprises'.
I am disappointed.
I am thrilled with the best picture and best actor winners.
Crash did not deserve to win. That movie, while some might call it hard-hitting, was shallow beyond belief. There was nothing profound about it like Brokeback Mountain. The acting in Crash was spectacular, but I don't need to watch a movie and have the themes and messages shoved down my throat the entire time. Most people can think for themselves.
I didn't understand Crash's win either? BBM had won every best pic award leading up to the Oscars and was a shoe in. It almost felt like a slap in the face by the Academy to me. I thought movies like Capote, Walk the Line, Memoirs of a Geisha, were a lot more deserving of a nomination and best pic win before Crash. Oh well, thats Hollywood for ya!?!
I didn't see the movie Crash (or for that matter any of the others) so what is it about?
and... World Peace!
it's said that the SAG awards are a great way to see who will win best picture (the best cast I guess is what that refers to) and Crash won the SAG... so I was not surprised that Crash would win...
I think with BBM getting as many nominations as it did, it ws pretty much a given it'd have a shut out when push came to shove...
isn't it amazing how Hollywood screams for equality, but are just as hypocritical as the rest of us I find it hilaious myself...
then again I've read just as many reviews from non-Conservative sources saying they didn't like it so... who knows what made it lose...
I'm bummed that Spielberg didn't take the Oscars by storm *sigh*
Here's where you can read about Crash (or any other film)

Perhaps Crash got more votes because many thought it was a better movie. After all, Brokeback Mountain is not much different than any other love stories that have been presented. The only difference is it was about two men in love instead of a woman and a man. Though Brokeback was a good movie, I thought Crash was more compelling, even if it was a bit preachy in some parts.
