  • Acadamy Awards Best Picture

    I know it's been a while since the Acadamy Awards has been on (March, right?), but I found a poll like this on another site and wanted to post it.

        'Crash' sucked. 'Do the Right Thing' and 'Boys in Da Hood' were far better movies about the same subject.

        'BBM' was by far my favorite movie of last year.

          I loved Munich. Fantastic movie.
          Brokeback Mountain was pretty good as were Capote and Good Night.
          I didn't care for Crash.

          But, what do I know? My favorite films (2005) were Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Domino.

            After watching them all now.. *phew*

            Crash - Didn't do much for me. Just didn't really care about the characters
            Brokeback Mountain - It was pretty good, mostly because of the secondary characters.
            Capote- My choice. Loved the Acting, loved the complex multi-layerd story, Loved the historical settings, just loved it.
            Good Night and Good Luck - My second choice. Held my interest better than all the other movies.

                Mine, too. I can't wait for a Director's Cut DVD. (I really hope one comes out!)

                  If you look at the major reviews of Crash last year, it wasn't well received. Many said that it was a weak version of what Robert Altman's Short Cuts and Magnolia had done before and so much better.

                  Crash was an actors' film and had a huge cast. They comprise more than 25% of the Academy's voting membership and a very smart campaign on the part of the Crash producers reached them in a big way. Notice, too that the film wasn't put into theatrical circulation after the nominations. They went for the voters big time with marketing packages.

                  Also, one of the biggest laughs of the evening's broadcast was when "what's his name" asked everyone who wasn't in the cast of Crash to stand.

                    Capote ROCKED! Such great acting, such a great story. It brought on emotions, and an interest that only a good movie can give you. It was so well done!
                    What an idiot....

                    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

                          Wow, alot of votes for Brokeback.

                          Like American Beauty before it, I just don't get why it's so liked.
