"Best" movie... what did we expect?

mood: cynical

darkrosetiger said it better than I could:
...given a choice between throwing their weight behind "Racism is bad" and "Gay love is special and tragic", or "Conservative intimidation of the media is bad", "Violence begets violence in the Middle East" and a biopic of Truman Capote, TPTB are going to go with the safest option...
It's the Oscars -- they get it wrong all the time.

*hugs to people who need 'em*

Honestly, Walk The Line should've won. Oh, yeah -- it wasn't even nominated.

Heh. I hate these kinds of contests anyway. They're irrational. Statistically meaningless. So yeah.

You got that right. How ROTK got an Oscar for best film is still beyond me.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Nothing at all for Munich, nothing at all for Good Night, and Good Luck. I haven't seen Crash, I'm not knocking it, but come on. You know? *thbbbt*

All these contests are so dumb. I watched for the dresses and for Jon Stewart.

Totally right. I'm glad that Ang Lee got the award, at least.
