Sad, sad year for Hollywood. Thank God it is over.
I take it all in stride. Hollywood has had nothing but a long-running string of crappy years, as I see it.

I didn't think it was awful, but I believe it was very mediocre and certainly not anywhere near the best of the 5 nominated films.

Which ended up in Reese Witherspoon winning best actress, after her amazing performances in Legally Blonde and Cruel Intentions...

Thank God it's the Academy voting these movies in and not regular jo shmoes who can't appreciate a wonderful scripting/acting/directing job when they see it.

What a laughable comment. Previous work has *nothing* to do with her performance in Walk the Line.
It might take actors years to really get into their craft. Yes. Craft.

Let's remember Tom Hanks was the star of the TV show Bosom Buddies.

I think it worked very well as a morality tale. Why is it a sad year?

What do those have to do with her winning an Oscar for an entirely different movie?

If we started judging all acting nominees based on their prior work there would be nobody left.

What is so funny that makes you laugh so much?

Well, the Academy also chose Reese Witherspoon as best actress so go figure...

Movies are a question of taste, some people like them, some people hate them. The Academy are made of, well, people, which also have a subjective taste.

So do not consider that you have a better taste just because oyu happen to like a film that many of us here consider mediocre and not deserving of an Oscar.

Well, I happen to consider that her performance in Walk The Line was "laughable" as well... and there is no way you can compare an actor like Tom Hanks to Reese Witherspoon...

Embarassing.

I have six years of collegiate-level media education, including film studies, and I'm an aspiring screenwriter/director/editor (i.e., film auteur) myself.

In other words, I have a good idea of what's good, what's bad, and what's just plain mediocre.

But that's besides the point. An awards show, more than anything, is beset by internal politics. So I'm not sure how much of this is based on being the best film or just based on mutual consensus for the least controversial pick.

All in all, though, it really doesn't matter that much. Award shows are just kind of the comedy of the absurd to me.

Sore loser. If Crash didn't win I would have come back to this thread, said "Oh well" and moved on. Your making a mountain out of a molehole, and I'm loving every second of it.

The Academy and myself have supreme taste.

Box office is down again.

Crash won best movie.

Reese Witherspoon won best actress.

Three sad reasons.

Good for you then.

I'm just expressing my opinion. And all you do is make fun of me.

Good for you. Go celebrate.

I'm done celebrating Crash. Now I'm just celebrating the fact that Crash winning Best Picture is actually making you this riled up.

Keep going!
