No fair

My son has seen 2 Oscar-winning movies (Wallace & Grommit and March of the Penguins), and I have seen none (yet).

UPDATE: BOO! OK, so I have seen one: Crash. It was the only Best Picture nominee I was able to see before the awards, and I must say, it is not Oscar-worthy! BOO!

Hah! I've got a 16 month old. I don't remember the last time I saw a movie (oh wait, yes I do - at Christmas, but before that it was summertime!).

The last couple of years we hadn't seen any of them either, but this year we've seen a pretty good chunk of them.

Your son's seen two good ones.

I'm sure you can imagine my thoughts on Crash winning! Ugh. Predictable, but disappointing for sure. I do want to see Wallace & Gromit, though...

Haven't seen anything but Brokeback (which was good), the only thing I can really comment on is how delicious Clooney was.

I love that the only movie I've seen in a theater in over 4 years won an oscar. Go Wallace & Gromit!

BTW, APL, I have W&G:CotWR on DVD. Do you want to borrow it?

I'm sorry Murderball didn't win Best Documentary. I was sure your review, in which you drop an F-bomb, would have swayed the academy. But they're just a bunch of tools!

I agree that Crash was good, but I never really considered that it would win best pic. I recommend that people watch it, but really I thought that Walk the Line should have had it or Brokeback. (Can I make my own award?)

I was outraged that Crash won best original screenplay -to me that was the biggest crime of the evening (with Reese wining over Felicity or Judy Dench a close second).

I was not a fan of Brokeback Mountain, I just didn't buy Jake G or the "love story", so I wasn't invested in it winning best picture at all.

Crash,winning, was by my judgemnt based on all the other elements that make a film great: directing, sound, costumes, sets, editing, the DP's great work, and the acting they were very strong in Crash. I had HUGE issues with the contrivance of the script, but I could forgive it in the end.

I was so excited that I saw March of the Penguins. I think that's the first time I saw something nominated since Michael Moore won.

And Mr. Clooney? Dreamy.

I thought Crash was good, but kind of "self-important" for my taste. There were a couple of amazing scenes (like the pulling-Thandie-out-of-the-car scene -- beautifully done), and the performances were excellent. I was actually hoping Matt would win the supporting actor award. (I haven't seen "Syriana.")
