Personal comments:

1. I suppose the bourgeois Academy voters ended up preferring a film of violence, hatred and blasphemy (Crash), to the painful soul-murder of a love that is suffocated by the societal demand that one should not speak its name (Brokeback Mountain).

2. Brokeback Mountain nominees relatively clearly seem to have been ignored, except for those nominations where it would have been obviously profane to turn a blind eye to them.

3. King Kong winning Oscars??? Please--who really cares about a big monkey sitting on top of buildings? Dumb and dumber....

4. Thank goodness for March of the Penguins!!
