oscar

I'm pleased for Peter Jackson - it is recognition for (at least) 6 years hard work.

But I was sad to see so many good films miss out on an Oscar this year - many of which were plainly better than any of the LotR trilogy. Lost in Translation managaed to grab Best Original Screenplay, but quite how Bill Murray lost out to Sean Penn I'll never know. Proof once more that comedy acting will never be recognised by The Acadamy in anything less than a "Lifetime Achievement" rap.

Cold Mountain, Mystic River, Sea Biscuit - all badly under-represented in the prize stakes.

Yeah, i saw it, congrats to you ozzies.

I was a bit confused about the lack of variations among the nominees. LotR, M&C, Mistic River and Cold Mountain all the way.

btw; anyone saw it on the BBC? Whats it with the gay-thing? At the end of this 4 hour broadcast i really could shoot mister Jonathan Ross and his panel. <_<

I thought Robin Williams handily upstaged Billy Crystal in his short but funny segment. :) I'm glad to see that LoTR won in every category for which it was nominated. The sheer scale of the film created technical and artistic challenges that none of the other films last year even came close to rivaling. I can't believe Seabiscuit was even nominated for anything. What a dumb movie. :(

:o Did you even watch it?

I saw it flying from Chicago to Sacramento on a tiny little screen, listening to it through cheap head phones, and still thought it was good.

And I do think there was atleast one aussie getting an oscar, for best animated short. That's the bloke that at the end of his speach thanked his boyfriend :blink::x If he wasn't out of the closet before than then he sure as h*ll is now!

Word for word from the book is what LOTR fans wanted. The side effect of PJ also adding high quality production values only increases the value of the film.

Sure, he didn't write it. He artistically interpreted the work and presented it in a beautiful manner.
