No new thread about this amazing event? :-P

Frankly I could care less this year as I haven't seen but two or three of the films mentioned, but I must say Annie Lennox was the highlight of the show. She looked fantastic, sang beautifully and she even won :)

Thank goodness she's no longer wearing Minnie Mouse ears to awards shows.

I am very happy that LOTR won all of the noms it had! I just wish I hadn't fallen asleep and missed the whole damned show! :p

It's a shame, I don't think Lord Of The Rings won enough.

Yes, that was sarcasm. They should've named it "Oscars: Lord Of The Rings" edition. I had to turn it off because it got so annoying after awhile, but I find all award shows useless, anyway.

Pah.

I began to fall asleep so I recorded the last 2.5 hours and watched with the benefit of fast-forward later.

Well, I don't agree with most of the awards they won.

Best Picture - Mystic River.
Best Director - Clint Eastwood.
Best Makeup - Monster (it wasn't nominated?)
Best Song - Kiss at the End of the rainbow (c'mon, at least it's in the movie - they publicised "into the west" as "we wrote this for a boy who DIED so if you don't vote you'll feel GUILTY!")
Best Score - I agree.
Best Art Direction - I agree.
Best Film Editing - WORST EDITED FILM I'VE EVER SEEN.
Best Costume Design - Boooring. Girl with a Pearl Earring was much more interesting.
Best Sound Mixing - Sure.
Best Adapted Screenplay - Yeah right. They forgot the most important part; EDITING OUT THE CRAP.
Best Visual Effects - Sure. Whatever.

I totally agree with you abut Best Picture, Under Pressure.

"Man of the Hour" should have been nominated for and won best song. Out of the nominees, I love Annie Lennox, but that "Scarlet Tide" song was a treasure.

I wonder why Bill Murray took it so hard when he lost to Sean Penn. He was in tears and he was almost ready to stand up and walk out, until Billy Crystal said... 'Don't go Bill, we love you!'. I've always liked Bill Murray, but last night he was just a bad sport.

Other than that, very well deserved awards given last night. I have nothing to complain about.

Bill Murray should have won...
LOTR- too many... It's good, but not THAT good...
Glad that 'Finding Nemo" got some as well.
And Billy Crystal was cool...

I'm glad Sean Penn and Tim Robbins took some awards for their awesome performances in "Mystic River".

I just wish Clint Eastwood had taken the awards for best picture and best director. After all, he deserved them for "Mystic River".

As much as I am a Tolkien fan and saw all the movies in theatres, the only reason LOTR got rewarded was because it involved a lot of cast and crew. Otherwise, there's nothing special about staging large battle scenes that ivolve computer generated images.


Moo!

"Best Song - Kiss at the End of the rainbow (c'mon, at least it's in the movie - they publicised "into the west" as "we wrote this for a boy who DIED so if you don't vote you'll feel GUILTY!")"

That was a really unfair thing to say. Said boy was Cameron Duncan, who incidentally was quite well known here and was a very, very talented filmmaker. He was good friends with Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, and was supposed to have been helping them with the movie which would have been a hell of a break for him, and he'd have had quite a filmmaking career set up for him. Except that he got cancer and died.
I think that they were entirely justified in dedicating Into the West to him. And it had nothing to do with guilt trips.
