HOW DO YOU GIVE THE BEST DIRECTOR AWARD TO ANG LEE AND NOT GIVE THE FILM HE DIRECTED THE AWARD FOR BEST PICTURE? WOULDN'T THE BEST DIRECTION MAKE IT THE BEST FILM?!?!

FUCK YOU, CRASH, YOU SHITTY SHIT MOVIE.

AND FUCK YOU, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA, FOR TAKING ALL THE TECHNICAL AWARDS AWAY FROM BETTER MOVIES BECAUSE THE ACADEMY VOTERS BOUGHT INTO YOUR ORIENTALIST BULLSHIT.

i'll be pissed off about this for a couple of days, at least. just warning you all.

i know i'm the only one who cares. but really, c'mon.

i am NEVER watching the oscars again.

Agreed.

Though I have to say my favorite movie of last year (Gregg Araki's child-molesation-aftermath drama Mysterious Skin) wasn't even nominated for an Independent Spirit except for director. Araki lost to Lee.

The other huge disappointment there for me was Me You and Everyone You Know losing Best First Feature...to Crash, of all things, which isn't even a real indie.

They really ought to ban movies from the specialty divisions of the majors, unless they were aquired for distribution after the film was completed...this overlap with the Oscars is really bothersome to me.
