Well, I didn't get to watch these, but I must say, I'm fairly pleased with the results, especially the supposed upset for best picture.
I'm happy that this got the best picture. While I'm sure that Brokeback Mountain is a good movie, I was afraid that it'd be a huge sweep, and while that's find, that tends to exclude a number of really good other movies. Crash, by all accounts, is fantastic, about race relations in LA. I really wanted to see it.
Ang Lee - Brokeback Mountain
I was rooting for George Clooney to get this one for his movie Goodnight and Good Luck, which was just amazing. The directorial work on that was fantastic, and I'm sad that he didn't get it.
ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
Philip Seymour Hoffman - Capote
I really want to see this one. It was odd, because I hadn't seen any of the trailers or any hype for it before the awards season - but when I saw the trailers, it looked fantastic.
ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Reese Witherspoon - Walk the Line
Haven't seen it, but I've also heard really good things.
ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit
I wanted to see this very much. Although, I haven't any of the others.
Brokeback Mountain by Larry McMurtry & Diana Ossana
I would have been happy with any of the other choices- Constant Gardener, A History of Violence, Munich, or Capote. All really good or good looking movies.
Crash by Paul Haggis & Bobby Moresco
I was rooting for Syriana, but this also won best picture.
March of the Penguins
Very cute, fun documentary.
ACHIEVEMENT IN VISUAL EFFECTS
King Kong, Joe Letteri, Brian Van’t Hul, Christian Rivers and Richard Taylor
Yeah, this deserved it. It looked fantastic, although it was too long.
Overall, I was happy with the choices. No major sweeps like the past couple years. I'm only annoyed with the fact that Goodnight and Good Luck, Revenge of the Sith or Munich didn't pick up anything, but there were A LOT of good looking movies out there this year. Come to think of it, Serenity should have been at least nominated. It should have swept everything.
