YAHOO Spirited Away won!

Now Special Effects...

LotR won! (like there was any chance the other movies would win for this one... for Golem alone   smile)

Well here is the Oscar thread.

::edit::
It is nice to see a movie win that had NO big add backing (Disney put their effort behind Lilo and Stich)... and awarding a film maker that really deserved it.

Michael Moore won for "Bowling for Columbine!" w00t, w00t, w00t, w00t! He's smashing Bush and getting booed or cheered! I love this man! They cut him off! w00t again!

And how could Christopher Walken not win? How can he and Chris Cooper be in the same category? That's not fair!

He he Moore just delivered a massive anti-Bush anti-War Speach, strange reactions half seemed to be booing half seemed to be chearing. They Played the "get the hell off the stage" music a lot louder then the other nomines.

I've never seen a crowd turn on someone so fast. They cheered Moore at the beginning, then suddenly and viciously turned on him. Wow. I thought the entertainment industry was mostly "liberal." (cough)

It was mixed half chears and half boos... People don't want to get Black Listed. And did you expect Moore not to do something like that?

I know I know... Moore does cause some problems but he does speak his mind no matter how annoying it is and how against the norm. I don't always agree with him but he is a great documentarian. But you shouldn't give someone an award just because they have unpopular views... killed a lot of great carears in the 50's.

Sorry winna, don't get your hopes up I can't think of any film that has won best picture that wasn't nominated for director. Hopefully Jackson will get it next year.

I think Two Towers will be better than Return of the King...  Although isn't part of the story of Two Towers in Return of the King?  I know they cut up the story some to split up the movies...

Ouch. That's tough for "Gangs of New York." I personally didn't care too much for it, but it should have at least gotten *something*.

I thought a movie couldn't be sexually aroused by men.

YES!! In your face, all you who haven't won an Oscar. And that includes you Liechtenstein!

And how the fuck t´did they manage only to give LOTR:The Two Towers a measly two Oscars? The "Best Visual Effects" price was a given, but "Costume Design", "Art Direction" and "Best Movie" would've, scratch that should've gone to TTT.

50 bucks say Return Of The King wont win "Best Movie" either, no matter how stellar it is, and how well it does at the box office.

Chicago have got to be the best damn movie ever made, if it beat TTT in so many categories.

I'll be recording the Oscar ceremony tonight. I was glad to hear that Roman Polenski had won the Best Director award for some reason...

And I agree with Nix, next year will be the LOTR year!

Oh ... your ... God! They gave Eminem an Oscar?  eek I have now lost the last ounce of respect I once had for the Academy.

I think so too, that Peter Jackson will get his Oscar next year, unless there is another great film in the competition.
I was surprised that Michael Moore got an Academy Award, since had complained days before about the how Academy decides who wins. And since I didn't see it, does anybody know who booed during his acceptance speech?
Another surprise was that Gangs of NY didn't get a single Oscar.

I am still not too sure as to whether or not those that were booing were doing so because they disagreed with his statements, or if it was because he chose to turn the oscars into a political forum... just take the damn award and thank yo' mamma...

DAmn you tweek, that thread had potential. I think i saw some people booing in the audience, but just one or two. It seems that the right and left are always accusing each other of controlling the media.

It's closed now, but I did a thread about the booing (or lack of it): Michael Moore was not 'booed off stage' like some media suggests.

Not realllllllllly. What does it matter who booed him? I'm sure most of us realize that most of the scuuuuuuum in Hollywood today are liberals. (Conservatives are equally as worthless)So those doing the booing would obviously not be said celebrities. But theeee booers do represent the majority in the U.S. He came off as a selfish, spoiled brat. I didn't have a problem with what he said, it was just the way he said it. I would have booed his ass too.

It matters because we were given a false impression of what really happened, whatever you think of Michael Moore.
I don't care for the opinions of Hollywood people either, but some people do, and since this is a worldwide stage (despite the fact that only Americans win the awards...) hundreds of millions around the world were misinformed by the TV coverage.

It's hard to change people's opinions when they don't give a crap.  Like how I don't give a crap about any of the Oscars, except for the ones Lord of the Rings won.

Aparently most of the crowd cheered michael moore but 5-10 people booed loudly. I agree with him but there no place for that at an awards night.

Loved the Daily Shows line about it "Michael Moore was given the Oscar for being an outspoken activist...[cut to the speach] What is he doing? Its wrong! Who said he should be so Outspoken and Active!" Something along that effect but funnier.


The media sucks when they get things wrong the correct responces they don't care about, releasing them quietly weeks later and after all the damage is done.

They need to get rid of the animated film oscar. As much as I like seeing Pixar and Spirited Away get some recognition, I hate the fact that absolute shit like Jimmy Neutron and Shark Tale can claim themselves to be oscar-nominated.

I'm surprised Polar Express didn't get nominated. Not that it was great, but it was one of those solid inoffensive family films that you'd expect to see nominated for best animated film.
