I'm not saying they deserved it, I'm just pointing out that if the Brit Awards thought they were the Best British Band, it's natural that they give The Darkness the Best Breakthrough Award.

I watch them, but I start channel surfing when they have long, intricate, boring musical numbers and such.

I don't know about that. Triplets got huge critical reviews in the USA for proving 2-D animation is still an aliv and kicking genre. Don't count on the oscars to make expected choices except in some categories.

Nemo won.  But remember, the other two times the award was given, a non-Disney nominee won.

So far Return of the King has won everything it's been nominated for (eight awards).  If it wins its three other nominations, it'll tie Ben-Hur and Titanic for most Oscar wins ever.

Edit: Well, that's one more.  Peter Jackson is now officially an Oscar winner.  Two to go.

I'm sure plenty of movies with just one nomination have won, thereby winning 100% of their nominations, but if Return of the King gets Best Picture (which it probably will), it might set some record for a movie with the most nominations that won them all.

Edit: Okay, the most-nominated film that didn't have a single loss was The Last Emperor, with nine awards.

Edit edit: And Return of the King just beat it, with eleven wins from eleven nominations.  And as I said before, it's now tied for most wins ever.

Loosers of the evening: Seabiscuit. It has lost in all 7 categories. Pirates of the Caribbean: Lost in all 5 categories. City of God: Lost in all 4 categories.

The 11 that ROTK earned broke the record for sweeping the Oscars, previous earned by two films, Gigi (1958) and The Last Emperor (1986), with 9 each.

And with the 4 for FOTR and the 2 for TTT, it's earned the total of 17 of the LOTR triolgy.  big grin

Return of the King probably didn't deserve half of what it won, and Seabiscuit got nothing? The academy awards is just cheap pandering to the most popular movies, whether or not they are the best.  no no

I do not think ROTK deserved that many awards. It is a very good film but it is not great. Truly great films like Lost in Translation deserved more awards

I think they're giving ROTK the nods as a package dealie for all three movies, for which it fully deserves its plaudits.

That could be true. Peter Jackson would deserve the best director for making those three films at once, and doing an extremely good job on all of them.

I think that could be a consolation Oscar, since she was nominated both last year and the year before, but didn't win either time.  Similarly, Russell Crowe won for Gladiator, but people said he got it because he didn't win the previous year for The Insider.  (I guess no one knew he'd be nominated yet again the next year.)

Considering that the bulk of ROTK's awards were technical (sound mixing, film editing, art direction, make up, etc.), I don't think it compares to smaller-scale films like "Lost in Translation". Notice that it got not a single nod for acting.

I can't believe peole are trying to take this honour away from The Return of the King! If it hadn't won best picture there would have been rioting in the streets! (well, not quite).
It deserves everything it got, as much as I loved the other films nominated, nothing could have justifyably beat TROTK this year. It will now go down in history (along with the whole trilogy) as a landmark in filmmaking. It deserves every bit of praise it gets.

Maybe, but remember many people can vote in the academy.

Examples: Angelina Jolie, Eminem, Queen Latifah, Cher

so it's almost like if you or me were the ones voting. Maybe they just heard Renee's name everywhere so that made them vote for her.

Also, Peter O'toole never got any consolation award, just life achievement.
Alfred Hitcock never got an Oscar for directing.
Stanley Kubrick, also never got an oscar for directing.

And many more who deserved an oscar, never got one.

Much as I loathe the LotR films, is some ways you have to laugh.  The Oscars are supposed to be about luvvie actors back slapping each other, but this year they've been upstaged by a bunch of computer geeks sucking up the pointless awards.  laff

It's been more than twenty years since Peter O'Toole was nominated for anything.  But if Troy is a big hit, he might get something for that.

Stanley Kubrick never won for directing but he did win, for the special effects in 2001 (yes, he personally did the special effects).  Charlie Chaplin only won once, for music.  Some people put Orson Welles on lists of people who never won Oscars, though he won for writing Citizen Kane.

Hitchcock was nominated six times but always lost.  Other famous dead people to never win Oscars include Richard Burton, Cary Grant (who was only nominated twice, for movies that aren't very well remembered), Akira Kurosawa, and Federico Fellini (twelve nominations, but I think he's overrated anyway).

Julia Roberts was just guaranteed to get an Oscar.  She would have won even if Katharine Hepburn, Jennifer Jones, Olivia de Havilland, and Joan Fontaine had all made movies that year.  The same goes for Nicole Kidman last year.

Well, what can I say? It was  great for those like me who think that LOTR deserved all the awards it got ,except for Best Original Song. That should have gone to A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow (memorable performance!).

I'm also sad for Bill Murray. He was so close to that damn thing and he lost agains the, in my opinion, undeserved Sean Penn.

Pretty predictable night but I still enjoyed it very much. Now we'll just have to wait for the next Oscar race that should begin earlier this year.

Aw, I've never seen Mystic River, but I was really hoping Depp would win best actor. He did such a fantastic job in POTC and I think he deserved the nod.

Most awesomest were Jack Black and Will Ferrell as presenters.

The breathless way he said "Sting" made even Jack Black crack a smile, and he's usually pretty solid. "You're boriiiiing!"

That's because it was an ensemble cast and no one actor or actress stood out in particular i.e., everyone gave an outstanding performance.

I'm still glad that 'Cold Mountain' got only one award associated with it. That movie was more overhyped than Matrix Reloaded

Though I'm inclined to agree, the fact remains that the preponderance of ROTK's awards are of the behind-the-camera sort.

you know, I wonder- will there ever be a day when WETA Digital and ILM combine their visual effects efforts on one film? It'd be interesting to see what they could do.

Shut up! There's no way Sean Astin could have matched the other guy's acceptance speech/PSA.

Unless maybe he did a "parents, talk to your kids about drugs" speech. That would be pretty cool.
