So, are me and Beaty the only ones watching the Oscars? I must say, the one part worth watching, Stewart's shizzle, is rather funny. Maybe not Chris Rock funny, but funny funny.

Quick question before I go to bed and maybe turn this on, is Serenity up for any awards? If not, I may pass.

Ixnay on the Serenity, I'm afraid. Frankly, it should've gotten a nom for Best Visuals simply for the fact it was made with 4x less the budgets of King Kong and Narnia and held its own with those.

Pfft, not worth watching. It's annoying that films that don't do that well, but are 'critically acclaimed' seem to get over looked despite being better than 90% of the usual shit that Hollywood churns out. Serenity was the best film released in the past year bar none IMO.

Oh, and I'm of the opinion that should Brokeback Mountain win anything, it'll be because it's a gay film. Haven't seen the film, but since it came out that was the first thing I thought of. No matter how good it is. I'm probably talking BS and the film may deserve everything it may win.

I never really thought about it, but my friend, upon leaving the cinema, said that Brokeback Mountain was the most heterosexual film he'd ever seen.

More on-topic, I don't really rate the Oscars, or any awards ceremony, any more. It's just a "I'll scratch your back, you'll scratch mine" show at the best of times, and mutual masturbation of the rich and famous at worst.

EDIT: I do, for the most part, agree about Brokeback at the Oscars, though. That said, it deserves something for the cinematography.

Yes, well seeing thay they're cowboys who meet and fuck women in bars (well, Gyllenhaal's character did) and kick other dude's asses...and there's as much female nudity as there is male...it does make sense.

Going even further than that, it's a really ancient Greek view of homosexuality, as manly, aggressive, and more a rite of passage than anything else.

I have only missed two I think, but in non-significant categories.

It's been ok thusfar, although I disagree with TMM and ROC with the Serenity thing. Maybe it should have been nom'd for visual, but it doesn't compare imo to Narnia or Kong, even though Kong sucked the category is for visuals.

I dunno what I think it should win, but something. It easily blew Star Wars out of the water in every conceivable way (except the nostalgia feeling) and you just know Star Wars will win something. There should be a category that rewards films for being fresh, because Serenity was just that. It's getting annoying not actually seeing anything you haven't seen before in some form or another.

Well, it's more than that. You could also argue that Hollywood also needs to support more of its spectrum than just dramatic fodder. I mean, 40 Year Old Virgin also got mad acclaim (and money) this year, but not a single damn nod because it's a comedy, a genre Oscar only seems to support when it's something like Shakespeare in Love (i.e. a goddamn period piece).

Brokeback was overrated. I'm thrilled it's lost both awards thus far, although not because of any grudge but rather the fact that I found nothing overly impressive about the performances of Michelle Williams or Jake Gyllenhaal. Had Anne Hathaway gotten a nod, I might have been pulling for it. Good to see fresh blood like Rachel Weisz winning; could Keira be next?
