Glad to see ROTK take Best Picture. The peace between the Academy and the unwashed masses may continue for another year.


Did Master and Commander win anything? I was flipping between this, Braveheart, and Buffy so I might have missed it.

I believe M & C won some award for sound-something, that I thought it beat out Rings for, but I heard wrong, apparently. . .

And I can't wait for 2006's Oscars!  Star Wars is gonna kick Rings' ass!  

Preach on, Brother Gregggggg!

Yeah, Bill looked a little peeved, but I would be, too.  There's no shame in being disappointed, and Sean Penn's speech about how there's no such thing as 'best' acting was right on.  

ROTK: Proof sometimes the right thing does happen.

Sofia Coppola: Richly deserving, she wrote/directed the best American film in years, and really made the best film of 2003, but ROTK won not for itself, but the trilogy.

LOL, Ben, I was flipping between Buffy/Braveheart as well.

I was even taping Buffy, but I still had to watch it. And I've got Braveheart on DVD. Meh, I'm weak.

I was also thrilled to see Sofia Coppola win her award. LIT was a great flick. :)

Renee wins Best Supporting Actress. . .

. . .and is also the early favorite for "Most Annoying Acceptance Speech".

Congrats!  

Now shut the hell up!

I'm pretty sure I stopped watching the show after about 8 minutes of her rambling on. I already knew who'd win what anyway.  ::)

LOL.

Ms. Zellweger is a very good actress, especially when she's acting surprised that's she's won.  She reacted the EXACT same way when she won the Golden Globe, almost to the point that made you wonder if it was rehearsed.  Her sincerity comes off a little earnest and maybe a bit forced.  Maybe it's just me.

Urgh, I actually went into an RS thread!

To quote the complete content of a post-pad from your buddy:

::)

He can keep on dreamin'.

So ROTK took away 11 awards. I'm right there with OCB on this - the movie itself doesn't deserve the honor, but the trilogy as a whole does. Which I think isn't fair on really great movies like Mystic River that just didn't have a chance against a sort of pent-up vote. On the other hand, like he mentioned in his speach, it's wonderful to see a fantasy film actually get some recognition.

Not a member of the Renee "Squinting is Cute" fanclub. I don't get the greatest vibe of sincerity off of her. Though, I agree Spuffy, she can act.

Dang, this reminds me that I need to watch Lost in Translation and I wish I could have seen Mystic River before this weekend.  I think ROTK is a lock for best picture and original song now that Pearl Jam isn't there to play spoiler...its a shame Sean Astin didn't get nominated

My picks:

Best Picture: ROTK
Best Actor: Penn
Best Actress: Theron
Supporting Actor: Robbins
Supporting Actress: Zellweger
Director: Jackson

BTW...keep bowing to my Skillz

Yeah, way to really put your balls out there with those picks, man.

Clap, clap, clap.

Did you even see anything besides ROTK?

:-* my ass

Why, I never!

(REPORT POST)

(runs off to create a "Get rid of OCB" petition)

. . .

To be on-topic:

I think that it should be a new rule, that all of the Oscar winners each year have to get together and make a new movie together to be debuted the weekend of the next Oscars.

So, next year, we'll have a movie written by Sofia Coppola, directed by Peter Jackson, and starring Sean Penn, Charlize Theron, Tim Robbins, and Renee Zellweger--and then made by pretty much the entire crew of Lord of the Rings.

Let's make that a rule.

Damn, I wish ROTK would have one more award so the real King could have beaten Titanic.  My favorite moment of the night was when Adrian Brody sprayed his mouth with Binaca... :P

I dunno, the Will Farrell/Jack Black "You're Boring" song was the defining moment, me thinks.  :)
