Crash Wins Best Picture at 2006 Oscars

I can’t remember the last time I cared about the Oscars, must less watched them. Interestingly, the only one of the Best Picture nominees that I have actually seen, “Crash,” won. It was an interesting and enjoyable film, although “Walk the Line” was probably the best movie I saw in a theater this year.

See “‘Crash’ Pulls Off Upset, Wins Best-Picture” for a roundup of the nominees and winners.

Apparently, most of the blogosphere is more interested in the topic than I am, as about a hundred people live blogged according to Memeorandum. Pajamas Media hosted a blogjam on the subject, Ed Morrissey live blogged, Ann Althouse simulblogged, Michelle Malkin blogged the live blogging, and James Wolcott chides conservatives for caring.

    I watched “Team America” after this liberal lifestyle train wreck(the Oscars), and I felt much better. the acceptance speech by Reese was cool but that was about it.

    Thunderbird seems to dislike Clooney (even has to spell it in all caps).

    Women love him. That’s the way it goes, eh T-Bird? Some guys have all the luck.

    Jessica Alba and Selma Hayek are enough to sell anybody on women of the Latin persuasion, no?
