And The Oscar Goes To....

I might be going to Allahabad on the 3rd so I thought that I should make this post today itself.

Date: 3rd March 2006
The winners for this year are:
Best Picture: Brokeback Mountain
Best Director: Ang Lee
Best Actor: Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Best Actress: Resse Witherspoon
Best Screenplay (Adapted): Brokeback Mountain
Best Screenplay (Original): Crash
Best Supporting Actor: George Clooney
Best Supporting Actress: Rachel Weisz

However, I do not agree with quite a few of these specially Best Picture and Best Director awards. Brokeback Mountain won the awards just because of the amount of hype generated by the movie. Crash is a much better movie in my opinion and I would have been pretty happy if it had won but then we all know what happened to L. A. Confidential. Spielberg made the second best movie of his career this year and I think he deserved an Oscar for that. The worse part about the oscars this year was that they did not even nominate "The Grizzly Man".
We did pretty well in the quiz yesterday thanks to some inspired guessing by my new team-mate Prachi Phadnis. The sad part is that the prize money was very low.
