Brokeback readied to create Oscar splash
But the cowboys soon saw their hopes dash
For there was a slip
Between cup and the lip
And the 'best film’ was awarded to Crash!

BBC News 06/03/06: Crash was the shock winner at the 78th Academy Awards, winning best film ahead of favourite Brokeback Mountain. Read all about it here

    I dont know...but somehow it feels Crash got the Oscars mostly cause it was based on Racisim, which is turning out to be one of the major crisis in US.

    However..both the movies are fantastic..though I would favour Brokeback Mountain.

  2. Have they been released in India? Kolkata has not had the luck of seeing any good films for quite sometime!

    Crash did release here, and I've seen it in bombay its a brilliant movie. Unfortunately it didn't come to cal.
    Not seen brokeback so can't comment, but wonder how good can the movie really is considering its theme.
