Academy Awards ? Some Of Oscars Best And Worst Moments
Each year I look forward to the Academy Award ceremonies. I like to think I know a thing or two about films, so I make my own picks of who I think will win the coveted Oscar. I’ve gotten better over the years as I’ve kind of figured out some of the politics that go on in Hollywood. For the most part the ceremony isn’t that memorable on the whole, but occasionally an award is given, or sometimes not given, and these are the things that stick with me for years.
I was particularly incensed when Brokeback Mountain was snubbed for the Best Film Oscar in 2006. I saw all of the other films in the category, which included Capote, Good Night, and Good Luck, Munich, and eventual winner Crash.
Say what you will about the movie – I won’t pretend it didn’t polarize audiences and critics alike – but it won virtually every top honor at film festivals
