March 5, 2006

I went to Paul and Kelli’s Oscar party tonight. At their party, they had a contest to pick the winners – all 24 categories. Last year, I got my ass beat. So this year I studied up, read some articles and watched almost all the movies in the top six categories. This year, I tied Paul for first place picking 16 out of the 24 categories correctly.

The score was Paul 13, Nick 12 with four categories left. Paul and I had all of the same picks except for Best Picture. So at best, I could hope for a tie. He picked Brokeback Mountain and I picked Crash as Best Picture. Needless to say, I was quite excited when Crash won over Brokeback Mountain. It is a shared victory, but I got a clutch performance.

I correctly picked, Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay, Art Direction, Original Score, Original Song, Documentary Feature, Film Editing, Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, and Makeup.

I know I had said in few blog entries ago that I thought Brokeback Mountain was going to win Best Picture, but that was before I saw Crash. Crash was a great movie. I loved it. See the winners of Oscars tonight – you won’t be disappointed.
