Out of this year's Oscar winners, I've only seen 2: LionWitchWardrobe and Crash. Of these, I'm really surprised that LWW beat out Revenge of the Sith and it's not just my love for Star Wars: there are lots of moments in LWW (more than in RotS) where the makeup just looks bad, like styrofoam heads.

Crash for Best Picture doesn't really upset me (like it did some people), tho I felt the movie was a bit preachy in the way every scene tried to make a statement about race relations. It brings up good issues, however, and until everbody in American can listen to Everybody's a Little Bit Racist from Avenue Q (the best statement on race relations I've seen yet), people should see Crash. I'm also interested to see if screenwriter Paul Haggis (who also wrote 2005's winner Million Dollar Baby) will win next year, either with Flags of Our Fathers (Clint Eastwood-directed WWII pic) or Casino Royale.
