I’ve been overhwelmingly told by so many readers that I’m overheated or flat-out full of shit about my belief that there was a sufficient numbers of Korean War and World War II-generation Academy members flinching at Brokeback Mountain to cause it to lose the Best Picture Oscar. I don’t know what to say except that I know I’m right about a certain percentage of these people voting against Ang Lee’s film for reasons I’ve described in previous postings, and/or supporting Crash for the “wrong” reasons. I know it, I know it…but nobody seems to agree (here’s Roger Ebert disputing it) so let’s just drop it and move on.
