Ewan McGregor had a supporting role? I thought he played a main part

Lucas should've won Best Director, blast it all! I bet he would've, if he'd been nominated :p
Honestly it sounds like the movie did better than I thought it might do.
:confused: Strange that GL was not nominated........
Are you sure about this???

The MPAA would probably choke at seeing some of the winners. LOL!:D

I was suprised too, sice McGregor didn't have a suporting role... and I doubt SW2 will win an Oscar for best movie...

I have no respect for the Oscars. It's all one giant popularity contest... Lord of the Rings was an incredible movie like nothing seen before (until SW2) and it didn't win any of the principal Oscars... just crappy technical awards. Ian McKellen WAS Gandalf... forgive me, but I think that playing someone who is beloved by millions of people who all come with their preconceived notions and pulling it off to the satisfaction of many of them... assuming the part of someone who never existed and will never exist... I think doing that is alot harder than playing some random slice-of-life character. Ian McKellen and Lord of the Rings and Peter Jackson were ripped off. SW2 will be ripped off, too.

I agree completely with You on that Jedi Monk. LotR is FRIGGIN AWESOME! Everything about it screams greatness. same with episode 2. Unacceptable, those oscars are!

I agree too.
Only long, boring, psycologist drama win oscars...

Lets boycott the oscars!!!! and steal all the trophies....wait, that's been done....;)

Does any one here REALLY think that "A Beautiful Mind" was THAT good?

I didn't care much about the Oscars either way but the year that Titanic won all those awards I was not happy, because in my opinion that movie just plain SUCKED! My hatred towards the oscars grew when LOTR didn't win, and of course Episode 2 has no chance of being nominated for best picture which is a real SHAME($10 bucks says My Big fat Greek Wedding wins it). I pretty much much don't watch any awards shows because as Jedi_Monk stated it's all a popularity contest. One more example of an awards show Travesty is How come The Simpsons has never won or even been nominated for an emmy for Best Comedy!
Boy, I didn't think I had that much to say.
