Crash winning goes beyond that... It shouldn't even been the runner up for Best Picture...
It shouldn't even have been nominated (it wasn't even nominated for the Globes)...

The film is bad... It has all the depth of a melodramatic television movie....
And it calls itself a anti-racism movie but meanwhile depicts Asians and Arabs as uneducated stereotypes... I was recently flipping through the channels and saw that Crash was on TV....
I tried rewatching, but I just couldn't... It's very unpleasent to watch...

Again...how many people are against CRASH mainly because they think the Oscars are homofobes?


As for The Departed... It's a decent and well made movie...
But it just feels very inferior when you put it next to Infernal Affairs....
I know someone who isn't even willing to watch it, because he liked the original that much...

Yeah, all the past winners' reasons have been listed above. "Hurt Locker": gotta give Best Director to a woman, "Departed": gotta give Scorsese his long awaited props. "Crash": there's no gay cowboys there. In other words: politics.

And I'm not saying those were bad movie that didn't deserve to win, I'm just saying that they won for the wrong results. And no saturnwatcher, it wasn't because anyone was given "gifts" for their votes (although I'm sure it has happened in the past, but like I said, not to all 7000 members, just even to get the vote to swing in your direction).
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

I would agree with Head Razz that Goodnight and Goodluck should have won Best Picture in 2005. It is one of the most underrated films of the past decade or so, imho.

Really? I just saw it a high profile docu-drama and not much else. Sure, it was a nice little reminder of when the news actually challenged the government, rather than be its PR service, but I didn't consider it a Best Picture winner.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: So what would you have designated as 2005's Best Picture??

The stakes where higher than that in the time period this movie is portraying. They were again in 2005 and still are now. Most of the country just hasn't figured that out yet. But we have a considerable portion of the population that claims to hate and distrust government, yet allows themselves to be spoon fed by the PR arm of one political party (despite the fact that they also claim to hate and distrust the press). It was an important movie. Too bad more people didn't see it and really think about the message.
 
The wisdom of Edward R. Murrow:
 
We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
 

No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices.
We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.
Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices - just recognize them.

That's the thing, I think 2005 was just the wrong year for that movie to be released. If it were released today, it would have gotten more notice for the reasons stated above, since it speaks even more loudly today.

I am inclined to disagree...2005 was a much more necessary time to release it. I doubt that it would get that much more attention today.

I lost track of all of Adam Sandler's "wins" that I'm beginning to suspect he might have surpassed da gas bag known as Stallone...

Stallone has won 10, while Sandler has won 5.

You're right. IMDB didn't list the nominees for Worst Ensemble because... well... too many names!
