    Yes, I like to see happiness spread around too. The Oscar seems to really boost a career.

    I think this is the first Fantasy movie, that has ever received Best Picture, and it's about time. Usually the Academy ignores comedy, sci-fi, and fantasy, for some long tortuous drama about someone having to overcome some huge hurdle ( A Beautiful Mind ). Return of The King will be remembered years and years from now, and this time the Academy got it right. I was so glad Sean Penn, also got Best Actor, Bill Murray was good, but no comparison, with the depth and range Sean Penn displayed in Mystic River. The only sad note for me on the Oscars this year, is that Dianne Keaton did not win. Charlize was great, but if I ever wanted a tie aka Hepburn/Streisand it was this year, they were both deserving. Best moment for me, was when Canada won best foreign film, for The Barbarian Invasions, we haven't won before, and this is a truly great movie.

    I am a HUGE Ringnut and am very happy that Peter Jackson and Co got the recognition they deserved for their extremely hard work.

    But I feel bad that other movies had to go up against it that really deserved an award for their effects and makeup.

    Namely, Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Would have been nice to see Pirates... pick up just one award last night.....

    Big congratulations to Return of the King. They deserve it. All the hobbits sitting next to each other. It was so cute. Billy was a doll. Dom was sexy, naturally.
