I sat through "Brokeback Mountain" and frankly I don't see what all the fuss was about. Honestly, it was a "so-so" movie, nothing more. I also saw 'Crash' and that was a GREAT movie. It's obvious that the Brokeback author has confused a "shocking" movie with a "good" movie. Take away the schock factor and all that's left is a somewhat dull, slow-moving melodrama.

Why is she so upset; "Brokeback Mountain" was the clear winner. Had "Brokeback" won the Oscar, it would be just a little too much for the already over-the-top themed film for those in "Fly-over" country to stomach. The producers and writers already turned up the agenda heat enough and got away with it, winning the Oscar would be way overselling the agenda. This way, coming in second, allows "Brokeback" to retain its "underdog" status. Agenda media must fly under the radar most of the time in order to slowly move society, only now and then creating a stir (as "Brokeback" did). Trying to move it too fast can have a backlash. "Brokeback" was the clear winner this year. Now the next film similar in contextual theme and talented writing and directing to "Brokeback" can go just a small step forward in normalizing a sexual fetish as a legitimate human relationship. There are many S&M and insestual, even man/boy couples waiting anxiously to be recognized as normal. We're not there yet but thanks to "Brokeback" and its loss of the Oscar, we're getting closer. Brokeback helped break the Oscar "pink" barrier. Keep it going!

I will watch crash on HBO or one of the pay channels someday, sounds like it's worth my time. I will watch Brokeback Mountain the day after I watch Fahrenheit 911, which is never. I must have a closed mind !! Hollywood is the reason we are being attacked by the Mooselims,, they think that we are all gay !

Mmmmm.....why is this cat so uppity? I mean broke back mountain is a movie about gay cowboys, or in this case gay sheep headrers. I remember that southpark (the cartoon) did this premise about 3 or 4 years ago. I laughed my arse off then because the it was just so rediculous...."gay woyboys"...That's hysterical! Uhm...And I laughed my arse off again when i saw the trailer for this flick. Talk about art imitateing life...or in this case art imitateing a cartoon. Ha! Way to go Hollywood.

I don't care about gay cowboy movies so I don't care if they won anything. The movies that are good and don't even get consideration like "The Passion" which turned out to be a mega blockbuster is never mentioned. From the first time Brokeback came on the screen the reviews raved about how wonderful it was. But after months of showings hardly anyone had seen it. Except maybe all the gay people. I am sorry your feeling were hurt because it didn't win, but, lets face it, most people don't care about movies that are anti family and promote the gay life style unless they are just trying to be politically correct to save face. So next time write a decent movie and maybe you will win.

Wow! Talk about a sore loser. What about the fact that is was not a best movie, let alone a good movie. The only reason it got nominated is because a group of academy members, who are not representative of the movie going public, nominated it. Just because i6ts nominated does not mean it deserves to win. There was once a time when best picture were BEST PICTURES, Gone With the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, Chariots of Fire, etc., etc., etc. Now Hollywood producers put out what they want to, artsy-fartsy films, with little appeal to the majority population. Maybe thats why revenues are down. NJSTEVENH

Also interesting, beyond her obvious 'sour grapes' whining, is that the box office numbers for Brokeback Mountain are not readily available. Funny, Hollywood liberals want the government to release everything we know about al-Zarqawi, but they refuse to release the number of people who have seen Brokeback Mountain.Certainly it is because paid attendance at a movie about their favorite topic is LOUSY. Not only can they not admit it, they must hide that fact. They have not even yet reached denial, you need reality for that. They are nowhere near reality.

Can anyone have a differing opinion? Brokeback was a good movie but not great. IMO, Crash was a great movie. Both touched on difficult/ challenging themes: Crash left me more impressed/ moved. As a gay man, I laugh at the belief that it was homophobia that derailed Brokeback. The truth is that Crash was a better movie. Sometimes, the truth hurts.

Isn't the point of winning a Best Picture Academy Award to show which film was truly the Best Picture? Or was it "supposed" to be given to Brokeback because it was a movie about gays? Brokeback was a good film, but it didn't deserve to win Best Picture just because of its theme. It won many other awards from the Academy anyway. Quit whining already.

I don't know where ANNIE PROULX lives, but if she ever thought that the movie industry in America would give the screen adaptation of her story a "best picture" award, she's as detached from reality as she can get.I have not seen either Crash or Brokeback Mountain because quite honestly, there is nothing about the content of either movie that seems worth the time. Box office reciepts incdicate that over 90% of the movie going public reached similar conclusions: both movies are just products of insider hype. From what I've read, neither film is very good: Brokeback is extremely dull, while Crash is just a catalog of ridiculous left wing stereotypes that are reflective of Hollywood's contempt for middle America. It was political correctness, not sound business judgement that got both films nominated for Oscars in teh first place. The plunging viewer ratings for The Oscars and dropping attendance at movie theaters indicate that the notion that Academy-awarded movies ar rubbish is not just my opinion: it is what most people think.Ms. Proulx's conspiracy theories about why the Academy did not give her adapted story the "best picture" are hard to reconcile with anything said by Academy members, and seem to have been made up by Ms. Proulx herself.If the movie business does not want to experience further box office and other revenue declines, they need to take a good look at the crap they've been showering with awards lately junk it all. Either that, or the actors, producers, directors, etc. had all better plan to soon look for other paying jobs.

Crash was possibly one of the worst movies of all time! It got voted for because there were so many "Stars" in it - they got to play people who were more blatantly bigots than joey jim bob from Alabama!Crash slaped you in the face with it's message - WOW - I need to be hit over the head with reality!!The convoluted connections between scenes was contrived - not artistic. This was no more than 5 afternoon TV specials combined with four letter words in it. Pity the people who shell out for a rental or purchase it?

When my wife and I saw Crash it shift the ground we stood on. We talked about it for days afterwards. We loved it, nothing could be taken for granted and such a well crafted screen play. We told all of our friends to see it. I did'nt watch the Oscars because of the hype for BM - what a suprise! Sanity, reason and good taste ruled. Eat your hat Ms. Priux

I don't live in LA but I loved Crash. I enjoyed the interesting storyline, good acting, plot twists and turns, and the way it all tied together in the end. The language didn't bother me and the "racism" themes are simply facts of life for most of us, and I thought they were handled pretty well. If not for the Crash director now planning a project to bash my President, I'd own this movie.

I think Roger Ebert said it best. Crash won because it was a better film. Nothing to do with gay cowboys or ungay cowboys. Crash was simply the better film. The Oscar is for BEST film, not the most controversial. End of story. Please read Roger's comments.

Didn't Clooney say something about Hollyweird being a little out of touch? Only slightly George. Between the off camera brainless yammerings of these self anointed intellectual savants and the political/social propaganda, the studios have saved me a bit of popcorn money this year by not having any incentive to go to see anything - other than penguins, a lion, and one big monkey. The best and most telling part of the Oscars was when one of the easily-forgetable winners said that "movies can be either a mirror to reflect, or a hammer to form society", and saw his work as a hammer; well I guess you can hold that view of society when you are looking through the lens of your lower colon.

Puhleeze! The acceptance speeches and comments patting themselves on the back for their bravery in making such a controversial movie in such a puritanical society make me laugh. Brokeback was not the shocking groundbreaking movie that those associated with it would like to believe, it's just one more gay-subject-matter movie in a long line of them: Philadelphia, Birdcage, Midnight in the Garden of G&E, Making Love, Personal Best, etc. etc. etc. going back to the 80's & before. Not to mention regular TV like Will & Grace and cable like Queer as Folk and the L Word, both of which were good shows that even a straight-conservative like me enjoyed until the they climbed up on the persecution cross, dove head-first into the pity pool and OD’d on the conservative bashing. Gay subject matter films are really passé & mundane at best. Actually, one of the most shocking and controversial films made in opposition to perceived public opinion and the politically correct overdosing climate was “The Passion of Christ” because it went against the current of what was considered relevant and marketable. How many Oscars did it win? More important, with the ‘mysterious’ slumping box office revenues, how much money did the Passion take in? The Chronicles of Narnia? How much for Brokeback?Here’s what Hollywood doesn’t get, the ‘mystery’ is only in Hollywood, not the fly-over zone.

Brokeback is something new. New plot and story line. Crash, we see it everyday and not many seem to learn from it. Racism is still being practiced.OK, How often peoples lives end up perfectly like it did in "crash". I watched and enjoyed it very much. But when I saw it the second time, I was shocked the things I didn't notice the first time. Not realistic at all!!! UNREAL!!! Some can relate to it, not many. Racism has been talked about for the longest time. It is still being practiced. People simply don't want to comply. And people are "OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY". Not only about silly-rich-dominated-and-motivated-votes, but also with racism and homosexuality. Homosexuality is an important issue in today's society. Finally, people are able to have the freedom of practicing their sexual orientation - in some cases....See "Crash" again, and you will know it is "Trash".

So E. Annie didn't have any problem when Hollywood adapted her story into a script and abandoned the latino identity of the characters she wrote? I guess if somebody is writing you a check they are cool, if not they are "Trash."Crash did well because it resonates with people who live in L.A. Ms. Proulx, a New Hampshire resident, couldn't understand that. I doubt she sees much of the true L.A. when she is flown out there and told by movie studios how wonderful she is.

Wait a minute! I read an article after the nomination and before the awards that quoted Annie as saying, "the story was not a gay story, it was just a love story expressing universal emotions." Now, she seems exorcised at the electors, calling them "out of touch" and "segregated". Make up your mind, Annie!

The movie was boring that is why it did not do well at the Oscars. I find it hard to beleive it was based on the fact that it was a gay movie that it did not do well.I seem to remember a movie called Philadelphia that did quite well.Great movies win and Crash was a great movie that made people stop and think that is what great Art does.Lets face it Brokeback Mtn is a 4th date rental come over for dinner so i can show you how sensitive i am new girlfriend movie.Nothing more nothing less.

American Homophobes or even regulars are not responsible for any communities failure. Brokeback Mountain has over imposed itself on the American public and single handedly has come very close to destroying America's perception of the Western Cowboy theme. This theme should have been left alone and never screwed with. This theme is American Iconoclastic and represents tough and rugged charactors. John Wayne is spinning in his grave! Clint Eastwood must be glad he dosent do Westerns anymore. If there is a market for this product, it's certainly not mainstream America. Clearly people relize that this movie plays primarily to the homosexual community of which it was intended. Regardless of the writer, producer, director, or it's actors, unfortunately when the American public is imposed upon this way, we ignore it! Why would anybody question it's lack of acceptence? If a movie has homosexual themes, then it should only be marketed to that sector of the community. Realistically, this movie should have been produced for home video or Bravo or Sundance Channel only. The Oxogen Network, Lifetime Networks, We Channel etc. plays primarily to its key demographic.... Women!

Sour grapes, which is quite disappointing from such an acclaimed author.I personally preferred Crash to the movie Brokeback Mountain. The issues presented in both movies are important and both movies were interesting, however, I prefer Crash and was happy it won over Brokeback.The issues in Crash are not those insular to LA. They exist in every culture in every town and especially every large city in the world. Such an about-the-world, cosmopolitan author should know this. The academy that chose Crash over Brokeback is a diverse one, not an insular one as suggested by this author. I would venture to guess that the publishing industry is, however.

Ms. Proulx stated in December she made these characters up from thin air. Hence, the superimposition of her fantasy onto Wyoming does not make the characters reflective of that world. On top of that, Larry McMurtry re-wrote Proulx's story line so why doesn't she blame him. The real world saw Annie Proulx's story for what it was - payback to Wyoming for the gay kid who was murdered several years ago. Take a load off, Annie.

ANNIE PROULX is a lesbian. It is no wonder that she feels the way she does. Her book, her movie, and her life, as she lives it, is all that matters to her. She may be passionate about it and some others, but the rest of us could care less. I haven't seen either movie, but isn't she happy that the Best Actor went to the guy who played a homo in Capote?? What? Not good enough? May the better movie, or better social issue win, and apperantly it did. What happened to entertainmnet? Why do all of the winners have to be a f**king social issue? This is exactly why Hollywood is suffering. Because we want to go to see an entertaining movie to get away from life's troubles.

My primary views,1) Very ungracious of Annie to be such a public sore loser!2) Stories from both films, controversial and current.3) Brokeback: From a literary (story telling) point of view, only growth by characters were their private parts, and realization they liked the same sex for sex. Also, not (really) a new story. Stories about being married but... doing adultery are not new, even, as fall as I am concerned where they involve the same sex.3) Crash: From a literary point of view, growth by nearly all characters regarding their strengths, weaknesses and relationships and subsequent evolution due to those revelations/experiences. 4) Crash also had superior direction and editing in light of the many stories which were seamlessly interwoven. For me, this alone demonstrates a higher (better) quality of movie making which is part of the criteria for chosing best picture.

Brokeback Mountain is not opening doors for homosexuals. It is also not raising awareness or granting liberty to oppressed men who just want to be accepted for who they are. BM is propaganda, it is a farce. Homosexuals have already achieved the freedom in this country to do what and whom they please, nobody is stopping them. Generally speaking they enjoy a middle to upper class economic status, the means to a good education, well-paying jobs, and security to practice their own chosen lifestyles. The idea they are an oppressed minority is a lie perpetuated by movies like BM which uses good looking, recognizable actors like Ledger and Gyllenhall to further a political agenda pure and simple. The homosexual movement is a radical organization that evidently has added major motion pictures to its lobbying efforts in order to push the message into even more outlets then ever before, but it has less to do with personal choices about sexuality then it does with a mass effort at socializing an ideology. An overtly anti-God ideology at that. Which masks itself as freedom loving and intellectually superior to all other forms of living. An even bigger quandry is the outcry about BM being a more important current trend than the racism of Crash. Simply put, homosexuality is not a modern issue that we are only now learning about. It has been practiced ever since Biblical times and then some to the detriment of every society it has been practiced under, history will corraborate this fact. The reason it is not openly accepted as societal doctrine, as the leftist social engineers would have us believe, is because it is a fundamentally debasing activity. The problems and dangers of homosexuality is rarely if ever discussed and in fact is actively being suppressed by the same groups who taut their own liberty seeking attitudes. Annie Proulx is an accidental voice in America who has benefited from all the millions of dollars, talented Hollywood filmmakers, brilliant marketing strategists and targeted release dates to proclaim that she has been robbed of something that in her mind should just be granted to her. I guess there is no shame in Annie's world.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences used a made-for-TV-movie like "Crash" as a safe alternative to snub a seminal masterpiece like "Brokeback Mountain." In doing so they've disgraced themselves. Their choice for best picture was breathtakingly out of sync with the global cinematic consensus.In her rant against the Academy Proulx speaks for millions of us. Thank you Annie for telling the Academy folks where they can stick their Oscar. These cowardly homophobes with their Oscar debacle have made themselves irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.

I thought movies got an oscar for being the best movie, not for being about "current issues" or "culture". Which might explain why only one movie in the top 20 grossing movies of 2005, "Walk the Line" at 16, was nominated for anything. Shouldn't the fact of how well a movie does, point to which movies are the best?
