“Brokeback Mountain” lost to “Crash” for Best Picture in the Oscar 2006. Well at least Brokeback’s director Ang Lee was named the Best Director, so still plenty to cheer about for the Asian community.
The first Academy award of the night is for Best Supporting Actor which goes to George Clooney for “Syriana”. Rachel Weisz later won the Best Supporting Actress with her performance in “The Constant Gardener”.
Best Actor is Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Capote”. Best Actress goes to the blonde Reese Witherspoon in “Walk the Line”.
“March of the Penguins” won the Best Documentary Feature.. I actually thought that the penguins deserved to be nominated for Best Picture as well.
In the end Brokeback Mountain claims 3 Oscars including Best Director, matching the feat are “King Kong” and “Memoirs of a Geisha”, each with 3 awards in technical categories.
