And the Oscars are over. Of course, LAGAAN didn't win, No Man's Land did, as I had expected. All that publicity helped A Beautiful Mind nip twin honours for Best Film and Best Director (Ron Howard??? Aaaaaaah! Eat My Dust!)

According to an IMDB poll, the biggest surprise at the Oscars was that The Fellowship of the Ring was largely shunned. Looks like not too many people minded Ron Howard's win. Maybe I'm just too hard on him. (After all, I had to pick SOMEBODY).

Well played, Lagaan XI says Bollywood.

And not to forget the complement to the Oscars, the Razzies{Official site}

Denzel Washington's feature film directorial debut to be released later this year. The film tells the story of an aspiring screenwriter who suffers an abusive childhood, joins the navy and works for a time as a security guard at a movie studio. Interesting.
