Then, on the other hand, she (Cinnamon is a she) might have felt that one of the other nominees ("Capote", "Munich" or "Good Night, and Good Luck") should have won. Personally, I think "Capote" should have won that year, but what do I know?

Remember, the film industry is an industry. Artistic achievement, political statement, etc. is second to how much money a film makes. It's surprising that "Brokeback" didn't win only because it made more money than "Crash".

In short, she's probably wrong as far as Hollywood is concerned because she lost sight of this...

oops. "She"...sorry.

I agree with you about "Capote". Blew me away, that one.

Yes, you're right...the film industry IS an industry. THOSE are the types of politics in film that I *really* object to. Handing out awards based on $ rather than talent. I think that is just wrong!
