Brokeback Mountain author Annie Proulx has some nasty words about the Oscars and Crash winning Best Picture...
"Rumour has it that Lions Gate inundated the academy voters with DVD copies of Trash, excuse me, Crash a few weeks before the ballot deadline."
"Roughly 6,000 film industry voters, most in the Los Angeles area, many living cloistered lives behind wrought-iron gates or in deluxe rest-homes, out of touch not only with the shifting larger culture and the yeasty ferment that is America these days, but also out of touch with their own segregated city, decide which films are good."
"Hollywood loves mimicry, the conversion of a film actor into the spittin' image of a once-living celeb. But which takes more skill, acting a person who strolled the boulevard a few decades ago and who left behind tapes, film, photographs, voice recordings and friends with strong memories, or the construction of characters from imagination and a few cold words on the page?"

I will be the first to say that I LOVE Brokeback, but this is a bit disappointing. I understand being upset but this is a bit much.

Wow. Annie needs to chill out. I'm with you, Dir. Brokeback should have won but this is sour grapes with a bitter, bitter aftertaste.
