"Crash" -- Paul Haggis' wonderful film about race relations in LA -- took home the "Best Picture" award at the 78th Annual Academy Awards, upsetting front-runner "Brokeaback Mountain" and shattering all predictions boards, including mine.
In part because of this outcome, I scored 20 of 24 correct, missing on "Best Picture", "Cinematography", "Documentary Short", and "Animated Short." But in two of those categories, I picked the front-runner, which missed on both.
I think Tom O'Neill of the LA Times called it right when he predicted this awards outcome due to homeophobia in the Academy.
More on this, and my good time at the San Francisco Academy of Friends Party, later today.
