The whole Academy Award debacle isn't worth writing about (i hate all these commentaries about the "social meaning" of the Academy Award; come on, people, get real), but one comment (reported over the wires) overheard at the Governor's Ball (this may be apocryphal, but maybe not) was Robert Altman's comment about the win of "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain": "Thank God, because i couldn't stand the idea of having to watch another fucking boy-on-boy romance! I want to do a girl-on-girl romance!" (Maybe he was telling the truth when he said that he never sees other movies, because where has he been? He's never seen "Personal Best" or "The Hunger" or even "Thelma and Louise"?)

(That's why i love Altman: he'll say what other people will try to censor.)
