Best Picture Oscar Winners Draft Results

4:28 PM

"Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I'm sorry. Wow. This draft was totally unexpected. There are so many people I need to thank. Just so many people. This project...this whole thing is the product of so many people. So many people make this possible. Wow, this statue is heavy...

I'd like to thank the Academy for respecting my work. Heck, I'd like to thank them for reading it in the first place. To be honored for my accomplishments just makes me...it just overwhelms me. I've been working so hard, all of us have, at this for, what? 8 whole months now? This is just amazing, all of this work.

But I need to thank people. Like Albert and Bryan, and Sarah and Chris for participating. And people like Dan and Justin who were there from the beginning and who have supported me, even though they can't always participate. And then Sydney, so loved by so many for her contributions to me. She's great. Thank You! And sweet, dear Adam. Making almost every draft, a true champion. And the...

Turn that music off! I'm not finished. I'm not done! No. You let Roberto Benigni act like a circus carny on speed. And you won't even let me thank God!

There we go. Like I was saying, I'd like to thank the man who made this all possible. Darren Delaye. You're a champion. And the bloggers. And the people of blogspot.com. I know, I know, I'm not supposed to plug people, but they do such a great job and...look at me, I'm tearing up.

So finally, I'd like to thank the readers, without you this wouldn't be possible. And I know that the only people who read this are the people I mentioned in my speech, but I don't care. Thank you to the audience, you give me the energy and the comments to keep this going. Thank you. San Dimas High School football rules! Goodnight!"

I just want to make this public: I am horrified that I accidentally ended up with Shakespeare in Love AND Titanic. AND THAT'S WHY YOU ALWAYS PARTICIPATE IN THE WHOLE DRAFT, instead of sending chris a list of your picks. :' (

Aww, shucks. Now I'm tearing up.

Nothing since 2000, huh? You guys really are old school.

Well...Million Dollar Baby, whoever wants to see that again? Lord of the Rings had no business winning, I mean come on it’s a worse version of Return of the Jedi and that didn’t win. Chicago - blah musical, had no IDEA what was going on. A Beautiful Mind was a nice movie, but I just couldn’t get that image of Jennifer Connolly doing the done and dirty for a little H out of my head, plus I mean it wasn’t a spectacular movie...

But you are right we are old school, and some of us might believe the academy is too grandfatherish to let movies like Eternal Sunshine win, which undoubtedly would have been selected.

Oddly enough, I agree with Albert here. Recent movies just haven't had enough time to prove that they can age well and become true classics, proudly bearing forward the rich legacy of Academy tradition. You know, like "Titanic."

I still can't believe "A Beautiful Mind" won best picture -- but I guess it was still a better choice than the other movies out that year.

And a "Double True" to whoever said the academy refuses to reward truly deserving films, which has resulted in the snubbing of movies like "Momento", "Eternal Sunshine" and "Road to Perdition" that should be winning awards.
