144. and exactly how did Ang Lee win for best director?
Edited on Thu Mar-09-06 01:42 PM by onenote
If Tony Curtis and a rampant mob of Hollywood homophobes boycotted BBM, how did it win best director? I guess even without the Rampant Mob, there were enough votes for it. Which suggests that what cost BBM the best picture award wasn't the Rampant Mob (who presumably wouldn't have voted for BBM even if they had seen it); it was voters who saw BBM, but split their best picture and best director votes, possibly because they felt it was a way to honor two deserving films. How did it work out that the vote splitters gave BBM best director rather than best picture? Probably because Ang Lee was nominated, but didn't win, for best director for Crouching Tiger and the Academy likes to honor past accomplishment as well as current accomplishment.
