Too much color on the red carpet ... Kiera Knightly - wine; Sandra Bullock - navy-blue; Charlize Theron - forest-green [with a *giant* bow, that looked ridiculous]; Jennifer Lopez - light green; Jada Pinkett Smith - bright blue; Salma Hayek - slate blue ...
Some in Basic Black: Felicity Huffman; Jennifer Aniston, Rachel Weisz ....

Okay back ...
Talking about "Constant Gardener"
I think the storyline was very powerful & interesring; but somehow there was something missing - I didnt enjoy the movie very much. As far as Rachel Weisz' acting is concernerd; I didnt find it outstanding ...
though there are good chances she might grab the awards.

Comeon do you expect me to run for cover????

Prashanth -> I thought you've seen Crash"?

Yeah, I've seen Crash, but just the one.

Just saw the award ceremony, and wow, you're pretty good at this soothsaying thing :)

I had this childish fight with my flatmate, he said Brokeback mountain will win the best movie award and Crash will win the best direction award, and I said, no no it will be vice versa; and I was right, for once in my life...

so capote didn't really go anywhere...
i have seen junebug! its a nice movie! very artsy!
I think these weird movies always end up winning.
Lasts years fat cat was Million Dollar Baby - another offbeat movie with Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank.
Somehow..I don't like watching awards ceremonies..
I like to watch the host do his stuff..but not for anything more..

Ramani ->
Well Philip Seymore Hoffman did win award as Best Actor for "Capote". Anyways its a very nice movie!

I like award ceremonies; and its probabbly the only place where all the big names come together. where else would you see Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman, George Clooney, Salma Hayek, Uma Thurman ... & ... & ... all together ...
AND .... all dressed to perfection!!!!

"Junebug" hmmmm I got no idea
