    A full list of the BAFTA award winners:

    No real surprises, but a shame The Constant Gardener didn't get more. If these are any pointers for the Oscars, then Brokeback Mountain looks set to do well.

    is this movie brokeback mountain really that good? i haven't seen it. i have nothing against gays. i have nothing against cowboys. but does this film really deserve all the attention? or is it winning because it is different (somehow like apple nowadays)?

    Oh of course not :rolleyes:

    How about we make you a great big sign that says "I'm not gay" that you can take to the cinema if you choose to go and see it.

    I just watched the show, yes, I think it is that good, well deserving, Crash is excellent as well.

    Still got to get round to see the 'gay shepard' flick but have to agree that Crash is a great story, I love stuff with multiple threads, one of the few films of late that actually makes you think (other than 'Dukes of Hazard' which makes you think '"Why?":confused: )

    The scene with the locksmith toward the end nearly put a tear in my eye, but luckily I'm dead tough.

    Actually I find the car crash scene in Crash very touching as well.

    For brokeback, I find the subtle and simple touch very refreshing, yet so haunting. Once you get past the "gay" thing as many has put it, it is just a love story between 2 people that can happen to anyone, makes one think about how we have live our lifes.

    He and I don't read books, we just stare at them until they give us the information!

    Maybe it's a 'Daddy' thing?

    Wait, which scene are you refering to? :confused: I'm talking about the part where the cop was going in to rescue the woman and she was screaming "don't touch me!".

    For me the scene you're talking about was OK but I simple didn't 'feel' for the characters, the cop doesn't redeem himself just by doing his job the next day and the 'bitch' doesn't help her situation either meeting with said cop, not that she's ever in the wrong 100%.

    The scene I was refering to when the locksmith comes home to his daughter just made me, and any father I'm sure, grit their teeth a little and really 'feel' the emotions.
