2005 CFA Wrap-Up
Sideways won Best Picture, but only two other awards in a strange year for the CFAs.
|So what was
the big winner? Well, there wasn't one. But Jim Caviezel's hard work and
perservance through pneumonia, broken ribs, 12 inch gashes in his back,
broken collar bones and being struck by lightning paid off with a Best Actor
win. Natalie Portman stripped down and danced her way to Best Actress.
Rising CFA star Scarlett Johansson won her first Crown in her second try
while former Wings mechanic Thomas Haden Church (aka Lowell Mather) acted
his way to his first Crown win.
Films with multiple wins included Troy (2 - Art Direction, Costume) and Team America (2), fuck yeah! The hilarious hollywood-Bruckheimer send up took the prize for Best Score and Best Original Script. Dodgeball also overcame the underdog role and won Best Cast for its wide range of crazy and unexplainable characters.
Now that the crap of 2004 is over we can look forward to 2005 with Best Picture contenders Kingdom of Heaven and The New World waiting in the wings to return the tradition of having long, sweeping epics taking home the top prize. Also, 2005 could see a new record breaker for most Clown Nominations and wins with Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Clowntown has had enough of Lucas' crap and is sure to honor the movie with its just rewards, provided it lives up to the hype and is a big piece of Bantha poodoo.
