San Diego
Picture: King Kong
Director: Bennett Miller, Capote
Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Capote

S. Actor: Jeffrey Wright, Broken Flowers
S. Actress: Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener
O. Screenplay: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
A. Screenplay: Capote
Documentary: Grizzly Man
Foreign:Innocent Voices
Animated: Howl's Moving Castle

Never thought Kong would make it, and I still don't. Great to see Joan Allen finally receive an award! Maybe her fortunes are reversing at just the right moment. Weisz gets added boost. Jeffrey Wright? Broken Flowers ain't happening I don't think. Great to see Kiss Kiss Bang Bang though! It'd be great if it could get Shane Black that seemingly last open spot in the oscars. Howl's Moving Castle! Hopefully this will help it get seen by more voters.

Las Vegas
Picture: Brokeback Mountain
Director: Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain
Actor: Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain
Actress: Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line
S. Actor: Matt Dillon, Crash
S. Actress: Frances McDormand, North Country
Screenplay: Crash
Documentary: March of the Penguins
Foreign: Kung Fu Hustle
Animated: Wallace & Gromit

Yay! Brokeback, Ang and Heath! Good news for Matt Dillon. all of the four acting winners for LV went on to be nommed at the Oscars last year (and two won). So, Frances may very well be resurging. Kung Fu Hustle? I'm so disappointed now that I've seen that movie. Yay for W&G though!

There were also a few other critics groups that announced but I need to go get ready to go out for dinner with Hanz and Georgie. Sailor's Rest we're going to. Very hoity.

Any time Jeffrey Wright gets recognized, I'm a happy camper.
