Brokeback powers into cinematic history
The drop is turning into a tide. Rather the tide is roaring into a stream. Brokeback Mountain received 8 Oscar nominations, among them best picture and honours for actor Heath Ledger and director Ang Lee. Jake Gyllenhaal also received a nod for Best Supporting Actor. Good going, Jake, this more than makes for the Globe upset (and you can attend the ceremony on March the 5th now, right?)
Meanwhile, India's entry Paheli (yawn) failed to make the grade. Neither did the Shabana Azmi starrer Morning Raga, sent as an independent entry.
