The Annual Hollywood 'Sleaze Awards"

R7fel Note:

"Walk the Line", "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", "Syriana", "King Kong", "The Constant Gardener", and "Cinderella Man" are snubbed as were Clooney and Crowe for gay agenda tripe like "Brockback Mountain" and "Capote". Welcome to the sleazy world of Hollywood.

'Brokeback Mountain' leads Oscar nods

"Brokeback Mountain," the story of two male ranch hands who become romantically involved, led all films with eight nominations for the 78th annual Academy Awards.

"Brokeback," based on a short story by E. Annie Proulx, picked up nods for best picture, best director (Ang Lee), best actor (Heath Ledger), best supporting actress (Michelle Williams) and best supporting actor (Jake Gyllenhaal). Its screenplay adaptation, by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana, also received a nomination.

Tuesday was also a big day for George Clooney, who picked up nominations for best director and co-writing the best original screenplay ("Good Night, and Good Luck"), as well as a pick for best supporting actor for his performance as a CIA agent in "Syriana."

"Good Night, and Good Luck" also received a nomination for best picture, while "Syriana" earned a nod for best original screenplay.

Other nominees for best picture are "Capote," "Crash" and "Munich."

"Walk the Line," the Johnny Cash biography that has earned acting honors for stars Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, was shut out of the best picture race, but both Phoenix and Witherspoon were nominated in lead acting categories.

Other nominees for best actor are Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Capote"), Heath Ledger ("Brokeback Mountain"), David Strathairn ("Good Night, and Good Luck") and Terrence Howard ("Hustle & Flow").

The nominees for best actress are Felicity Huffman ("Transamerica"), Charlize Theron ("North Country"), Judi Dench ("Mrs. Henderson Presents") and Keira Knightley ("Pride and Prejudice").

The nominees for best supporting actor are Paul Giamatti ("Cinderella Man"), George Clooney ("Syriana"), Matt Dillon ("Crash"), Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback Mountain") and William Hurt ("A History of Violence").

The nominees for best supporting actress are Rachel Weisz ("The Constant Gardener"), Amy Adams ("Junebug"), Catherine Keener ("Capote"), Frances McDormand ("North Country") and Michelle Williams ("Brokeback Mountain").

The nominees for best director are Paul Haggis ("Crash"), Ang Lee ("Brokeback Mountain"), Bennett Miller ("Capote"), George Clooney ("Good Night, and Good Luck") and Steven Spielberg ("Munich").

The nominees for best original screenplay are "Crash," "Good Night, and Good Luck," "Match Point," "The Squid and the Whale," and "Syriana."

The nominees for best adapted screenplay are "Brokeback Mountain," "Capote," "The Constant Gardener," "A History of Violence" and "Munich."

"Howl's Moving Castle," "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" and "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit" were the nominees for best animated feature. Interestingly, none of the three were computer animated.

The awards will be held March 5 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, California. Jon Stewart is the host.
