    Reuters: Canada's top movie awards go "C.R.A.Z.Y."

    A French-language, gay-themed coming-of-age drama about a large Catholic family dominated Canada's Genie film awards Monday, taking home 10 prizes, including best film and director. Jean-Marc Vallee's Quebec-made "C.R.A.Z.Y." also won honors for original screenplay, actor (Michel Cote), supporting actress (Danielle Proulx) and a host of craft awards.

    AP: Lee: "Brokeback" Wasn't Meant As Statement

    Ang Lee said he never intended "Brokeback Mountain" to be a social statement about homosexuals, amid speculation the gay cowboy romance lost the Oscar best picture race because of its subject matter. The movie won best director for Lee -- making him the first Asian winner of the prize -- as well as best musical score and best adapted screenplay Sunday at the Oscar ceremony, but it lost the best-picture award to "Crash," despite having racked up several other major film awards. The upset prompted speculation that the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences wasn't prepared to hand its top prize to a movie about gays. But the Taiwanese ...

    E Online: Cruise, McCarthy Singled Out at Razzies

    Jenny McCarthy may have been singled out as this year's top Razzie recipient, but Tom Cruise's couch-jumping antics did not go unrewarded. As the star, writer and producer of 2005's little-seen, but universally panned comedy "Dirty Love," the onetime Playboy Playmate earned a trio of dishonors at Saturday's awards ceremony--namely Worst Actress, Worst Screenplay and Worst Picture. "Dirty Love" failed to sweep the six categories in which it was nominated. Worst Supporting Actress nominee Carmen Electra lost out to "House of Wax" star Paris Hilton, and McCarthy, nominated for Worst Onscreen Couple, along with Anyone Dumb Enough to Befriend or D...

    Reuters: "Brokeback" too controversial after all: writer

    Maybe a gay cowboy picture was too controversial after all, or at least that is what the legendary Western writer who adapted "Brokeback Mountain" for the screen thinks. "Perhaps the truth really is, Americans don't want cowboys to be gay," said Larry McMurtry, 69 who has spent his career challengin...
