Brokeback Mountain, the story of unfulfilled love between two homosexual cowboys, was nominated in eight categories and had been the runaway favorite for the best picture award after cleaning up in the Golden Globes and Baftas.
But although it won three Oscars, including the Best Director award for the Taiwanese Ang Lee, the year's most talked-about film ended up losing on the final prize of the night.
"Now I'm mad they made me change the title," said Larry McMurtry, the veteran Western writer who shared the award for best adapted screenplay.
The original title was "Backcrack Mountain."
In related news, the town council of Crystal Lake, Illin., has voted 3-2 to approve holding a "homosexual Olympics" style sporting event this coming summer. Events are reported to include, among others, the all-coxswain sculling race, Greek-style wrestling, bitch volleyball, gymnasties, and a 1,000-meter sashay. Those who wish to compete will be required to perform a homosexual sex act in the presence of the judges. "We don't want any impostors," said Butch Manley, one of the organizers of the meet. "Every entrant will have to prove he or she is truly homosexual."

Since the celebration will be "discrinatory" against straights, then you might want to get in there and break down that barrier or recommomend that they change the name to "Pokeback Mountain"

Other things that sadden the homosexual community: Mismatched purse and shoes, serving red wine with poultry, the Villiage People cancelled the reunion tour, no new Ricky Martin albums in years, wearing white after Labor Day, Richard Gere married... a woman, the entire 'villiage' is out of latte.
