Montana Film Grabs One Oscar, Does Not Win Best Picture
The Oscars were last night, but you could be forgiven for not hearing about who won awards and who didn't - the conversation has pretty much been dominated by the insane moment in which Will Smith walked onstage and slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith.
That moment overshadowed the rest of the night - which wasn't a great Oscars ceremony to begin with, but it had its moments. Ariana DeBose and Troy Kotsur both gave great, emotional speeches; co-host Amy Schumer had some very solid jokes during her set towards the beginning; the legion of insane Zack Snyder fans on the internet hijacked the new Twitter polls so that Justice League and Army of the Dead could win, and it was suitably hilarious.
But What About The Power of the Dog?
We've been following the development of Jane Campion's The Power of the Dog for a while now, and saw it turn into a frontrunner for Best Picture at the Oscars - especially after it got nominated for 12 awards, the most out of any film this year.
But at the end of the day, it walked away with only one - Best Director for Jane Campion. Interesting stat: that makes The Power of the Dog the first movie to only win Best Director and nothing else since 1967's The Graduate.
The Best Picture prize ended up going to CODA, which had gained a lot of steam over the last few weeks and was easily the most crowd-pleasing movie of the bunch that was nominated.
It would have been cool for a film with so many ties to Montana to have gone all the way, but hey - at least Sam Elliott's probably happy.
