Trivia

When Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas presented the award for Best Picture, rather than reading it on the spot, Kirk opened the envelope and tore the card in half. He then handed the other half to his son, Michael, and together they announced the winner: Chicago (2002). See more »

I enjoyed it
28 April 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

Best Picture for 'Chicago', normally I definitely would not agree. Now I can agree because the most important Oscars did go to separate movies. In my opinion 'Chicago' is more a nice movie than a really good one, but together with Best Picture the only real thing the film won was Best Supporting Actress for Catherine Zeta-Jones and that one she deserved. 'The Hours' won Best Actress with Nicole Kidman, again deserved I think, so another good film did win something. Best Original Screenplay went to 'Hable Con Ella', a great foreign language film. Best Director was Roman Polanski, Best Actor was Adrien Brody, both for 'The Pianist'. This was my favorite film over the year 2002, and may be that was the main reason I didn't bother 'Chicago'. 'The Pianist' also won for Best Adapted Screenplay. I also liked it a little that 'Gangs of New York' didn't win anything. It is a nice film, but definitely not great.

Other things I enjoyed: 'Bowling for Columbine' winning for Best Documentary. It is a great documentary, Michael Moore is a great filmmaker, and I enjoyed his speech as well. You are not supposed to do political statements, I agree, but I kind of expected him to do it, and so I was not disappointed. Steve Martin did had some nice jokes, especially the ones with the help of the camera. The way they used a great actor like Jack Nicholson was very funny. The last thing I want to mention is one of the best acceptance speeches I have ever heard. His speech together with the kiss Adrien Brody gave to Halle Berry was the best thing of the evening. I am ready for next year.
