Oscar Fight

Anyone else notice the similarities between the Oscar sniping, and the Christian sniping that happened over "The Passion of the Christ." (i.e. If you criticized "TPOTC," you were criticizing Christ and Christianity as a whole - not just criticizing a movie on its merits).

It's amusing to see it happening between supporters of "Crash" and "Brokeback Mountain." Charges of homophobia are running rampant. Roger Ebert has a good analysis of it.

Of course, I didn't see any of the movies nominated so I can't weigh in with my ever-so important opinion. (sarcasm)
