Congrats to Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana for a great screenplay, and my THANKS to them for so faithfully and lovingly working with Annie Proulx's unparalled, luminescent short story.  Thanks also to Annie for bringing Ennis and Jack to us.

And did you notice?  Two Wyoming gay tragedies got noms:

He pressed his face into the fabric and breathed in slowly through his mouth and nose, hoping for the faintest smoke and mountain sage and salty sweet stink of Jack but there was no real scent, only the memory of it, the imagined power of Brokeback Mountain of which nothing was left but what he held in his hands. Make the pledge! Go Back to Brokeback whenever, however you can. Join the BTB Project.

What an excellent news. Thanks and congrats.
Just think about how many years passed since Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana wrote the screenplay - this award should really mean a lot to them, as well as Annie Proulx and everybody who contributed to the movie.
"I loved it. Shocking. Surprising. The guy who financed my movie did that too. He's a very mild mannered chap from Minnesota and we'd just screened the latest cut of my film and he asked if I wanted to see it. I was thinking, 'OK, this really square, straight guy,' and he showed me this movie. It's amazing.

"They're really good those boys and they did a great job. It's very brave of them."

Hey Jakeofrome,

Well spotted! I didn't notice that. I think you're right to put coincidence in inverted commas...

Actually *I* spotted it, but ... ;-)  I'm generous.  Thanks to Frog123 for the complete list, or I wouldn't have even seen it.
