IFC - BBM wins 2
« Reply #4 on: Mar 04, 2006, 06:51 PM »
BBM won 2 awards - best feature and best director.

As part of the program, each best feature nominee is "saluted" with a song. BBM was saluted with a song based on "On Top of Old Smokey" sung by Peter Gallagher.

"On top of the mountain,  All covered with sheep...."

Pretty funny. I'll try to catch all the words on the rebroadcast on AMC tonight.

Words to the song Peter Gallagher sang about BBM to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey"

On top of old Borkeback
All covered with sheep
Two amorous cowboys
Arenít getting much sleep

I wish I could quit you
Says one to the next
Though then Iíd be lonely
And quite undersexed

Both cowboys have children
Both cowboys have wives
Which means that both cowboys
Have frustrating lives

Thereís one consolation
To even the scores
When youíre a gay cowboy
Your closetís outdoors!!!!

Sure wish you had put a **********SPOILER ALERT**********.

The awards aren't coming on for another 37 minutes on the West coast.



But I guess it is really my fault. I should have known better than to log on this early and that there would be excited people wanting to talk about it.  I'll remember next time.

I loved Sarah Silverman's joke about seeing BBM with her boyfriend!  VERY filthy.  :-D  Heath liked it too, after the shock wore off.

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.

From IMBD:

Brokeback Wins Best Feature at Independent Spirit Awards
Four films took home two honors each at the Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Feature winner Brokeback Mountain. The heavy Oscar favorite also nabbed Best Director for Ang Lee (also Oscar nominated ), and the acting winners were also four people who will be attending the Academy Awards on Sunday: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Matt Dillon (Crash), and Amy Adams (Junebug). Winning two alongside Brokeback were Capote (Best Male Lead and Screenplay), Transamerica (Best Female Lead and First Screenplay), and Crash (Best Supporting Male and First Feature). Also taking home awards were the aforementioned Junebug, Good Night, and Good Luck (Cinematography), Paradise Now (Foreign Film), and in a bit of surprise, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, which bested Grizzly Man for the documentary award. Sadly, the most nominated film, The Squid and the Whale, walked away with nothing.

Couple of pics can be found here:  http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/2006/gallery/spirit06-press/1
Ya gotta look for 'em.  I tried to save and post, but couldn't and figure they'll show up.

Can't say I like that song Peter Gallagher sang.  Reckon' I don't have much of a sense of humor when "outsiders" make fun of OUR movie.

What was Silverman's joke?  Can you post it, or would Froggy turn green?

No, that's not the scene I was thinking of, Froggy.  It was when she was on stage, and talking about how she and her boyfriend had gone to see Brokeback, but her boyfriend had to close his eyes during the sex scene in the tent....

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.

They cut immediately to Heath Ledger who was both stunned and laughing hard.
