"Crash" wins best film Oscar

Written by: Staff

LOS ANGELES, Mar 6 (Reuters) ''Crash,'' the film drama that tells of racial bigotry and fear during a 36-hour period in Los Angeles, won the best film Oscar in an upset victory over the favorite, gay romance ''Brokeback Mountain.'' ''Crash'' headed into the Oscar ceremony in a neck-and-neck race with ''Brokeback'' for the best film award, but ''Brokeback'' was favored because it had prevailed in many earlier award races. The Oscars are given out by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and are the world's top film honors.
