to be fair, I didn't actually see million dollar baby (yet -- keep meaning to)

But from what I've heard about it, and from the clips I've seen from it, no, I don't actually have a problem with its winning. That is exactly the kinda of film that I am ok with winning for that particular year. And Swank and Freemen are great actors and Eastwood is a great director. I was much happier with its wins than I was with say Return of the King's sweep the year before. Not only was it not the best of the LOTR films, not only does it not stand alone as a film well enough to be called best picture, it simply was not better than Mystic River or Lost in Translation (my pick)

I'm not saying the Oscars are the will of the people. Because they're not. But the Academy does have specific rules and ideals they purport to represent and I expect "the people ion California" to live up to them.
