Paul Jensen, professor in the communication arts department at the State University College at Oneonta, echoed Golden,s reaction to the best-picture result.
"I was surprised , and disappointed I wasn,t right," Jensen said.
Jensen said the Academy voters favored "Crash" because of its contemporary setting of a current issue , race relations.The film was angry and unretlenting, Jensen said, adding that he resisted picking it as an Oscar-winner because it made him feel manipulated.
The other four films address current issues in a more subtle way, "as opposed to a head-on confrontation," Jensen said.For instance, he said, "Brokeback Mountain" gave viewers a chance to relate to a personal story of two cowboys in love without wrestling with larger-scale public matters.
Jensen said the hometown Los Angeles setting of "Crash" also might have been a factor in the film,s favor.
Jensen agreed, saying the times he expects the awards to be made in tandem, the results are split.
Jensen said though "King Kong" was pushed aside in some Oscar categories, it will a film remembered by many people as outstanding.

In previous years, a film like "The Return of the King" would likely not have been considered for best picture, said Paul Jensen, professor of mass communication at the State University College at Oneonta.
"I think this is an exception," he said Wednesday.
Jackson has maintained consistently high quality over three films, Jensen said.
Most trilogies don't have the success of the Tolkien trilogy, Jensen said.
"Here you have one that has grown," he said.
Golden and Jensen said they thought Bill Murray would win for "Lost in Translation."
Penn might deserve the award, Jensen said.
"He's managed to step above the bad-boy image he had as a younger guy," Jensen said."It may well be time to praise him for his career achievement."
Mattison said he thought Penn and Murray would cancel each other out, giving Depp the chance for an award.
Giving Oscars to Penn and Tim Robbins, who received a best supporting actor nomination, would honor "Mystic River" for acting performances, Jensen said.

Locals predict Oscar winners, 4 Mar 2006 [cached]
Paul Jensen, professor in the communication arts department at the State University College at Oneonta, said the four films nominated other than "Brokeback Mountain" tend to have a heavy emphasis on significance.For instance, "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "Munich" concentrate on political matters, he said, and "Crash" deals with race relations, and "Capote" offers introspective and a subtle blend of public and personal issues.
"That leaves "Brokeback Mountain," which despite its impression of controversy is less a public story than a personal, even private, one," Jensen said."It permits the viewer to relate to its characters as individuals caught in a depressing, no-win situation without having to wrestle with larger-scale public matters.
"In addition, I am pleased to think that the work of a quietly polished and carefully observant filmmaker would be acknowledged at a time when excess and overkill dominate," Jensen said.
Jensen agreed that Hoffman evoked the mannerism of Capote and also the writer,s inner contradictions of "this pained and egocentric man."
"It is rare to be able to see the process of thought revealed outwardly, but Hoffman also achieves that," Jensen said.
Jensen said putting Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal of "Brokeback Mountain" into the categories of best actor and best supporting actor, respectively, may have been done to avoid a confrontation, but the division seemed unfair because each gave an impressive performance.
