Brokeback Mountain may have controversially lost out on the Academy Award for Best Picture to Crash in 2006, but at least director Ang Lee could console himself with the fact that that the film won the Critics' Choice equivalent. Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Best Actor prize for Capote, as he did at the Oscars, whilst Reese Witherspoon, usually more favoured by voters at the People's Choice Awards, also took Best Actress at the Oscars and Critics' Choice, but didn't win Favourite Female Movie Star at the People's Choice.

That honour went to Sandra Bullock, while Johnny Depp, as per usual, took the male equivalent. The People's Choice voters once again displayed their fondness for franchises by voting for voting Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith as Favourite Motion Picture.
