Clip - 'Bowling For Columbine' CHEERS,TEARS AND JEERS AT 'WAR' OSCARS The razzle-dazzle musical satire 'Chicago' won the Academy Award as best picture Sunday, while top acting honours struck a more somber note: Adrien Brody as a Holocaust survivor in 'The Pianist' and Nicole Kidman as suicidal novelist Virginia Woolf in 'The Hours.' Reflecting the serious mood as America fights Iraq, the red carpet arrivals for the 75th Academy Awards were muted as stars declined to talk to the few press invited to cover their silent arrivals. But the stars let their glamourous outfits do the talking. Oscar nominee Renee Zellweger showed the way with a tight embroidered chiffon red gown with delicate spaghetti straps by Carolina Herrera. She wore no necklace or earrings - just a 16-carat red ruby ring on her left hand. But with no organised stands for fans, only a few determined fans star spotters turned out to enjoy the fashion statements. Instead, demonstrators on both sides of the war issue gathered near Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. Anti-war protesters held signs such as 'Bush: Dumb and Dangerous' and 'Oscar for Peace.' Half a block from the area where stars arrived, supporters of U.S. troops in Iraq chanted 'USA, USA,' and held a banner reading 'God Bless America.' In a ceremony overshadowed by the U.S.-led war in Iraq, 'Chicago' became the first musical since 1968's 'Oliver!'" to win the top Oscar and also took home the most trophies, six. Its other awards were supporting actress for Catherine Zeta-Jones, and four technical honors including costume design and art direction. World events sparked several emotional highlights, including Brody's tearful speech urging prayers for peace and an attack on President Bush and the war by filmmaker Michael Moore, winner of the best-documentary Oscar for 'Bowling for Columbine.' Small pins inspired by Picasso's 'Dove of Peace' were visible on the lapels and dresses of some people in attendance. Chris Cooper won as best supporting actor for his role as a scraggly haired, toothless horticultural poacher in 'Adaptation.' Brody's victory was something of a surprise, as was the awarding of the best-director Oscar to Roman Polanski, also for 'The Pianist.' Polanski has been an exile from the United States since fleeing 25 years ago to avoid sentencing for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. 'The Pianist' also won the adapted-screenplay award for Ronald Harwood, giving it a total of three, while Pedro Almodovar earned the original-screenplay prize for 'Talk to Her.' 'Chicago' came in with a leading 13 nominations, followed by the crime epic 'Gangs of New York' with 10. But 'Gangs' was shut out in every category, including best director, where Martin Scorsese was a sentimental favourite. 'Chicago' was adapted from the Bob Fosse stage hit about two Jazz Age murderesses using their jailhouse celebrity to further their singing careers. Zeta-Jones was the first performer to win an acting Oscar for a musical since Liza Minnelli for 1972's 'Cabaret.' In 'Chicago,' Zeta-Jones played a jailed vaudeville scamp scheming for celebrity after slaying her adulterous husband and sister. Due to deliver her second child with husband and Oscar winner Michael Douglas in a few weeks, Zeta-Jones joined co-star and fellow supporting-actress nominee Queen Latifah in the Oscar performance of 'I Move On,' the best-song nominee from 'Chicago.' Brody played the title character in 'The Pianist,' based on the real-life story of musician Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jew who survived World War II by hiding from the Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto. "This film is a tribute to his survival. My experience making this film made me very aware of the sadness and the dehumanization of people in times of war, and the repercussions of war. And whether you believe in God or Allah, may he watch over you, and let's pray for a peaceful and swift resolution," Brody said, fighting back tears and drawing a standing ovation. Documentary winner 'Bowling for Columbine' is Moore's alternately hilarious and horrifying examination of gun violence in America. Moore, a harsh critic of the Bush administration, railed at the Academy: "We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush. Shame on you," Moore said, amid a mix of boos and applause from the crowd. Kidman's Oscar win was a Hollywood ending for her after a turbulent couple of years. She had a miscarriage in 2001 and broke up with husband Tom Cruise , in whose shadow she had lingered throughout their 11-year relationship. Kidman emerged as a big star in her own right later that year with 'Moulin Rouge,' which earned her a best-actress Oscar nomination, and the horror hit 'The Others.' In 'The Hours,' Kidman played suicidal author Virginia Woolf, wearing a fake nose to capture the writer's plain features. "Why do you come to the Academy Awards when the world is in such turmoil," Kidman said. "Because art is important. And because you believe in what you do and you want to honor that, and it is a tradition that needs to be upheld." Cooper, a veteran character actor whose credits include 'American Beauty' and 'Lone Star,' played a man on a mission to preserve rare orchids in the film loosely based on author Susan Orlean's 'The Orchid Thief.' "In light of all the troubles in this world, I wish us all peace," Cooper said as he received his award. 'Lose Yourself,' from the film '8 Mile' starring Eminem, won the best-song Oscar for the rap star and his co-writers, Jeff Bass and Luis Resto. The Oscar for foreign-language film went to the German drama 'Nowhere in Africa,' about a family of Jews who leave Germany before World War II and settle on a farm in Kenya. The Japanese fantasy 'Spirited Away' won the award for animated feature film. The movie, which had a limited U.S. release last fall and grossed a modest $5.5 million, was a surprise winner against a field of nominees that included $100 million Hollywood hits 'Ice Age' and 'Lilo & Stitch.'
