I thought she was going to forget to thank Alex who was standing right there.

of course it was going to win. the footage of alex doing the boulder problem is THE most intense footage ever, anywhere.
Radder than surfing a 100 foot wave at nazarre. kudos to the guys that rigged that.

congrats jimmy and chai, but you could have rehearsed your congrats speech a little better

I spent the day walking around south SF bay marshlands with my daughter, now chillaxin' and thought it would be funny to share pics of Alex in a tux, but I guess it's kind of anti-climactic now if they won an Oscar.

Congrats! Climbing's first Oscar, El Cap's first free solo!

But El Cap should get best set design!!!

Edit: I hear they won a trip to Yosemite! : )

Congratulations. Telling shout-out to Sanni Mccandles. My guess is she was the Oscar tipping point. Mccandles showed us, not told us, the emotional center of Free Solo.

Very well deserved. I thought that they'd hit perfectly the "sweet spot" between showing just a bunch of climbing, and what kind of person it takes to accomplish such a feat. (which is what I think actually captured the interest of the general public).

I saw all of the nominees, as well as a number that I thought were passed over wrongly. Some were close, but I think justice was done.

Unlike others who've posted, I do not think this film is captured well by streaming or DVD on a small screen. I imagine it will take another round of theaters, and I'd strongly recommend seeing it there, particularly in IMAX if possible.
