eek Crowe splashes out to drown sorrows

Russell Crowe ran up a $A57,355 bar bill drowning his sorrows at his own party after missing out on an Oscar, a British newspaper reported yesterday.

Crowe, who was tipped to win the best actor award but lost out to Denzel Washington, snubbed the official after-show parties and hosted his own bash in his $A14,339 a night hotel suite, according to The Sun newspaper.

Nicole Kidman, who also missed out after being nominated for the best actress award, turned up alone at around 2am after attending one of the many official parties.

A "source" close to New-Zealand born Crowe said the actor's glum mood lifted when Kidman arrived.

"Russell's mood changed as the night went on," the source told The Sun.


"He was polite immediately after the awards but then he started to become sullen and angry.

"When Nicole turned up, his face lit up."

Crowe flew Australian country music singer Lee Kernaghan to Hollywood to perform at the party for guests including Crowe's A Beautiful Mind co-star Jennifer Connelly and director Ron Howard, who both won Academy Awards.

Crowe also flew his parents over from Australia for the awards and was reportedly embarrassed at losing out to Washington.

Some guests partied until 7am and ordered champagne breakfasts on Crowe's room service at the plush Argyle Hotel in West Hollywood.

Rusty, should have won "best actor". I don't like his behavior, but the awards sould be judged only on acting merit, not personal life as well.

At the risk of offending people I will say it was the politically correct Oscar Awards, not neccessarily judged on merit.

A lot of people would agree with you there Falchoon. I think they were just trying to stem the "Aussie Invasion" (typical of the Yanks) so they exaggerate Rusty's loutish behavior and then stage the politically correct awards.

I said the same thing when I heard. The Yanks pushed the Australians out as they are sick of us getting the awards.

Next year they will change the rules so only Americans can win, just like they do with everything else.

The yanks are trying to do the same for swimming too. They're pushing to abolish the long to middle distance swims (eg.800m free) so Thorpey won't be able to make the US swim team look like a pre school team.

Lord of the Rings is the only thing to NZ's credit here. Rusty was born in NZ, but grew up in OZ and learned the business in OZ, and lives in OZ, so he's pretty much an Aussie all the way. He still recognizes NZ as his birthplace, but that's about it. Kiwi invasion....??not quite there yet I'm afraid!
