The ensemble film Crash pulled off the big upset Sunday night by winning the Best Picture Oscar over critical favorite Brokeback Mountain.

The film also earned an Academy Award for screenwriters Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco. Crash's Haggis was also nominated for Best Director but lost out to Brokeback Mountain's Ang Lee.
