The first time someone asked Ngila Dickson whether she wanted them to vote for "The Last Samurai" or "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" for best achievement in costume design, she was horrified. Because Dickson (whose name is pronounced NIE-la) has been nominated for her contributions to both films, she's competing against three other costume designers and herself.

It suffices to say here that sequence ends in a car accident, with one woman, Christina (Donogh Rees), nearly killed and the other, Lane (Marcia Gay Harden), walking away with only a scratch on her forehead. "Crush" has so much wit and panache it's important not to give too much away.
