My thoughts exactly. Maybe neither film was Oscar-worthy, but F911 was the most fun I've had at a movie in decades. I laughed. I cried. It was the feel good movie of 2004. Britney Spears stole the show.

yes, it was better than "Cats," wasn't it.

(i've also never heard more hisses than when Brit appeared on the screen ... come to think of it, even more hisses than when i saw "Cats" ...)

We're assured of another nice, boring Academy Awards show. It's usually a good night to catch up on sleep.

Speaking of Michael Moore and Mel Gibson, get a load of this:

http://www.musicforamerica.org/node/70793

Did you realize that both Mel Gibson and Michael Moore expressed admiration for each other's films? It's true. With all this "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "The Passion of the Christ" war going on, they actually admitted liking each other's films quite a bit and it logically makes sense.

Did you know that Mel Gibson's "Icon Productions" was originally going to finance "Fahrenheit 9/11"? That amuses me most of all.

Interesting.........they like each other's films. The press wanted to pit them against each other.

Well, hopefully it won't be too boring. Chris Rock is hosting. I just can't take Billy Crystal or Whoopie Goldberg anymore.

Wow... I would've otherwise assumed they were rivals in a way.

I'm quite certain of two things;

a) Jamie Foxx will win for Best Actor

and

b) Martin Scorsese will be passed over, yet again.

Ant.

P.S - I liked both 'The Passion' and Fahrenheit 9/11.

I never even realized that 911 and Passion were omitted, until now I guess I was too distracted. I never saw Passion Of The Christ, I just don't think I could take it.

Jamie Foxx should win, or Don Cheadle.. I haven't seen Hotel Rwanda because it's never played near me, but he's an amazing actor

Don Cheadle is the man. But it is Jamie's year - his work was stunning in both Ray and Collateral.

Embarassingly bad in Ocean's Eleven though.

I don't even remember him in that, but I thought Oceans Twelve was bad overall anyway

I wonder if Michael Moore posted anything on his web site, I'm going to go check..

no, nothing..damn, it would have been entertaining
