I love Michael Moore

I knew he would shake up the Oscars if he won.

As a sidenote for those of you that haven't read him, he blasts Clinton too as needed. That's the real American. His arguements make sense, and a I lOOOVVed his speech. to the lemonites previous post.

thank you. i was very disappointed to hear everyone boo. not because they were expressing their opinion, i just thought it was rather ummm...not fitting the supposed "toned down" mood the oscars were supposed to have. i guess it's different if you happen to not agree with the majority.

No.
Michael Moore came across as a oppurtunist.
More bluntly- a jerk off.

Ppl saw thru it.
He got booed off the stage, he wasnt even eloquent..-sp

Deep-
He started w an Anti Bush comment.
He laid his foundation and showed his cards.
This part garnered the most boos as he prattled on the boos continued until the fat bastard was yanked off stage.
Let him be your spokes model, its sad this is one of your movement's messengers.
Oppose a war sure.
Oppose a war for genuine reason's sake, sure ok.
Oppose it for polictical reasons, go down in infamey

Totally agree. With people dying overseas you think he could have said something more graceful to get his opinion out, since he feels that his opionion is soooooo important.

The Oscars stopped being relevant years ago. So many great films over the years getting passed over for mediocre commercial tripe.

The "beauty" of America: the right and the left boo each other, berating the other as "inappropriate" and "un-American." I'm still waiting for one side to put a fatwa on the other.

Except for the fact that I've lost count on the number of times the far right have put their foot in their mouths.

I'm certain this won't change much of his fan club, though.

there's a time and a place for everything. this was neither the time, nor the place. that goes for u2's little charade' of changin' the lyrics and throwing that little sunday bloody sunday drum beat into the ending. i'm actually glad they didn't win the oscar so they didn't get upt here and say something they would later regret. there are men dying over there, serving our nation and protecting our freedoms. fucking support them or get the god damn the hell out of my country. that goes for citizens of america like moore, and guests like u2.

Moore's speech:

Whoa. On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy for this. I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on the stage with us, and we would like to they're here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction. We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up. Thank you very much.

support them or get the hell out of Your country?...and my country and Michael Moore's country....whatever. I don't support the US going to war with out UN approval. I support my soldiers as human beings just doing their job, but I don't support the task my president has sent them to do.

a professor of mine read it to the class last week.

so what? Moore made an interesting film, his perspective is compromised though due to his incessant partisanship

How totalitarian of you. I didn't realize it was "your country" to dictate who can and cannot live here.

Nice to know that good old fashioned American arrogance is still alive and well.

Your first sentence is great. I thought the same thing. Don't know who that guy is but I don't think he should have said what he said on the Oscars. I agree with some of the things he said but I don't think it was the time or the place.

As for the rest of what you said......

Charade? It's their song to do whatever the fuck they want to.

your country? yikes. my country too and I will say whatever I damn well please. I will support the troops but that doesn't mean I have to agree with why they are over there.

You're glad U2 didn't win just because you didn't want them to say something they would regret? I doubt whatever would have been said would have been something to regret.

Guests like U2? hmmmm...... did you ever see them in concert? I bet you were glad those guests played in your town. I bet you thought those guests put on a kick ass show.

I'm not going to insult you but I think you need to calm down a bit.
