On Oscar Night 2003, Mr. Michael Moore was awarded an Oscar for his
Documentary film "Bowling for Columbine". The Oscars rewarded the painful
truth and honesty of that film. But Michael Moore has been looking into the
truth behind the American Dream for a long time, uncovering corruption,
supporting the forgotten man, and helping the little people by focusing a
spotlight on their overlooked troubles. He has consistently and honestly
looked at America and told the truth.
So it is no surprise that on Oscar Night, Michael Moore took the stand and
said what he felt,
..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.
Michael Moore was cheered by some, booed by a few, and attacked afterwards
for "hijacking" the awards. We all know the meaning of hijacking... and he
didn't do that! Michael Moore took a stand and voiced his opinion! Send your
heartfelt applause to Michael Moore.
