Monday, September 06, 2004Michael Moore Does Another Good Thing
Michael Moore has decided, for various reasons, not to submit Fahrenheit 9/11 for Oscar consideration. He explains why on his website; I think in several respects it was a pretty classy move. Not as classy, perhaps, as he'd like us to believe it is -- the guy's a bit given to self-aggrandizement, but that's really just to be expected from someone who has attained as much relative power in the industry as he has -- but still pretty classy. I was particularly pleased by his throwing some support to other docs (although I'd really like to see more of that kind of behavior).
Anyway, it's not like he needs the Oscar for name recognition or anything. |
