Well... it's good news for SOME of us here.

Michael Moore just won the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD for best film! The first documentary EVER to do so. Here's what Mr. Moore had to say:

(BTW this was an E-mail so none of you can "click here", sorry)

Monday, January 10th, 2005

Dear Friends,

Last night, at the People's Choice Awards, "Fahrenheit 9/11" was named the Best Movie of the Year. It was a stunning moment for us. And, somewhere inside the Bush White House, someone there must have been stunned, too.

21 million people voted in the People's Choice Awards. They chose our film over "Shrek 2," "Spiderman 2" and "The Incredibles." If we can beat that many superheroes, surely we can survive the next four years.

I can think of no greater honor for us this year than the award bestowed upon us last night by the American people. On live television, with no threat of my remarks being censored or cut short, I thanked all of you and the rest of our fellow Americans and dedicated the prize to the parents of our servicemen and women in Iraq, the Lila Lipscombs of America who suffer so profoundly by the reckless actions of the Bush administration.

(If you'd like to see what I said -- this time, no riot! -- you can click here. I even dressed up!)

It was an historic moment as no documentary had ever won the People's Choice Award for Best Picture. And I thank each and every one of you who voted and made that happen.

I took Congresswoman Maxine Waters and her husband as my guests last night. My family was there, too, as was some of our crew. We had a great time and I even got to meet Mel Gibson for the first time (he won a secondary prize for best film drama). More on that later!

Thanks again, and now let's get on with the serious work at hand -- winning more awards! Hahahaha. Just kidding. We have an inauguration to attend, don't we?

Yours,

Michael Moore

I soon expect the rant from the right wing nuts on this board.

Even though there are not too many.

Too bad 'Shrek 2' won. 'The Incredibles' is way much better.

It's a double header for Moore, as he also won this year's Flashman award for 'Movie you wouldn't even wipe your arse on'.

It's good news for Michael Moore. I can't honestly say it could be good news for anyone else. It's just "news."

Anyway, This is Spinal Tap is still way better than Fahrenheit 911, which is perhaps in Britain known as Celcius 488...761 Kelvins?

So , the libbie folks , upset that Bush won , voted en masse over the net for Mr. Moores "mockumentary" .

Good for him , and good for them . Michael Moore , like him , or hate him , is GOOD for this country .

The only thing that I have a problem with about his movie is that it is no more a "documentary" than Mary poppins was . Documentary's are based on FACT , which , sadly , was sorely missing from the flick . If it was called a drama , or an "i hate george bush" movie , fine .


Regardless of his utter lack of tact, I agree with him.
