Academy Awards

When the usual right wing idiots are crowing about Fahrenheit 9/11 being "snubbed" by the academy, remember that Moore didn't submit the film because he hoped it would be shown on television before the election.

The documentary category is a bit different than others, in that they have to be submitted for consideration. The movie was still eligible for Best Picture, but the odds were always next to nil that the Academy was going to nominate a documentary in that category.
