Moore at the Oscars
Well I missed most of the Oscars last night. I tuned in for about 18 seconds total, the first time to see a bunch of old wrinkly actors being shown in front of the camera, and the second to catch the presentation of the best picture, and only saw enough of it to see that I only recognized one of the flims in the list (Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) and hadn’t even heard of more than one of the others. TTT didn’t win, so I turned it off, or back to the hockey game. I’m a little sad that I missed Michael Moore’s speech blasting all that the Americans hold dear, and probably bringing up a few things they’d rather not think about in the middle of an orgy of famous rich people congratulating each other. Some, but not all were impressed with the insertion of a political speech in the middle of the awards show. I’m guessing that he was the only one that said anything, because that’s the only person I’ve heard about who did anything vaugly political this time. I must get the picture from the front page of the Vancouver Sun.
