All-Time Oscar Highlight

We are watching the Oscars because everyone is too sick to go to the Glass Harp reunion show in Cleveland tonight. I’m taking notes and will have a report later, but I am telling you right now we just saw an ALL-TIME OSCAR HIGHLIGHT:

Fat, greasy Michael Moore won for Best Documentary Feature and launched into a rant against Bush and the war, calling it all “fictitious,” and after some token polite applause the audience became very hostile and AND BOOED HIM OFF THE STAGE. It was a moment to savor in an otherwise unmemorable show. Classic.

UPDATE
Moore’s boorish bludgeoning of the evening looks even worse in light of Best Actor winner Adrien Brody’s impassioned but nonaccusatory call for a “quick resolution,” and Peter O’Toole’s almost unbelievably gracious speech accepting his Lifetime Achievement Award. He particularly thanked the United States and called us “good.” I almost teared up.

UPDATE
Please see Oscar commentary here.
