So, you are sitting there at the Oscars and your name gets called out. You just won the Oscar for Best Actor! What do you do? You get up on stage, embrace the presenter of the award, and give her a huge kiss! Why not? It's television, it's live, and you already won the award. Besides, maybe she liked it :thumbsup:

Congratulations, Adrien Brody for winning Best Actor for your performance in "The Pianist". Well done!

And the Oscar for biggest idiot goes to....

For an event that almost always draws out the political views of the actors on stage, this year's Academy Awards ceremony was going pretty quiet till director Michael Moore got on stage. Accepting an Oscar for his anti-gun documentary "Bowling for Columbine" he took the opportunity to belittle the President. That didn't go without a response. The normally quiet audience erupted into boos. Comments included, "We live in fictitious times, and we have fictitious election results that elect a fictitious president that sends us to war for fictitious reasons." A few supporters applauded but the majority of the theatre joined in on the boos. As the music started for him to get off stage, he added, "We are against this war, Mr. Bush! Shame on you, Mr. Bush! Shame on you!" The boos got even louder and he ended with, "And anytime you've got the pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, it's a bad sign!"

Thankfully Steve Martin came back on stage with a zinger that took some of the tension out of the air, "The Teamsters are now helping Michael Moore into the trunk of his limo."

Too bad it's not true.... :cry:
I actually did not watch the show this year because I knew at least one of those Left wing, out of touch horse's sphincter's would run their mouth and p#ss me off!! :roll: :roll:

As for that sorry pc of crap -- Michael Moore ---- I wish he would go find a corner somewhere and curl up and DIE in it. He would not know the truth if it jumped up and bit him in his big wide butt!!! :twisted: :twisted: Cold hard facts have never stood in his way of making things fit his demented view of things. To bad he was not a visitor at Colombine on that fateful day. :wink:

I was happy to see Chicago take so many honors. I once ran sound and lights for a local theatre production of that play. However, I was really glad to see that The Pianist did so well. I've heard good things about that movie, but have yet to see it. I'll wait 'till the DVD is available & watch it at home.
I just couldn't believe that Eminem won for "Original Song". He was up against U2 and Paul Simon! :grumble:
Roman Polanski ("The Pianist") has made some truely great films, and has had some truely nasty things happen in his life (don't forget- Sharon Tate, killed by the 'Manson Family' was pregnant with his child at the time of her death).

This doesn't change the fact that he originally fled the US to avoid charges of pedophillia, and reports are that apparantly he has openly continued this behavior in Europe. Sorry to (again) be such a damn downer, but I used to work with abused kids, and predatory pedophillia really pushes my hot button.

I say screw him, with a drill.
