Shame on the Academy

Shame on You Academy!! For booing Michael Moore, and all other nominated documentarians off the stage... Why? Because they dared to speak against the war and Bush? For exercising their 1st amendment rights? Why did you cut him/them off before his/their allowed time...??

Shame on you!!!

What did he say?

On behalf of our producers Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like 
to thank the Academy for this.

I have invited my fellow documentary nominees on the stage with us, and we would 
like to - they're here in solidarity with me because we like nonfiction.

We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times.

We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a 
fictitious president.

We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. 

Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against 
this war, Mr. Bush. 

Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. 

And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up. 

Thank you very much.
