At Least We Won't Have to Listen to Him...

No Golden Globe for Moore!!! WooHoo

'Fahrenheit 9/11,' 'The Passion' out of luck at the Golden Globes

Last Updated Wed, 10 Nov 2004 18:50:53 EST LOS ANGELES - There will be one sure bet when awards seasons rolls around: neither of the year's most controversial films will walk away with the top prize at the Golden Globes.

That's because both Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ are ineligible for the best-drama award.

Moore cannot enter his film which has been criticized by some for taking U.S. President George W. Bush to task for his handling of the Sept. 11 attacks since the Golden Globes do not have a category for documentaries

Unfortunately they will both make quite the stink at the Oscar's. No doubt if Moore doesn't win, he will find a way to blame it on President Bush.

Golden Globes are good, but not the Top movie awards. What we want is to see him not eligable for the Oscars.

It also sounds like you didn't like the Passion of Christ. Just curious as to why?

I saw it and found it quite moving, but I think that could be because of all the religious training I had growing up. It was nice to see it all put together.

I haven't seen the Passion. That was tied so closely in the article I couldn't exclude it without doing a terrible chop job.

I thought it would be hard to watch because of the sub-titles (it's in Latin) but there wasn't a lot of speaking.

Actions speak louder than words is very dead on for this movie.
