Someone get Mr. Sheen a dentist! He'll need one after he grinds his teeth down to the gums during the presentation ceremony.

Please remove thread. False information from TV announcer. He presented the award to the moron, Michael Moore.

I'm glad he didn't talk too long, and didn't get way too political.

The Passion is in a different category from F911.

I knew Michael Mooreon had won when Martin Sheen smiled BEFORE announcing the winner. I wish everyone would boycott Hollywood.

It's a damned Internet poll. It's useless. It was Freepable but Moveon pushed it. It matters naught.

The bottom line: Who made more money - Gibson or Fat Boy?

"The Passion of the Christ"

Best movie of the last 40 years.

God bless Mel Gibson.

Dedicating the award to those fighting in
Iraq.

Unbearable.

I'm not at all surprised that Moore got the award and not Gibson. I personally think the PCA people line up the award presenters with winners in a way that won't lead to something potentially ugly. So they wouldn't, say, have Tom Selleck present an award in a category that Sheryl Crow or Ellen Degeneres would be eligible in. So seeing as Martin Sheen was presenting this particular award...

Boycotting Hollywood will not solve the problem. We need to take the fight to them! We need to support good movies. We need to impose our values on Hollywood.
Imagine how offended they were when "The Passion" was a success? Can you imagine? It makes me feel great just thinking about it.

Some canned bit about how we are all Americans and we all love this country. Then something about dedicating his award to our troops. He actually managed to say all that with a straight face.

F 911 was not up against The Passion. But it was up against Spiderman 2. The people voted with their wallet as Spiderman 2 out grossed F 911. There is no way an honest vote took place that had F 911 beating Spiderman.

I haven't been here in awhile.. hope everyone is doing well.
I cannot believe that Michael Moore won the peoples choice award. I haven't felt this angry since 911.
We all know its fixed. Heck prolly 10 people saw the movie

Watched "24" for the first time tonight. Great show. My favorite part: The show's SecDef is arguing with his lefty son when son says something about the U.S. conquering the world. The SecDef snorts "Don't give me any of the Michael Moore 6th grade logic!"

Spidey 2 was awesome. No way any rational person would vote Moore's pack of lies over that flick. In their oh so twisted logic, they probably said, 'hey, since the conservatives can fix the election, we can fix this award.'

Act One Program, Christian Screenwriters

Act One combines a rigorous curriculum, professional industry mentorships, and a specific vocational spirituality to prepare a new generation of screenwriters for the entertainment industry. Combining mastery of craft with a concern for truth and beauty, these new writers seek to create movies and television that will be balm, invigoration and joy for the human spirit.

It's been well known for several days that Moore won the award and was told about it; the makers of the show even said the winners are notified ahead of time. And considering that THEY know, of course they got Sheen to present it.

If The Passion won, wouldn't that mean we are all wrong about Hollywood? Anyone who thinks The Passion will win anything from these people hasn't been paying attention. Hollywood was the cradle of socialism in this country decades ago, and once people go out there they either know the score and play along, or feel guilty from all the money they're making and see leftism as the balm. That's how the industry is; the awards reflect that even if they're chosen by "the people", the same people who loved the movie voted for it, while the folks who love The Passion don't have time for internet polls.

Stepping off the soap box...

no doubt smoore bribed people to vote for him ...either that or (since it was 'people' voting) a bunch from DU probably stuffed the ballot box the way they did all the online polls during the election. Sort of a last hurrah for them.

See my post #10. It is not completely my error. The award announcer said best movie drama. It is actually going to be rewarded last.

LMAO! What in the blazes is up with Johnny Depp's outfit? Bike gloves + beret + horn rimmed glasses + puke green shirt. Yikes...

(For FReepers who might be down right now about Depp and Moore's back to back wins, just remember, they might have their cute little awards, but we got the electon.)
