Come on guys. Knock them when they deserve it, but not about this. No one has a clue which film or documentary is going to win. It’s a crap shoot. It wasn’t a setup. Get off their backs and get on them when they really do something rotten, which is often. But not this time.
Na, it was set up.
Ok, of all the categories to have them announce for, you choose the one with a pro homosexual message and then follow it with a category including 2 anti war movies + a Michael Moore movie (3/4, 75% chance of it being anti bush winner). Please, if they really didn’t know who was going to win, they still gambeled well. There’s no way you can say this was purely conincidental. It doesn’t matter who won.
The troops didn’t know, and neither did we. But the scheduler and the Academy directors KNEW which documentaries were nominated and which ones won. They KNEW it, and that was precisely why they chose that category to have the troop introduce. It was absolutely intentional.
