I was eating dinner and watching the Oscars. Anyone else see this? Anyways...
He along with someone else won the Oscar for Bowling for Columbine in the Documentary Category.
He was given a standing ovation for doing a documentary on Columbine High School.
Anyways, during his thank you speech time; he bashes on the President and the war. Not only does he bash on the president, but he bashes on a system that has been in place for over 200 years that the Framers of the Constitution essentially put in place.
In my opinion, it wasn't the time nor the place to criticize the president, election process, and the war. He was booed, at which I agree with those that booed. It just isn't the time nor the place.
If you want to criticize, fine by me; you are entitled to your opinion; however, as I have repeatedly said, I believe that it was not the right time nor place.
I don't agree with him essentially saying bashing on the election process that has been in place for over 200 years.
This is probably paraphrased but he said (at least something along the lines of):
fictitious was definitely used in this context. that part is a direct word quote.We live in fictitious times with fictitious elections with a fictitious president that brought us to war for fictitious reasons.
Also, he was on stage with all the nominees for this award; which I don't think they appreciated for being represented this way.
