Michael Moore added to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors: will there be outrage from the right

The headline on one story I read was:

“Hollywood-hating conservatives are going to have a field day with this…”

What they are referring to is Michael Moore being selected to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors. Moore had won the Academy award for Best Documentary in 2002, “Bowling for Columbine” and assuredly would have won in 2004 for “Fahrenheit 9/11” but he violated the rules by playing the film prior to the 2004 election.

Will the headline accurately describe the outrage from the right toward Moore?

Most likely.

To most Conservatives he’s a lying, America hating, leftist spewing propaganda…and I’d agree.

However, he should NOT be prevented rising to this seat of recognition. Would those same critics be kicking and screaming if Bruce Willis or Jon Voight were denied because of their Conservative ties?


We don’t need modern day blacklists, especially in Hollywood.

The Oscars are a joke, evolving into a long-winded, boring presentation designed for self-gratification and little else. Michael Moore’s agenda will be nothing new to the Academy and we should ignore it.

So keep an eye out for those organizing protests or contacting AMPAS to object to Moore – they will be showing their true colors.
