But might I suggest you do some research on who he is and what he stands for before you label him as someone who has everything handed to him on a sliver platter.
So true! I haven't read about his personal life but I do like what he's written. I will do more reading about him as a man, I'm currious as to what moves him to be so "in your face". That takes guts as does his speach at the Oscars, IMHO.
I got this off google about him:
Moore, the author of such best-sellers as "Downsize This!" and "Stupid White Men," previously made the documentary "Roger and Me," which examined the General Motors plant closing in Flint, Mich., that resulted in the loss of 30, 000 jobs. "Bowling for Columbine" makes the case that Americans live excessively in fear (the movie features an extensive interview with University of Southern California Professor Barry Glassner, author of "The Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things") and that corporations selling security devices and bullets are among the biggest beneficiaries of this climate of fear.
Decades from now, historians will look back at "Bowling for Columbine" and say it captured the zeitgeist. Why does America lead the world in gun-related deaths, and why are there serial killers here every year? The questions that Moore asks are designed to spark debate. The answers are packaged in a way that will produce laughter, tears and anger. A film like this doesn't come along very often.
I would say that these actors know how to use publicity, and what better way to reach a world-wide audience than making a statement at the Oscars?
I agree totally, but then isn't that really what it's all about?
I'm guilty of not seeing a single Oscar nominated movie yet........so many movies so little time, sigh!
