to be honest. it's his weakest film (aside from Slacker Uprising wich would automatically be disqualified by the academy because of its' release) so i'm not surprised. he's a talented guy but he failed to deliver another really damn good doc*mentary.

I'll be rooting for "The Bitches of Agnes", all the way!

just becasue the acadamy doesn't nominate you doesn't mean you are snubbed. maybe it mean your movie wasn't good enough. Like when all the christians felt like Passion of the Christ was snubbed.
Or when starwars fans thought revenge of the sith was snubbed....
or when twilight fans thought twilight was snubbed....
moore is talented even if i rarely agree with him..... but the academy prolly does agree with him.... so no. i don't think he's been snubbed

Once again, Anvil has been screwed. Who really needs to see the Valentino doc? Some prissy nancey boy showing us how he dreams up designer dresses?!

Good. This fat piece of garbages doesn't deserve any recognition.

Eh, it wasn't Moore's greatest film, but it was still good. I can't believe they left Tyson out of the awards. That one was excellent.
