"On behalf of our producers
Kathleen Glynn and Michael Donovan from Canada, I'd like to thank
the Academy for this. I have invited my fellow documentary nominees
on the stage with us, and we would like to - they're here in solidarity
with me because we like nonfiction. We like nonfiction and we
live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious
election results that elects a fictitious president. We live in
a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons.
Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange
alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush,
shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks
against you, your time is up. Thank you very much."
Michael Moore's Oscar Acceptance
"The singular goal [of
Corporate America] is to take enough control over our lives so
that, in the end, we'll be pledging allegiance, not to a flag
or some airy notions of freedom and democracy, but to the dictates
of Citigroup, Exxon, Nike, GE, GM, PG&E, and Philip Morris."
