The fact that Gore’s “global warming” propaganda film is favored to win an Oscar says more about the academy than it does about Gore’s film making ability.
NEW YORK (AP) — Forget about sharing the stage with fellow Democrats on cable TV. Al Gore goes prime time, red carpet Sunday night at the Academy Awards before tens of millions, reviving talk of a possible presidential run.
“An Inconvenient Truth,” the documentary about the former vice president’s crusade against global warming, is the odds-on favorite to win an Oscar. Gore plans to attend the ceremony as well as the glitzy before and after parties.
After Jimmy Carter receiving a Nobel Peace Prize because that academy wanted to give a slap to George Bush; Michale Moore getting an Oscar for his propaganda film “Fahrenheit 911” and the Dixie Chicks getting a Grammy for criticizing the President, it is no surprise that Gore would be receiving an Oscar. But let’s not pretend that it has anything to do with the movie. It is a political statement, more indicative of BDS than any genuine merit. As such, it is essentially meaningless.
