Michael Moore's Sicko has been nominated for this year's Academy Award for Best Documentary. There may not be an Oscar show this year because of the writer's strike which will be a disappointment to those of us hoping to hear another acceptance speech like the one he gave in 2003 when he won an Oscar for Bowling for Columbine.
Three of the other films nominated for Best Documentary are Taxi To the Dark Side, Operation Homecoming, and No End in Sight. These three are about the Iraq war. The 5th nomination is War/Dance which is about children in a refugee camp in Uganda who enter a dance competition.
I love documentaries and am so glad that they are getting the attention they deserve. Thanks Michael!
