Exact same speech he gave at the Independent Spirit Awards, but it didn't result in the same reaction.

I missed it, does anybody have a transcript or video cap of the speech? What other antiwar things were said?

Something is right with the world when Michael  Moore wins an Oscar.

Does anyone else see the obvious impossibility of Michael  Moore selling out? He makes it to the top only to risk it all.

Here's what I remember:

“We like nonfiction, and we live in fictitious times”

"fictitious president fighting a war for fictitious reasons"

“shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you ... [as the music cuts him off] your time is up"

Classic.
"Hunger is the purest sin"

Steve Martin: If you want a transcript of the show, type down everything said.

So just for you, Duck:

Thank you very much. On behalf of our producers, Kathleen Glenn and Michael Donovan, from Canada, I'd like to thank the Academy for this. I've invited my fellow documentry nominees on the stage with us. They are here in solidarity with me because we like non-fiction. We like non-fiction and we live in fictitious times. We live in a time when we have fictitious election results, that elects a fictitious president. :cheers, then boos: We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it is the fictition of duct tape, :boos: or the fictitious of orange alerts. We are against this war, Mr. Bush! Shame on you, Mr. Bush! Shame on you! :louder boos: And any time :music starts to play: you've got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, you're time is up. Thank you very much.

He stole that from Kevin Nealon.

Asked backstage why he made the remarks, Moore answered: "I'm an American. And you don't leave your citizenship at the doors when you enter the doors of the Kodak theater. What's great about this country is that you're able to speak your mind. And that's what I do, I do that in my filmmaking and I do that in my daily life and I don't stop being who I am when I come into this ceremony..."

"Tonight I put America in a good light. I showed how vital it is to have free speech in our country, and that all Americans have a right to stand up for what they believe in."

"My finger's on the pulse of where I believe the majority of Americans are at. And it would be irresponsible of me to not say how I felt. And I think anyone voting for me for this award knew they weren't going to get a speech thanking agents, lawyers, lawyers of agents and agents of lawyers."

this is an even better quote:

"Q: How did you feel about the people who booed?
"Everybody that booed were my friends and relatives. I told them to do that."

and then there's this

Q: Are you afraid of being blacklisted by Hollywood after causing this ruckus?
"I'm not funded by Americans. I'm funded by Candians usually. Hollywood voted for me, so it seems to me they'd still like me."
At this point, Michael asked he reporters to do him a favor: "Please do your job and tell the truth. Don't just make this sound like nobody agreed with me. The majority of Americans oppose this law. Don't make this about me being booed."


this night has made me appreciate the word boo.  i really like it

booooooo

hahaha

I like what steve martin said about the teamsters escorting him to the trunk of his limo!
