But why would they care? It would seem extremely rare to have a documentary nominated in this category. Roger L. Simon blogger, gasbag knows the real cause however:
Most who are thought of as "Hollywood" are not documentarians to begin with. They are fiction filmmakers, show people. They adopted Moore for a short while to make a point which is now fading even for them. Most people in Hollywood now see, although maybe they won't admit it, that democracy in Iraq is extremely important. For Moore, it's over.I would have never got the connection between democracy in Iraq and Moore's Oscar hopes with out Roger Simon's help.
