Michael Moore, the anti-gun film maker who recently won an Academy Award for his film Bowling for Columbine, is now the target of an online effort that seeks to have his Oscar® revoked. RevoketheOscar.com includes information on how to contact the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, which awarded the prize, and offers guidance on how to effectively communicate the message that Moore’s award should be rescinded. The general argument that Moore’s movie should never have been nominated, much less given the award, because it doesn’t qualify as a documentary under the Academy’s own rules is supported both on the site, and via links to numerous articles about Moore’s movie.
