Michael, Mel and the People

I don’t quite understand the Peoples’ Choice Awards but watched them on TV last night and couldn’t help thinking that there was some politics going on in the films category. Apparently 21 million votes were cast, which is a staggering number but two films with very different politics won the two big awards.

Farenheit 9/11 won Favourite Movie and The Passion of Christ won Favourite Move Drama. Both Michael Moore and Mel Gibson got a mixture of boos and cheers as they accepted their awards. It seems America is as divided over entertainment as it is over its President. On a lighter note, Shrek 2 pretty much cleaned up in the comedy categories.
