Moore Blasts Bush at Oscars

Outspoken documentary-maker and writer Michael Moore was drowned out by the band when he launched a scathing attack on George Bush during last night's Oscars.

Collecting the best documentary award for his film Bowling for Columbine, Moore blasted: "We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you."

Wagging his finger from the stage as he drew a mix of applause and boos from assembled stars, he added: "We like nonfiction and we live in fictitious times.

Moore's speech was cut short as show producers drowned him out with music from the orchestra.
