No Moore Osc

Oscar nominations are in, and Fahrenheit 9/11 received zero nominations:
Michael Moore, a 2002 documentary winner for "Bowling for Columbine," missed out on nominations this time with his hit "Fahrenheit 9/11." Moore decided against entering "Fahrenheit 9/11" in the documentary category to boost its prospects for best-picture and other categories, but the film failed to earn any nominations.
Funny, I always thought the decision was made because a film has to have at least some factual basis to be considered a documentary.
