Moore's Oscar Ban Concerns

Documentary-maker MICHAEL MOORE fears he'll be banned from attending future ACADEMY AWARDS after launching into a GEORGE W BUSH-bashing rant at last year's (03) ceremony.

The controversial director shocked the Los Angeles audience when he followed-up his Best Documentary win for BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE with an impromptu plea to America to recognise the evil in the US president and oust him from the White House.

However, Moore is so worried he'll be refused entry into the Kodak Theatre if his film FAHRENHEIT 9/11 is up for a prize in February (05), he's vowed to keep his acceptance speech short and controversy-free.

He says, "I don't know if I'll ever be let back in that theatre. (Film critic) ROGER EBERT asked me the other night if I had though about my speech if I was nominated this year and I said, 'This time, I'm just going to thank my wardrobe people and get off the stage.'"
