Oscar nominations: Passion of the Christ gets three (cinematography, makeup, music); Fahrenheit 9/11 gets none.
That sound you hear is ten thousand right-wing pundits and bloggers kicking their laptops in frustration. Their screeds were already written. They were sure Michael Moore would be the toast of Tinseltown this morning and Mel Gibson would be accused of crimes against humanity prior to the announcement of the nominations in a lengthy speech ghostwritten by Noam Chomsky.
This makes no sense to them. Their heads are going to explode.
