In USA Today, Oscars producer Gil Cates insists that any winner can say whatever he or she wants upon ascending the podium.
However, according to this report from the Scotsman, there's a new blacklist in town and it's aimed at preventing a Vanessa Redgrave sort of moment. That means no Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, etc. as presenters. Forget about politics for a minute and ponder this question: Who is less trustworthy as a source of information: a Hollywood producer or a U.K. newspaper?
In any case, there may be no stopping the King of the Stupid White Guys, Michael Moore, who's favored to take home the best documentary Oscar. Maybe this time, Charlton Heston will bust his chops.
