'Fahrenheit 9/11' fails to land Writers Guild of America nomination

UPI News Service, 01/28/2005 

The Writers Guild of America has announced six nominees for its first feature documentary award, and Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" is not on the list.

The WGA nominees include two politically-themed documentaries. "Control Room" is a look at the Arab TV news service al-Jazeera during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, and "The Hunting of the President" is a screen adaptation of the book by Joe Conason and Gene Lyons that accuses former President Bill Clinton's enemies of waging a 10-year campaign to destroy him politically.

Of the six WGA nominees, only one -- "Super Size Me" -- is also nominated for an Oscar for feature-length documentary.

The other WGA nominees are "Bright Leaves," an examination of tobacco in American life; "Home of the Brave," about the life and 1965 murder of civil rights activist Viola Liuzzo; and "In the Realm of the Unreal," an account of the life of Henry Darger, whose body of work as a writer and artist was not discovered until after his death in 1973.
