Michael Moore Receives Surprise Nomination
February 6th, 2003
Michael Moore’s latest documentary, Bowling for Columbine received a surprising nomination for best original screenplay from the Writers’ Guild of America. This is the latest in a long string of firsts and records for the Guerilla Filmmaker. In May of 2002 Bowling for Columbine became the first documentary to compete for the Golden Palm at the Cannes film festival. When it was released it set box office records for documentaries across the globe. And now it’s the first documentary to ever get a WGA nomination.
Bowling for Columbine will complete against My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Far From Heaven, Gangs of New York and Antwone Fisher.
