Producer Politics

The Producers Guild of America Awards got a bit partisan on Saturday night.

When it was announced that Oprah Winfrey, the recipient of the year’s Stanley Kramer Award, could not attend because she was campaigning for Barack Obama, the packed house at the Beverly Hilton offered a rousing cheer.

Michael Moore also was there, but he said beforehand that he is neutral in the race. “I haven’t made a decision yet,” he told Us magazine.

“I have always loved Hillary Clinton,” he said. “[But] she voted for the war, and I am morally prohibited for voting for someone who voted for the war over and over again.”

“She didn’t just vote once,” he added. “She voted many times for it.”
