    People's Choice Award
    Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 has won best film at the US People's Choice Awards, voted for by the US public. Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ won best drama, despite both films being snubbed so far at US film awards in the run-up to February's Oscars. Nominees for the People's Choice Awards were picked by a 6,000-strong Entertainment Weekly magazine panel, and winners were subsequently chosen by 21 million online voters.

    I wonder how accurate online voting is.

    I think this is a really interesting combination of winners - really shows the complexity of our society, and also the difference between critics and we, the masses!

    Never saw 9/11 and really have not heard much about it in my sphere of the world. The Passion of Christ is another matter. It was both moving and disturbing.

    I found 'Farenheit 9/11' moving and disturbing, too.
