‘An Inconvenient Truth’; a documentary; an Oscar Winner.
 
FORMER US vice-president Al Gore’s documentary, concerning global warming, has won itself 2 hot Oscars, at this year’s star-spangled event.

The documentary centres on Al Gore’s increasingly popular slideshow. The slideshow addresses many issues surrounding the controversial topic of climate change, on our planet.

During the course of the formal evening, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ joyously claimed the two honours for its repertoire– one for best documentary and the second for best song. 

“My fellow Americans,” Gore said Sunday. “People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It’s not a political issue, it’s a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started with the possible will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it.”
 
Gore also messed about with rumours of his plans to possibly make another presidential run, though he later put to rest such speculations saying, “I do not have plans to become a candidate for office again.”
 
Gore claimed that he would rather be devoting his time to pressing the government to act on these environmental affairs.
 
“I really hope the decision by the academy to honor the work by director Davis Guggenheim and these producers will convince people who did not go see it before to see the movie and learn about the climate crisis and become a part of the solution.”

The former VP spoke to the ‘Tennessean’ – his home state newspaper, saying, “I think the Oscar nomination was great because for one thing, it helps bring more attention to the message contained in the movie. That is my principal focus, delivering this message to as many people as quickly as possible.”

The win seemed to come on a rather ‘convenient’ night, as in the preceding hours, Al Gore stepped out on to the stage, alongside Hollywood’s Leonardo Dicaprio to inform viewers, and the audience of the efforts the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had undertaken, in order to make this year’s awards more environmentally friendly.
 
“For the first time in the history of the Oscars, this show has officially gone green,” DiCaprio stated.
 
In this green effort, the Oscar ballots had been created from partially recycled paper and organic produce had been served at the Governor’s Ball. The academy joined with the Natural Resources Defense Council to reduce energy usage and increase recycling.
 
Other enviro-schemes put into action included rides for guests and hosts in hybrid vehicles. The meals for the hundreds of crew and cast members were served on reusable plates and eco-friendly dishware.
Any food left over from the post Oscars Governor’s Ball was called to be donated to a local shelter.
