Michael Moore wants Castro to be his special guest at OscarsFebruary 22nd, 2008 - 5:34 pm ICT by admin
Washington, February 22 (ANI): Sicko director Michael Moore has expressed his desire to have former Cuban President Fidel Castro as his special guest at the Oscars on Sunday.
Moore feels if Castro is invited to attend the ceremony, it will be a great honour to Cuba, where he partly shot his Oscar-nominated documentary on the health-care industry.
Since Castro has resigned as Cuban President, Moore believes he can now attend the event in Los Angeles.
“I got some great news today because I was trying to figure out how I was going to get Castro into the Oscars and for me he resigns today so he can come to L.A. and go as my guest and perhaps give the acceptance speech, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“As long as he keeps it under five hours. I’m telling you, that’s got to be a ratings grabber. Can you imagine him? Showing up? If I could talk to (Oscar Producer) Gil Cates and maybe get Castro in a dance number at the beginning of the show? Great,” he added. (ANI)
