Michael MooreThere are several definitions of the word "snub" in the dictionary and none of them apply to the absence of Michael Moore's 'Capitalism: A Love Story' from the list of 15 Oscar semifinalists for the year's Best Documentary Feature. Given the movie's reviews, even by critics who'd raved about his past films, it seems likely that members of the nominations committee simply believed there were 15 better candidates.

Nonetheless, "snub" appeared in the headlines above so many stories about the announced doc finalists that a conspiracy theorist might have thought Moore wrote them himself. (He didn't, did he?)
