Frankly, I'm thrilled but not surprised. An Inconvenient Truth was a teriffic documentary, plus, let's face it, politics plays a role in the selection process. Congrats, Al! Here's a little video compilation of the Vice President's big night.
Here's Melissa Etheridge's incredible peformance of "I Need to Wake Up" from the film that was nominated for Best Song.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Melissa Etheridge for winning Best Song!
(Nicole: Congratulations also for a long deserved award to Martin Scorsese, as well as Forrest Whittaker and Helen Mirren)
