Moore, Gibson Films Ineligible for Hollywood Prize (

Moore, Gibson Films Ineligible for Hollywood Prize ( "LOS ANGELES - They may have triggered controversy and packed theaters, but two of the year's hottest films -- 'The Passion of the Christ' and 'Fahrenheit 9/11' -- have been ruled ineligible for one of Hollywood's top prizes.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which on Jan. 16 hands out the Golden Globes, an important precursor to the Oscars, said on Tuesday its rules bar 'Passion' from consideration for the group's best drama category and 'Fahrenheit' from being eligible for any award, including best drama.

The group said 'Fahrenheit,' Michael Moore's searing denunciation of President Bush and the Iraq war, was ineligible because it is a documentary and the Foreign Press Association does not give awards to documentaries. "
