snipshot_bx199d2winhm.jpgVice-President and Oscar winner? You can now add the ultimate award in the entertainment industry to Al Gore’s resume. At the 79th Annual Academy Awards Sunday night, Gore’s film — his passion — An Inconvenient Truth was the winner in the Best Documentary category.

Interviewed earlier, Gore was thankful that his Oscar nomination for his global warming documentary was shifting public opinion, but he’s not happy about being right. From the article,

“Gore said he hopes to pull the global warming argument out of a partisan context and frame it as a moral and spiritual issue that involves responsibility to future generations. Skeptical at first at the idea of turning his slideshow into a movie, Gore said now he’s grateful for all the people the movie has reached.”

Gore accepted the award, along with producers Laurie David, Scott Burns, Lawrence Bender and director, Davis Guggenheim. Everyone was quick to acknowledge Gore’s inspirational role in allowing them to create the film. Gore than then took the mic and thanked the entertainment industry for allowing his to make the film. He also then called upon all Americans — and the world — to work together to address the serious issue of climate change. Chris from LighterFootStep filled me in on some of the speech, “”We have everything in the world we need to do it [beat global warming], with the possible exception of the will to act.”

“That’s a renewable resource…let’s renew it.”
