Flint's Michael Moore to pursue best picture Oscar

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Filmmaker Michael Moore says he won't submit ``Fahrenheit 9/11'' for consideration as best documentary at this year's Academy Awards.

Instead, he's going for the bigger prize of best picture.

Moore's critically acclaimed film slams President Bush's war on terror as ill-advised and corrupt. The movie has cheered Democrats but enraged the president's supporters, who booed Moore when he visited the Republican National Convention last week.

The $6-million film has become a sensation that collected $117.3-million in the United States this summer.

Nominations for the Academy Awards are scheduled to be announced in January.
