    LOS ANGELES - The Al Gore documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" will receive a rare recognition from the Humanitas Prize, which honors screenwriting that helps "liberate, enrich and unify society."

    "An Inconvenient Truth," which chronicles Gore's quest to draw attention to global warming, will receive the organization's first Special Award in over 10 years, president Frank Desiderio announced Wednesday.

    "It's a very important film," he said in a statement. "We want to shine a light on it."

    The documentary's director, Davis Guggenheim, said he was "thrilled" with the recognition, adding that Humanitas "supports the achievements and sacrifices of filmmakers trying to change the world."
    Since 1974, the Humanitas Prize has presented awards and grants to TV and film writers whose fictional work reflects "the positive values of life." Documentaries are occasionally recognized with Special Awards. The last such honors went to Bill Moyers and Judith Davidson Moyers in 1995 for their documentary "What Can We Do About Violence."

    Who says LA is delusional?

    C'mon, people, I'm an aspiring writer and even I won't dare say that any screenwriting will liberate or unify society!!! That's stupid.

    In regard to Al Gore and his "documentary," who honestly would be willing to buy a used car from Al?

    Here is the question... They pick him up at the airport in gas guzzling SUVs and Lincoln towncars... If he really cared wouldn't he be using a Segway?
