The advocacy website http://www.passionforfairness.com has generated a tremendous response with their petition to ask the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to nominate the film The Passion of The Christ, its director and its actors for Oscars in their respective categories.

In just 10 days, the website has generated 10,000 petition signers. “We have had a tremendous response,” says Patrick Hynes, who spearheads the effort. “Regular folks are frustrated that Hollywood snubbed The Passion when they handed out nominations for a Golden Globe. They just don’t feel Hollywood is being fair. Now, they have a chance to organize and let Hollywood know they are watching them, but not they way Hollywood thinks.”

Hynes promised to present all the signatures to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences before they announce Oscar nominations at the end of January. Since the launch of the site, several news outfits -- such as E! Online -- have written about it. And Hynes has been a guest on numerous radio talk shows. Hynes promises an ad campaign targeting Hollywood opinion leaders, as well.
