PEACE MAN Bernal invoked Kahlo's politics
When Gael Garcia Bernal, the ''Y Tu Mamá También'' hottie, came on to introduce ''Burn It Blue,'' the nominated song from ''Frida,'' he was so overcome with emotion that he started to get misty-eyed. He carried that emotion into an antiwar message, stating that if Frida Kahlo were alive today, she'd be on the side of peace.
