Oscar Short List for Documentaries

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

The Oscars shortlist for Documentary nominations are out. Haven’t seen nearly enough of these docs. I am impressed that sentimentality did not deliver THIS IS IT, which is an awesome doc, and could just as well get a nod for best picture, since they have 10 openings for some also-rans this year.

But CAPITALISM was also slighted, which I still haven’t seen, though I hear it’s Michael Moore’s best. His is a timely message, that I wish got more attention.

Here’s hoping the astonishing THE COVE gets its due; otherwise FOOD, INC. which explains why America is eating disgusting crap everyday.
