15 Docs, 5 Nominations, 1 Winner
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the 15 documentary films that are competing for the 2009 Oscar. Only 5 of these films will be nominated.
Sadly, I’ve only seen one of the films, The Cove, which won the audience award at Hot Docs and Sundance. I’ll be able to watch Sergio and maybe Burma VJ but most of the films are difficult to find.
Have you seen any of the films on this year’s shortlist for the Oscar?
