Oscars Select Doco Feature Short List

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced that fifteen films out of eighty-nine submitted will advance in the voting process for the Documentary Feature category of the 82nd Academy Awards®.

Alphabetically, the films that made the shortlist are: “The Beaches of Agnes”, “Burma VJ”, “The Cove”, “Every Little Step”, “Facing Ali”, “Food Inc.”, “Garbage Dreams”, “Living in Emergency”, “The Most Dangerous Man in America”, “Mugabe and the White African”, “Sergio”, “Soundtrack for a Revolution”, “Under Our Skin”, “Valentino The Last Emperor” and “Which Way Home”.

That list is missing some big titles, most significantly Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” and acclaimed fan favourite “Anvil! The Story of Anvil”. Also not showing up are popular docs like “Tyson”, “It Might Get Loud”, “Good Hair”, “The September Issue” and Michael Jackson tribute piece “This Is It”.

The Documentary Branch Screening Committee viewed all the eligible documentaries for the preliminary round of voting. Documentary Branch members will now select the five nominees from among the fifteen titles on the shortlist which will be announced on Tuesday, February 2nd 2010. The most certain bets right now are “The Cove,” “Food Inc.” and “The Beaches of Agnes”

The award itself will be presented Sunday, March 7th 2010, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
