Oscar Shortlist: Best Documentary Feature 


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the 15 films that will vie for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar. Out of a record 147 films qualifying in this category, we're now down to 15.

Then, the Academy's Documentary Branch will now select the five nominees that will be announced on Thursday, January 16 when the Oscar noms are revealed.

I am hoping that "The Act of Killing" will make the final cut! This is what documentary cinema is all about -- haunting, provocative, and confrontational!

And the 15 movies buying for the final five spot in the Documentary Feature category are:

"The Act of Killing," Final Cut for Real
"The Armstrong Lie," The Kennedy/Marshall Company
"Blackfish," Our Turn Productions
"The Crash Reel," KP Rides Again
"Cutie and the Boxer," Ex Lion Tamer and Cine Mosaic
"Dirty Wars," Civic Bakery
"First Cousin Once Removed," Experiments in Time, Light & Motion
"God Loves Uganda," Full Credit Productions
"Life According to Sam," Fine Films
"Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer," Roast Beef Productions
"The Square," Noujaim Films and Maktube Productions
"Stories We Tell," National Film Board of Canada
"Tim’s Vermeer," High Delft Pictures
"20 Feet from Stardom," Gil Friesen Productions and Tremolo Productions
"Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington," Tripoli Street
