Fifteen Films Selected for Best Documentary Oscar

Posted: November 18th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Fifteen Films Selected for Best Documentary OscarSubmit Comment
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected fifteen documentaries out of a total of one hundred and one that will advance to the next round of voting that will become nominees in the Documentary Feature category of the 83rd Academy Awards.

"Waiting for Superman" seems like the favorite to win, considering the impact the film has had on parents and the US government. But "Inside Job" and "The Tillman Story" will also likely move on to the next round.

The committee viewed all eligible documentaries and will now select five nominees out of the fifteen, which are listed below.

* Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer
* Enemies of the People
* Exit through the Gift Shop
* Gasland
* Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould
* Inside Job
* The Lottery
* Precious Life
* Quest for Honor
* Restrepo
* This Way of Life
* The Tillman Story
* Waiting for Superman
* Waste Land
* William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe

Uh, none? Haven't seen any of them, but I would guess they're all good, right?

I'm split down the middle for Exit Through the Gift Shop and The Tillman Story. Also, what about An Unfinished Film?

Exit Through the Gift Shop inspired in me a newfound love for art, and being an artist myself, it's doubly inspiring.

Haven't seen the other ones.

I saw Client 9 about a week ago and I'm trying to see Inside Job next week.

How come they didn't add the doc Casino Jack and the United States of Money? That was a great doc*mentary about lobbiest Jack Abramoff.

(Yea I know. It sucks that I watch so many doc*mentaries but the fact is, I love it)
