Get yer Oscar nominations.
My first prediction: the Best Documentary award will be (rightly) won by Born Into Brothels. It's truly an amazing movie, and the academy will prove to be complete suckers for cute little Indian street urchins who take amazingly beautiful photographs. The doc category is one of the few non-tech categories that's still generally won by the best film... yes, Super Size Me is great, but it's not "Great". And you still need to be pretty capital-G Great to win this category.
For doc short, I'm leaning towards The Children of Leningradsky, but that's probably just because it's the only nominee I've seen. (Well, no, I saw Sister Rose's Passion, too, and it's good, but not as good.) |
