Academy Awards Documentary shortlist

InTheShadowoftheMoon.jpgI can't believe that In the Shadow of the Moon (Filmstalker review) didn't make it to the shortlist of Documentaries for the Oscars this year. I mean what are the selection committee on to not think that that stunning film is worthy of an Oscar?

Perhaps it doesn't qualify under their convoluted rules as a documentary, lord knows that many foreign films don't match their foreign film catergory.

Anyway, that aside, here are the shortlist of documentaries from which five nominees will be selected as provided by Hollywood Elsewhere.

Autism: The Musical - Tricia Regan
Body of War - Phil Donahue, Ellen Spiro
For The Bible Tells Me So - Daniel G. Karslake
Lake of Fire - Tony Kaye
Nanking - Bill Guttentag, Dan Sturman
No End in Sight - Charles Ferguson
Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience - Richard Robbins
Please Vote For Me - Wejun Chen
The Price of Sugar - Bill Haney
A Promise to the Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman - Peter Raymont
The Rape of Europa - Richard Berge, Bonni Cohen
Sicko - Michael Moore
Taxi to the Dark Side - Alex Gibney
War/Dance - Sean Fine, Andrea Nix Fine
White Light/Black Rain - Steven Okazaki

The five nominees will be announced on the 22nd of January, and it still seems staggering that In the Shadow of the Moon didn't make it.
