It’s coming any minute now, but in the meantime, our pal AJ Schnack over at All These Wonderful Things has taken a stab at films he thinks might make the cut. Food, Inc. is the current frontrunner, according to AJ (then that automatically means Oscar ignores it. Juuuuuust kidding). It is the only film, says AJ, “to have scored nominations in the top category at the Cinema Eye Honors, the Gothams and the IDA Documentary Awards.”
The docs that are our radar so far this year, therefore making them the least likely choices by the Academy, ahem, would include: Anvil! The Story of Anvil, It Might Get Loud, The Cove, We Live in Public, and of course, Capitalism: A Love Story (I dare them to shut that one out). AJ also thinks Tyson, and several other titles that don’t yet have any buzz.
