“Capitalism,” “Anvil,” and “September” Among Major Doc Shortlist Snubs

"Capitalism," "Anvil," and "September" Among Major Doc Shortlist Snubs

The Academy has announced their always surprising shortlist for documentary feature.

It’s wonderful news to see such a lovely range of inclusions: “The Beaches of Agnes,” “Burma VJ,” “The Cove,” “Every Little Step,” “Food, Inc.,” “Mugabe and the White African,” “Soundtrack for a Revolution,” “Valentino The Last Emperor”…

But no “Anvil! The Story of Anvil”!!? I knew it wasn’t a given, but I’ll admit I’m pretty bummed out. I keep picturing Robb and Lipps’ disappointed faces when they find out the news.

Some major snubs: “We Live In Public,” “The September Issue,” “Tyson,” “It Might Get Loud,” and in a huge blow to Michael Moore, “Capitalism: A Love Story”.. Also shut out: “Outrage,” “Racing Dreams,” “Of Time and the City,” “Unmistaken Child,” and “Crude.” Read the whole list at a indieWIRE.com.
