AMPAS releases doc shortlist

Press release here. 15 titles vie for 5 Best Documentary nominations, including what is still (for me at least) the best movie of the year, The Cove. The documentary branch is not as problematic as other specialty branches (cough-ForeignFilmBranch-cough!), but thay have been known to make some quirky decisions. I remain confident that they won't miss the boat on The Cove.
