DGA Documentary nominations!

Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Sacha Gervasi
Garbage Dreams, Mai Iskander
Food, Inc., Robert Kenner
The Cove, Louie Psihoyos
The English Surgeon, Geoffrey Smith
The Beaches of Agnes, Agnes Varda

It's official. The best movie of the year as been nominated by all four major guilds (DGA, PGA, WGA, ACE) and looks set to take the Oscar in March.

Or will it? I can't help but feel like The Cove is being set up for an upset. Perhaps Robert Kander's Food Inc. is getting ready to steal away Psihoyos' trophy. Maybe these two frontrunners will split the vote, allowing something like The Beaches of Agnes to win like Taxi to the Dark Side did two years ago when voters couldn't make up their mind between Sicko and No End in Sight.
