O.J.: MADE IN AMERICA WINS AT INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY ASSOCIATION AWARDS


O.J.: Made in America continues its winning streak of the documentary awards in the early part of awards season, taking the top prize from the International Documentary Association. IDA, which also announced winners across several TV categories, had only a few as-yet unannounced film awards; given that O.J. had won none of the previously-announced prizes, it was either a shoo-in for a mention or never even a contender - evidently the former. Check out the nominations here, and the award winners below.
