OSCAR DOCUMENTARY RACE IS DOWN TO 15 FILMS


Recent years have seen an increase in the general acclaim and familiarity of the films on Oscar's Best Documentary radar, at the level of award winners, nominees, and contenders on the 15-strong shortlists. This year's 15 are perhaps the pinnacle of that trend thus far, with virtually every one of these titles looking like probable nominees. Alas, only five of them will make the cut, and we'll find out which five on the 24th of January. Until then, you'll just have to guess...
