Oscar Nominees: Best Documentary

My predictions: 3/5
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Hell and Back Again, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, Pina, Undefeated

I’ve seen none of these films, but I can note that the controversial “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory,” which was in the news somewhat recently, did make the cut, as did “Pina,” which was left off the list for Best Foreign Film. “Hell and Back Again” came out on DVD yesterday, and “If a Tree Falls” was released on DVD back in August. “Undefeated” hits theatres on February 10th, and “Pina” is still in theatres. I’m not sure if “Paradise Lost 3” ever got a release date, so if anyone knows otherwise, please let me know. I’m going to see if I’m able to catch a few of these films, and post in the comments if you’ve seen any of them already!

My current bet to win: “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory”
