Oscar Nominees: Best Documentary

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Faces Places” and “Last Men in Aleppo” correctly
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, Faces Places, Icarus, Last Men in Aleppo, Strong Island

I’ve seen a grand total of zero of these nominees. I knew that I would have lots of catching up to do since I had only seen “One of Us” out of the total fifteen finalists, and I’ll get started on my nonfiction viewing once I’m back from Sundance. “Icarus,” “Last Men in Aleppo,” and “Strong Island” are available for download on Netflix, and “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail” is on DVD. “Faces Places” will be the toughest to find since it was released theatrically a few months ago and isn’t coming to DVD until the Tuesday after the Oscars.

My current bet to win: I’ll stick with my original prediction of Faces Places until I see these films.
