Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Documentary Short

The nominees: Audible, Lead Me Home, The Queen of Basketball, Three Songs for Benazir, When We Were Bullies

Previous winners: Colette, Period. End of Sentence., Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405, The White Helmets, A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1, The Lady in Number 6 

For your information: This is the first nomination for all filmmakers except for Ben Proudfoot, who was nominated last year for “A Concerto is a Conversation” and returns this year with “The Queen of Basketball.” I had the pleasure to interview all the filmmakers – click on the titles above to watch! “Audible,” “Lead Me Home,” and “Three Songs for Benazir” are all streaming on Netflix, “The Queen of Basketball” is on YouTube, and “When We Were Bullies” premieres on HBO Max on March 30th.

Who should win: These are all good films. I think I might choose “Lead Me Home,” but I would be happy with any of them.
Who will win: I honestly have no idea, but I think I’ll go with The Queen of Basketball.
