Darn the Oscars!

Posted By on Thu, Jan 16, 2014 at 3:57 PM

Although I still believe that "Crash Reel" deserve the Oscar for Best Documentary of the year, the Academy apparently disagrees - and didn't move them from the short list to the final list of five. (Really? "20 Feet From Stardom"? Sure, a nice story with an obviously catchy soundtrack, but not the deeper themes about family and a running commentary about one of the most important issues in sports right now - concussions.)

Our review of Crash Reel - playing this weekend at Tin Pan - is here.

The Academy's list of nominations - announced this morning - are here.
