‘Zoo’ Makes New Nonfiction Award Shortlist

posted by on January 7 at 12:21 PM

Since the Oscars are clearly going to shit this year, this little indie protest award might prove almost meaningful.

The shortlist for a new nonfiction filmmaking award contains:

“Billy the Kid,” directed by Jennifer Venditti (opens this Friday at SIFF Cinema)
“Deep Water,” directed by Louise Osmond and Jerry Rothwell
“The Devil Came on Horseback,” directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg
“Ghosts of Cite Soleil,” directed by Asger Leth
“In the Shadow of the Moon,” directed by David Sington
“Into Great Silence,” directed by Philip Groning
“Lake of Fire,” directed by Tony Kaye
“Manda Bala (Send a Bullet),” directed by Jason Kohn
“Manufactured Landscapes,” directed by Jennifer Baichwal
“The Monastery - Mr. Vig and the Nun,” directed by Pernille Rose Grønkjær
“No End in Sight,” directed by Charles Ferguson
“Sicko,” directed by Michael Moore
“Taxi to the Dark Side,” directed by Alex Gibney
“The Unforeseen,” directed by Laura Dunn
“Zoo,” directed by Robinson Devor

Congratulations, Charles!

Charles was going to give a modest acceptance speech, but he's feeling a little horse.

This sounds a little like that award that Trey got on 30 Rock.

Protest award? Problems with the Oscar short list? No End in Sight, Lake of Fire and Sicko. Yeah, those were pretty irrelevant films. I'd like to see a film addressing a serious issue like guys having sex with horses. Congrats on your nomination for some disgruntled a'hole's online list.

Might I add, The Monastery opens at Northwest Film forum in February.
