Please don't let Oscar-talk infect this otherwise neato blog. Especially in April!


Agreed! The Oscars have never been a reliable indicator of quality - almost the opposite in fact - especially in regards to documentary - so why hold them up as so important or significant outside of the awards season? Would be interesting to evaluate their impact on the marketplace, my sense is it wouldn't be that significant over the years.


What's wrong with discussing the Oscars? AJ writes about box office numbers and industry news all the time, so why shouldn't he talk about awards?


i don't have any problem with Oscar talk this early on. but i just hope Marshall Curry let somebody else operate camera this time, b/c while STREET FIGHT was great, the "shaky-cam" was really hard to watch.

An Oscar? why not...
