Moore & Tyson Shut Out Of Oscars Documentary Race
Filmmaker MICHAEL MOORE's movie about the financial crisis and an indepth look at boxer MIKE TYSON's life and career are the surprise shut-outs of the Oscars Best Documentary category as the shortlist is dwindled down to 15.
Almost 90 films originally qualified for consideration and now voters have to pick five from the 15-strong shortlist in time for the nominations announcement in February (10).
And Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story and Tyson will not be among them, as expected.
The list includes The Beaches of Agnes, The Cove, Facing Ali, Food, Inc., Mugabe and the White African, Soundtrack for a Revolution, Valentino The Last Emperor and Which Way Home.
The 82nd Academy Awards nominations will be announced on 2 February (10) at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles. The Oscar for Best Documentary will be handed out at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on 7 March (10).
