Billy Mitchell wins again.
I didn't think it could happen but it did and I dont know why. I jsut know that it makes me sad and pissed off.
The academy revealed today which documentaries would be eligible this year for the Oscar. Missing from this list was the critical darling, and audience favorite, The King of Kong. This is one of my favorites of the year and is one of the best films (counting both documentaries and films) that I have seen in a long time.
This all reminds me of the time where everyone was raving about Grizzly Man yet the Academy still didnt even put it on their list of eligible documentaries to be nominated, Everyone got pissed but there was nothing anyone can do except wish something like that would never happen again and it has.
Other favorites (that I have yet to see) which were also not on the list were In the Shadow of the Moon, Crazy Love, and My Kid Could Paint That.
