Let's see, they left off The Central Park Five, which is an epic snub (it just won the NYFCC Best Doc prize today). They also left off The Queen of Versailles. At least there are some decent ones in there. Overall, fairly big failure on the part of the Academy in this category this year.

Having just seen The Central Park Five a couple evenings ago, I agree that the film should definitely and easily have secured an Oscar nomination. Personally, I feel it's one of the strongest films of the year overall.

At least there are still several worthy documentaries that are still being considered, such as Ai Weiwei, Bully and Searching for Sugar Man.

Haven't seen Ken Burns go theatrical since "Brooklyn Bridge", should give CP5 a look.
Bully's got the "cause" momentum, though.

Biggest snub has to be 2016. I wonder why that didn't get considered (rhetorical question).

Searching for Sugar Man is the only one I've seen here. It's a great doc, lotta fun to watch.

@Cool - Think a lot of red-staters are pushing 2016 without having seen it. (Too late, guys, he won.)
Remember when one publicist was trying to sell Disney's pleasant-fluff "America's Heart & Soul" to the mainstream by quick-ref selling it as "The red-states' answer to Fahrenheit 9/11", and every red-stater immediately went on a symbolic commando push-campaign to draft it for Best Picture?
