The Academy Chooses 15 Possible Best Documentaries

Curious to find out which documentaries may be competing for the little gold statuette at the 2008 Oscars? The Academy has narrowed down the possibilities to 15, from mainstream titles like Michael Moore's Sicko to festival favorites like Autism: The Musical. Clearly war is of particular interest to documentary filmmakers and Academy members alike, as six of the 15 films deal with the subject.

As Variety notes, the list does not include certain audience favorites like King of Kong and In the Shadow of the Moon. This list of 15 will be further whittled down to five and these final candidates will be announced January 22.
