The documentary race is starting to take shape. After the recent announcements of the submitted Feature and Shorts in the Documentary categories for the Academy Awards, the International Documentary Association has revealed their nominations today. Some very high profile docs show up in feature including Ava DuVernay’s 13TH, Cameraperson and the nearly eight-hour epic O.J.: Made in America. The nominations were almost identical to the Cinema Eye Honors with only 13TH missing (it was ineligible).
