Best Documentary Feature: Finalists

The Academy has listed its 15 finalists for the Best Documentary Feature. I feel that Client 9, Inside Job, The Tillman Story, and Waiting for Superman are the top choices. This race could actually be interesting to watch, as there are a lot of high-profile contenders. I will update these predictions sometime this weekend. Also, kinda sad that the Joan Rivers doc didn't make the final cut, as it I thought it was pretty damn good. Oh well.
