DGA Documentary Feature Nominees
This year's DGA nominees for Documentary Feature, feature three Oscar nominees, and two films that were beloved by many and snubbed in the final count. With the new rules that say everyone within the Academy can vote for Documentary Feature, this race will rely more heavily on its precursor awards, as many voters will probably skip the screeners and fall in line with DGA/PGA, etc. I hope this isn't true, but as all of us who follow the Oscars know, it's probably the case. That helps Searching for Sugar Man, How to Survive a Plague, and The Invisible War, who all would gain incredible exposure to the broader Academy with a DGA win on Feb. 2nd.
