Wow! There are always snubs, but these are pretty brutal!

The Academy Awards have announced their short list for Documentary Feature, and despite there being fifteen films in contention, they've not only excluded the much-talked about 'is it or isn't it real?' Catfish, but also the AMAZING Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work!

This really does suck, not just because we LOVE Joan, but because we truly believe that her documentary was fascinating - and SO well-made!

Lame!

    WUT HAPPENS WHEN UR A COMEDIAN AND PISSED OFF ALL THE ACADEMY AT LEAST ONCE EVERY 2-3 YRS… ALL ABOUT POLITICS LIKE DWTS' FAT BRISTOL PALIN AND NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING THE "BEST". SMFH.



  2. 2

    There are more important documentaries than an angry ugly has been comedian.



  3. 3

    Is any convalescent home missing a RACIST OLD JEW HAG with a POTTY MOUTH?



  4. 4

    What a PATHETIC OLD HAG & Her daughter is even more repulsive!

    i have not seen the documentary, however, I read reviews that said it was very well done. I think there always is snubbing. And Joan doens't need an oscar. She is joan rivers!
    and with comedians…you have to realize that is isn't really about being racist.

    and to whoever commented below….a racist old jew hag? umm…isn't that being just as bad by calling her a jew hag?

    and her potty mouth…..again. GET OVER IT. we have more important things to worry about. like how justin bieber SHOULD NOT have won ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR at the AMA's.

    joan is a piece of comedy gold…..just watch fashion police. amazing!

    Is not really that good. I sawe already five of the top 15 and if you actually watch them and know what youre talking about…youll understand why this is not on the list.



  7. 7

    Something smells fishy here!!



  8. 8

    COMPLETE TRAVESTY…I've seen most of the top contenders on the LONG list and "Piece of Work" was by FAR the BEST!!!! Oscar docu committee is full of old, bitter hags who are jealous Joan is STILL relevant. PATHETIC!



  9. 9

    "Piece of Work' was fantastic!



  10. 10

    Restrepo was amazing, it should win hands down. I believe they are showing it on the discovery channel sometime this week so make sure to look out for it.



  11. 11

    Correction, they are showing Restrepo Monday, Nov 29th at 9pm on National Geographic

    There were a lot of really great contenders this year. There were many really good ones that didn't make the list. What, it's no good if it doesn't win Oscar?
    Do you know how hard it is to get nominated in that category? She can be happy with it on its own merit. Sometimes that's enough. It's a great legacy for her.

    Truly and OVERSIGHT!!!having seen a majority of the docs this season, Joan's was a breath of fresh air. I guess there is room for 1 more? Oy Preety sure Waiting for Superman will win, But joan deserves the nod… ( SIDE NOTE! ACADEMY SHOULD HONOR DORIS DAY!)
