By now almost everyone has seen the YouTube viral doc, Kony 2012.
In this video (above) the doc's director defends some of the criticism his campaign against Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony has received.
He even addresses how the organization, Invisible Children, spends their donation money…. the biggest issue people to have them.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just seems to be making up rules left and right for the annual Academy Awards.
In the past they changed the rules so that MORE movies could be nominated in the Best Picture category, but now they're changing the rules so LESS documentaries can even be considered in the nomination process.
Starting next year, documentaries seeking the ultimate honor in film will have be reviewed by either the Los Angeles Times or New York Times.
Why the change? Academy COO Ric Robertson says there are just too many unworthy documentaries seeking a nomination, saying:
Brace yourselves, indie filmmakers. Sundance just got REAL.
The Hollywood Reporter's reporting that Oprah Winfrey is readying her jet to whisk her off to the Sundance Film Festival. Rumor has it the Big O is going to be some scouting for material to air on her new network, OWN.
Specifically, she's in the market for some documentaries and "smaller productions" to join her lineup of projects with stars like Julia Roberts.
Imagine the luck. You'd go to Sundance, just hoping someone will like your movie. Then BAM, Oprah buys it and you can now throw a sticker on the DVD cover that says "Oprah Approved."
Who could ask for anything more!

One unlikely star she approached about a TV show was U2 rocker Bono.
Here's the question she posed to Bono at a recent dinner:
“Would you like a TV show?”
Looks like Bono has passed on the opportunity, but who knows? Maybe he'll change his mind, and if not, maybe she can get another rock star.
What rock star would U like to see host a talk show for Oprah?

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!
Check out the complete list of contenders…AFTER THE JUMP!
What do U think?? Was Joan snubbed??
