Bozell Column: The Polluted Oscar Documentary Pool

Posted on 12/08/2012 5:39:31 AM PST by chessplayer

The cabal that chooses the 15 nominees for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature has issued its 2013 selections. Why was the the top-grossing documentary of 2012 -- and the fourth most-successful documentary of all time – not on that expansive list?

Because it was “2016,” the film in which conservative author Dinesh D’Souza warns of a dark future for America if Barack Obama is re-elected. The film’s producer, Gerald Molen, who’s already won an Oscar for “Schindler’s List,” was scandalized. "The action confirms my opinion that the bias against anything from a conservative point of view is dead on arrival in Hollywood.”

This is the first year that the Best Documentary Feature award has new rules – promoted by Michael Moore.

How can you give any organization of “artists” any credence when their top award is given to a 10 year old girl that now couldn’t buy a job?
