But, hey, we can’t forget the Nominees, can we? Of course not.

Here is the list on the official Oscar.Go Page.

I rarely get excited about the Documentary Category, but CNN’s RBG has changed all this. As my go-to news source, I have fallen in love with their amazing documentaries and, among them, RBG, has risen to the top of the heap and deservedly garnered the praise of the Academy Awards community. So, I am seriously rooting for this CNN win.

Who are your favourites? Please share your thoughts and comments prior, during and after the Oscar show in the comments section.
