Oscars 2014 — Best Documentary Short

The Documentary Short category can be a difficult one to predict as most people don’t have the opportunity to see the nominees and we don’t get many other award shows as predictors. Each of the nominees focus on transformation this year. Both CaveDigger and Prison Terminal are strong contenders, but that isn’t to discount the powerful, emotional turns in Lady in Number 6 or Facing Fear. Karama seems to be a good companion piece to feature length documentary nomination The Square that focuses on the Egyptian revolution.
