The Academy recently released their shortlist of 15 feature documentaries which may compete for the Best Documentary Oscar in February, and out of 15 — FIFTEEN — Anvil! The Story of Anvil didn’t make it. I’m not going to pretend I saw every movie this year, but I saw a lot, and out of all the movies I saw — not just documentaries — Anvil is easily in the top three.
Out of the 15 they picked, one was Valentino: The Last Emperor, about the fashion designer, which got a 7.2 from IMDB voters and a 78% on Rottentomatoes — compared to Anvil‘s 8.2 and 98%. Another was… oh Christ, I’m not even going to go through the rest of these. Ninety-eight effing percent! I don’t know anyone who saw Anvil! who didn’t leave the theater raving about how awesome it was. How does that not get on the list?? And these aren’t even the nominations! It didn’t even get nominated to be nominated. Sadly, this isn’t the first or probably even the second or third time I’ve said this, but, THIS IS WHY THE OSCAR STATUE HAS NO BALLS. Please jump in a volcano, you filthy, ox-touching, baby effers. <3 Vince
