I figured I’d sneak in one last post for the 2017 Oscars. Last year I saw all the nominated documentary shorts, which was a first for me. Normally the documentary categories are when I get up to use the restroom or grab a snack, but last year I actually cared who won. So I figured I’d do the same this year.
I was mostly successful. This year’s nominations were on the depressing side, but well-made, timely, and I think very important, especially considering the current political environment.
One of them I didn’t watch. Because reasons. (But maybe not the reasons you’d think.)
