An Oscar winner is pictured in this photo.
But, which one will take home the Academy Award for Best Documentary this Sunday night in Los Angeles?
The nominees gathered at the AMPAS headquarters in Beverly Hills last night for the annual Oscar week salute to documentary filmmakers. In keeping with tradition, the documentarians mingled in the lobby and then assembled around a giant Oscar statue in the lobby. On Saturday, nominees for the foreign language Oscar will gather for a similar session.
Pictured (left to right) are nominees Angus Aynsley, Wasteland; Josh Fox, Gasland; Lucy Walker, Wasteland; Trish Adlesic, Gasland; Audrey Marrs, Inside Job; Sebastian Junger, Restrepo; Charles Ferguson, Inside Job; Tim Hetherington, Restrepo; and Jaimie D'Cruz, Exit Through the Gift Shop.
