Editor's Note: We're turning over the final nomination predictions in Documentary to our resident doc expert.Take it away,Glenn -- Nathaniel R

By Glenn Dunks

It's always somewhat impossible to gauge just what direction the documentary branch will go in.In the past,they have often been criticized for ignoring big non-fiction hits while the next year they're equally criticized for just nominating the documentaries that people have heard of and ignoring the smaller titles that haven't the benefit of famous subjects or popular themes (WWII,for instance).

2019 wasan unusually spectacular year at the box office for documentarieswith four titles all reaching seven figures at the cash registers of cinemas in the US.It has been great to see documentaries enter the zeitgeist in such a way.Unfortunately that has meant that most awards organizations have defaulted to a standard list of those top four box office champs:Won't You Be My Neighbor,Free Solo,RBGandThree Identical Strangers.Maybe with Netflix'sShirkersor Hulu'sMinding the Gapthrown in for good measure.Will Oscar follow suit?
