Amy Winehouse Documentary Makes Oscars Short List

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected fifteen feature documentaries that will go on to compete for the Academy Award. In a highly competitive year for documentary films — 124 films were submitted — the preliminary round of voting by members of the Academy's documentary branch singled out films that range from Asif Kapadia's Amy, a look at the late singer Amy Winehouse, to Evgeny Afineevsky's Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom, which takes viewers behind the lines of the Ukranian uprising in 2013-2014.
