Despite the “best efforts” of the church of scientology, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today their “short list” of films up for selection in the Documentary category for this year.
Dave’s footbullets seem to have had the appropriate effect. Going Clear is one of the 15 included in the short list.
Looking forward to January 14th to see if Going Clear is one of the final nominees.
Regardless — this is the first time in history that any scientology related film has been on anyone’s list for anything — let alone an Academy Award (after already having won numerous Emmy’s)…
This film changed the landscape for scientology. And if it never wins another award (unlikely if you ask me), it has been TRULY Epic, Monumental and a Watershed (using those hackneyed scientology adjectives correctly for once).
