The 15 documentaries still competing for nominations this year at the Academy Awards are:

“The Armstrong Lie,” The Kennedy/Marshall Company
“Blackfish,” Our Turn Productions
“The Crash Reel,” KP Rides Again
“Cutie and the Boxer,” Ex Lion Tamer and Cine Mosaic
“Dirty Wars,” Civic Bakery
“First Cousin Once Removed,” Experiments in Time, Light & Motion
“God Loves Uganda,” Full Credit Productions
“Life According to Sam,” Fine Films
“Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer,” Roast Beef Productions
“The Square,” Noujaim Films and Maktube Productions

“Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington,” Tripoli Street

The assumed front runner here is Blackfish, however Stories We Tell has won lots of acclaim (including the New York Critics Circle), and most of these documentaries have met widespread positive critical reception. Sometimes, things aren’t always what they seem.
