Home Movies Oscars: Doc Short List Includes Blackfish, Lance Armstrong Expose, Darlene Love Story

Here are the 15 documentaries on the Oscar shortlist. Five lucky nominees will be culled from this list. They are each very good films, from “The Square,” by our old pal Jehane Noujaim, to Alex Gibney’s startling take on Lance Armstrong. “The Act of Killing” is a film I heard about a long time ago; that’s the one I’d put my money on right now.
