Great expectations: The surprising and not-so-surprising Oscar documentary shortlist picks
The 15 films that made the cut include fan favorites and potential controversy. Among the contenders is The Look of Silence,” POV alum Joshua Oppenheimer’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated The Act of Killing,” which aired on POV in 2014. “The Look of Silence” is also this year’s Gotham Awards best documentary.

Alex Gibney’s “Going Clear,” also in Oscar’s shortlist, is giving Hollywood an opportunity for an entirely new conversation about Scientology.

Tom Roston made the case for “Cartel Land” to get on the Oscar shortlist. Now it has. See why!
