Oscar Nods For Animal Docs

Two animal-rights films receive nominations for “Best Documentary Feature.”

On Tuesday, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that The Cove and Food, Inc., are contenders for "Best Documentary Feature" at the 2010 Academy Awards. Both critically acclaimed films explore and expose animal-rights and welfare issues. Food Inc., which was released last June, examines the industrial food system, factory farming, food-borne illness, and the environmental impact of eating meat. The Cove, also released last summer, reveals the routine slaughter of dolphins in Japan and follows the activists who are fighting to end the practice. The films are competing against three other documentaries for the coveted Oscar.
