CNN Documentary Blackfish Makes Oscar Shortlist

The expositional film made waves when it was released earlier this year, and is now in the running for an Oscar award in 2014.

CNN’s Blackfish garnered a spot on the 2014 Oscar shortlist, making it a potential recipient for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences award. The film’s moving depiction of the psychological strain that SeaWorld’s captive orca whales are subject to has led to an outcry of condemnation by the public and has allegedly played a role in sinking the theme park’s stock value. If mainstream movie critics are indicators of a film’s Oscar success, Blackfish has strong winning potential come March 2—media outlets ranging from The Los Angeles Times to Rolling Stone to New York Magazine have all given the documentary star-studded reviews.
