| Tue Feb. 2, 2010 1:35 PM EST

Academy award nominations are out, and three films reviewed in Mother Jones last year are up for awards in the Best Documentary category:

  • The Cove, about the hidden dolphin slaughter in a Japanese town. (Read my interview with the filmmakers here.)
  • Food, Inc., about the horrors of factory farms, slaughterhouses, and meat plants.
  • Burma VJ, about citizen journalists who risk their lives to document government brutality in Burma.
