Los Angeles – Just hours after receiving an Oscar nomination on Thursday, SA-filmed musical documentary Searching for Sugar Man won Best Documentary Feature at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

The film, which is a UK/Sweden co-production, tells the story of Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez who, as portrayed in the film, became a source of hope and inspiration in apartheid South Africa before mysteriously disappearing.

Searching for Sugar Man follows South African music fans who set out to discover what exactly happened to their idol Rodriguez – who will be performing in South Africa in February.

Searching For Sugar Man included in Oscar Documentary Top 15 List | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | Indiewire

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that 15 films in the ever-controversial Documentary Feature category will advance in the voting process for the 85th Academy Awards. A whopping 126 pictures had originally qualified in the category.

This list often stirs up considerable controversy, and there are definitely a few major omissions in “The Central Park Five,” “West of Memphis,” “Samsara,” “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present,” “Only The Young” and “The Queen of Versailles.” But overall one suspects this will be one of the most agreeable Oscar shortlists in some time.
