Who will win the Academy Award 4 Documentary Short? by The Glorious S.O.B. Q: Here are the nominees: "The Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement" Robin Fryday & Gail Dolgin "God Is the Bigger Elvis" Rebecca Cammisa & Julie Anderson "Incident in New Baghdad" James Spione "Saving Face" Daniel Junge & Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy "The Tsunami & the Cherry Blossom" Lucy Walker & Kira Carstensen I was unable to find video, not even the trailer, for "God Is the Bigger Elvis." But I learned it's about a film actress who becomes a nun. The other 4 short docs have trailers on YouTube if you type the movie names (except "Saving Face"). Visit www.savingfacefilm.com. Quite a range of innovative, provocative topics: a Wikileaks video of an Iraqi battle, Pakistani women whose faces are scarred from acid attacks, a common domestic dispute there, the tsunami catastrophe in Japan & the miraculous cherry blossoms, & an unsung hero of the civil rights movement. I think the winner could be "The Tsunami & the Cherry Blossom" which has perhaps the worst tragedy of last year fresh in their minds & that sign of hope (the cherry blossoms) can sweeten the deal. Man, I wish I could watch these documentary shorts. I hope FLICS hosts a festival featuring the nominees. So what do you think? Thumbs up if you saw any of the doc shorts. The 84th Oscars take place February 26 on ABC.

A: Without a doubt. "Saving Face" by Daniel Junge and Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy: "Every year hundreds of people — mostly women — are attacked with acid in Pakistan." (40 min.) I've only seen this one, from the entire list. And I can't imagine any of the others being better than a doco with a duration of 40 minutes that's so good but so hard to sit through. Definitely Oscar deserving.

I can't find anything on the internet on it.

A: No she is not. She is married to Fahd Chinoy, a banker. Check this link to her website: http://sharmeenobaidfilms.com/2007/01/toronto-star-has-named-sharmeen-obaid.html
