The Academy Awards for Best Documentary Long & Short have become the most prestigious and coveted trophies on the award circuit tour. So, it seemed only fitting that Stiletto Sports pick the best of the best to nominate for our own docu-drama awards.
Tele-Prompted Speech: Immediately after I hear the word “documentary” my brain adds the words “history lesson movie.” That doesn’t mean I don’t like them because I do think they are fab. The stories are usually remarkable true-life tales worthy of a Lifetime movie award! Hoop Dreams was a fantastic sports docu-drama. And everyone tells me that really long Baseball documentary mini-series was really
long great. And you learn a lot! That doesn’t mean I don’t kinda cringe a little when I hear the word “documentary.”
The last year was filled with sports moments that just beg movie producers to make documentary features about them*. Here are your nominees
*as far as I know, these are not real documentaries. Just things I think should be documentaries!
