Category Commentary: Oscar-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”) could make history at this year’s Academy Awards.

With two films in the awards conversation as a producer — the narrative drama “The Whale” and the doc feature “The Territory” — if nominated for both best picture and documentary feature, he would be the first person nominated for both categories in the same category. year

“The Whale” is among 10 films nominated by PGA Awards nominees, and things look good for the film’s prospects. In terms of “The Territory,” it did very well with its predecessors, winning Cinema I Honors and being nominated by the PGA and Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards.

National Geographic Films dominates the 2023 documentary motion picture nominees for the upcoming 34th Producers Guild Awards. The studio landed three of the seven spots, including Sara Dosa’s “Fire of Love,” Matthew Heineman’s “Retrograde” and Alex Pritz’s “The Territory.”

Among the movies that seem to have strong support in the genre are HBO’s “All That Breathes,” the likely frontrunner at the moment, Sony Pictures Classic’s “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, a Journey, a Song,” which has passion in the genre, both internationally and Sun. In the Francisco Bay area.

Neon’s “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed” leads the critics’ awards, but as we’ve seen in the past, they tend to snub presumed frontrunners like “Zane,” “Apollo 11” and even this year’s “Good Night,” which failed to make the Oppy’s shortlist. .

It is worth noting that “Munez Daydream” is the only doc to be shortlisted outside of the doc category, and it could be included in the Best Sound and Editing categories at the BAFTAs and the Oscars.
