Cinema Eye Honors Award Nominees

After the IDA Documentary Award nominees were dished out just over a week ago, now comes the turn of the other big doc ceremony, the Cinema Eye Honors. Recipient of the IDA’s Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award, Zachary Heinzerling’s CUTIE AND THE BOXER narrowly steals Josh Oppenheimer’s thunder with six nominations to THE ACT OF KILLING’s five.

With the Gotham Awards, the IDA and CEH all settling on THE ACT OF KILLING in their respective best feature categories, Oppenheimer’s Oscar buzz shows no sign of slowing down. However, with Sarah Polley’s STORIES WE TELL and now seemingly Heinzerling’s CUTIE AND THE BOXER nipping at his heels (Miley Cyrus tweeted about CAB, yo), this race is far from over.
