The Producers Guild of America has announced their nominees for Best Documentary of 2011. When it comes to feature film, the PGA and the Oscars almost always coincide, but the Academy overlooked some critically acclaimed film when it came to making their 15-film shortlist. Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest and Senna didn’t make the Academy’s shortlist, but the PGA has shown a little more sense and nominated these films for Best Documenatry. They’ve also shown love to Bill Cunningham New York, Project Nim, and The Union. Right now I’m rooting for Project Nim, but keep in mind that the only other film I’ve seen on this list is Senna (which is also awards-worthy).
