The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced the 15 films that have made the shortlist for Best Documentary. Two of the most prised docs of the year made the list: Louie Psihoyos‘s The Cove and Robert Kenner‘s Food, Inc., as well as a few lesser known titles like Anders Ostergaard‘s Burma VJ and Matt Tyrnauer‘s Valentino: The Last Emperor. But surprisingly excluded were Michael Moore‘s Capitalism: A Love Story and James Toback‘s Tyson.

The 82nd Academy Awards nominations will be announced on February 2.
