The most wonderful time of the year

Yes, I know, it's really Christmas, but a veryclose second place is Oscar season, which got kicked off today with the announcement of the nominations. Here is a complete list of the nods, but the one that I am most excited about is for Best Documentary. Trouble the Water is a Hurricane Katrina documentary, made by Kimberly Roberts, a Lower Ninth Ward resident who lived through the storm, and filmed the storm and its aftermath on a small, handheld video recorder. It is such a remarkable story. Read about it here and here.
