'Twenty Feet From Stardom'

We've had our sights on Morgan Neville's Oscar-nominated feminist music doc "20 Feet From Stardom" since the Weinsteins scooped the film up after its Sundance 2013 premiere. The film now leads the Oscar doc pack, among strong contenders "The Act of Killing," "Cutie and the Boxer," "The Square" and "Dirty Wars." Watch a new featurette for "Stardom" below, which follows the film's breezy road from Sundance to awards season glory, featuring clips and live musical performances.

Among the awards kudos so far, "20 Feet from Stardom" earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination, placed in the top five documentaries at the National Board of Review, won the audience best doc award at the Provincetown International Film Festival, a Special Jury Prize for Documentary Feature at the RiverRun International Film Festival, was nominated for Best Documentary by the San Diego Film Critics Society, won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the San Francisco International Film Festival and won the Golden Space Needle Award for Best Documentary at the Seattle International Film Festival. 

Now say that five times fast. Audaciously brilliant critics' fave and BAFTA doc winner "Act of Killing" has been doing well too--but will it play with mainstream Academy voters? None of the contenders has been as entertainingly in voters' faces as "20 Feet from Stardom."
