No Gold In Anvil's Future

The shortlist for the Best Documentary award at the 82nd Oscars was released last week. Fifteen films made the list, none of which were Anvil: The Story Of Anvil, the little documentary of a Canadian Metal band still chasing their dream of Rock stardom after 25-plus years. A documentary which was well received by audiences and critics throughout the world. Sadly, this film did not make the list which is a pity because it was an excellent documentary that had humor and heart.
