Glenn Beck is launching a reality show with Vince Vaughn and Peter Billingsley to find great documentary filmmakers.

Vaughn is one of Hollywood's highest profile conservatives, and a recent Ron Paul supporter. Billingsley, a producer and director who often works with Vaughn, is celebrated this time of year for his childhood role in the classic film "A Christmas Story."

The new reality show, called "Pursuit of Truth," will air on Beck's TheBlazeTV. It will feature documentaries submitted to the show as it seeks "the world's next great documentary filmmaker." Twenty competitors will see the ultimate prize of financing and worldwide distribution.]

Also, the top 10 highest grossing documentaries:

1. Fahrenheit 9/11 . . . $119 million
2. March of the Penguins . . . $77 million
3. Justin Bieber: Never Say Never . . . $73 million
4. 2016: Obama's America . . . $33 million
5. Earth . . . $32 million
6. Chimpanzee . . . $~29 million
7. Katy Perry: Part of Me . . . $25 million
8. Sicko . . . $24 million
9. An Inconvenient Truth . . . $24 million
10. Bowling for Columbine . . . $21 million

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/genres/chart/?id=documentary.htm

Also, the Academy has rarely, if ever, given a flying fark about how much a movie grossed in relation to whether or not to nominate.


Bieber and Perry's movies count as documentaries? I would think they would be considered "concert films", "musicals", or "cinematic abortions".

I was flipping through Netflix newly-added last night, and ran across "O.B.A.M. Nude".

Synopsis is: "A cocaine-addled Occidental College student makes a deal with the devil to allow him to transfer to Columbia then Harvard, become President, and destroy the country and the Constitution"

I thought, you know, this could actually be a HILARIOUS satire of the actual beliefs of the nutty right.. So I looked it up. Yeaaaah, it's pretty much some guy's actual beliefs. He even stars.

The media just said they were Manson fans at the time because everyone in the country knew who he was, and only industrial and metal fans had heard of KMFDM and Rammstein.

It reminds me of The Simpsons episode where Kent Brockman can't pronounc Kuala Lumpur so he just crosses it out and writes in "France".

The documentary category can be pretty tough. I thought Paradise Lost 3 was a shoo-in last year, and even they couldn't win, and that series actually saved someone's life.

Or maybe 2016 just wasn't a very good movie. Say what you will about Michael Moore, but Bowling For Columbine was at least entertaining, even if you didn't agree with the politics.

The Academy might be looking for something more than just someone yelling "OBAMA BAD!" for 90 minutes.
