Will Win: Citizenfour

Could Win: Virunga

Should Win: Citizenfour

 

Citizenfour should win this one. It is a great film (read my review of Citizenfour here). Virunga and Last Days in Vietnam show some competition, but the inside access to Edward Snowden in Citizenfour is too good for the Academy to pass up, in my opinion.
