The article presents views of the author on the nominees of the documentary films category in the Oscars. The author claimed that despite the edge of the documentary film "March of the Penguins" compared to its rivals, it is not yet certain that it will be chosen as the ultimate winner. This assumption has been developed by the author because of what happened in the 2005 awards. The award went to "Born Into Brothels," a little-seen film.
