Root for HBO, Gasland at the Oscars this Sunday Night!

By Jacob Klein on Feb 25, 2011 to HBO News

The HBO Documentary ‘Gasland’ has received an Oscar nomination for “Best Documentary Feature”!  If you haven’t seen the film yet you can view it on demand or find a screening at the documentary’s official page.

A quick synopsis: “When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.

If you’re already a fan you should check out the Gasland Oscar Parties going on all over the country!  The film’s chances of winning the Oscar for best documentary film are anything but certain with the gritty Restrepo as well as Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop already causing a buzz.  Find out on Sunday night whether or not HBO takes home the golden statue!
