The Academy Award nominees are out and, to no one's surprise, "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory," the third in the HBO series of documentaries on the West Memphis 3 murder case, is on the list.

Here are all nominees.

It's hard to see how Paradise Lost can lose and not just because of its celebrity (Depp-Jackson-Maines-Vedder) cachet. It's the culumination of 19 years of work that saved the life of an unjustly convicted man.

Academy Award for best picture? An odd lot of choices to this low-brow moviegoer. I vote by my usual standard, entertainment, for "The Descendants." The not-as-bad-as-I-feared award to "The Artist."
