RaMell Ross’s ‘Hale County This Morning, This Evening’ is awarded Outstanding Nonfiction Feature.
The documentary community ascended upon the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens last night for the 12th annual Cinema Eye Honors, a relaxed awards ceremony celebrating the multi-faceted production aspects of nonfiction filmmaking. In such a strong year for rich documentary work, the awards were spread out amongst a wide range of 2018’s best offerings.
Hosted once again by Academy Award nominee Steve James (Hoop Dreams), the evening began on a light note, one that would maintain its presence throughout the evening.
Jokingly insisting that last year Academy members voted for Bryan Fogel’s Icarus when they actually meant to vote for James’s similarly sounding Abacus, James was nonetheless able to give an acceptance speech last night, winning the inaugural Outstanding Broadcast Series prize for his 10-part epic, America to Me, which can currently be viewed on STARZ.
