After the Ida Documentary Award nominees were dished out just over a week ago, now comes the turn of the other big doc ceremony, the Cinema Eye Honors. Recipient of the Ida’s Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award, Zachary Heinzerling’s Cutie And The Boxer narrowly steals Josh Oppenheimer’s thunder with six nominations to The Act Of Killing’s five.
With the Gotham Awards, the Ida and Ceh all settling on The Act Of Killing in their respective best feature categories, Oppenheimer’s Oscar buzz shows no sign of slowing down. However, with Sarah Polley’s Stories We Tell and now seemingly Heinzerling’s Cutie And The Boxer nipping at his heels (Miley Cyrus tweeted about Cab, yo), this race is far from over.
The ceremony will be held in January – check out the full list of nominations below:

In The House (15)
A French teacher is instantly drawn in by a student's essay on infiltrating his friend's family, and so are we. Before we know it, we're swept off on a self-reflexive journey into storytelling, voyeurism and ethical boundaries. Both the boy's story and the movie struggle to find an ending, but it's another distinctly "Ozonian" comedy-thriller.
Boyle chucks everything he can (maybe too much) at this twisty, visceral art-heist thriller, which hinges on McAvoy's hypnosis to reveal the whereabouts of a stolen Goya painting. The result is more of a Jackson Pollock.
