Anvil Cruelly Snubbed By Oscars
Anvil can put away those Oscar acceptance speeches, because they won’t be going to the awards next year.
There was a genuine expectation that the acclaimed documentary Anvil! The Story Of Anvil would make the shortlist for the Best Documentary award at arguably the second most prestigious awards ceremony in entertainment (behind the Classic Rock Awards, naturally). But when the 15 contenders were announced today – no Anvil.
Shame really. We’d have looked forward to seeing Lips or Robb Reiner sharing cocktails and discussing Metal On Metal with Jack Nicholson!
