Anvil! Wins Something, Thankfully


Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Sacha Gervasi's little doc that could (and then suddenly, unexpectedly couldn't — the Academy left it off their short list), took top honors Friday night at the International Documentary Association Awards in Los Angeles. Anvil's Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner were on hand to accept with Gervasi (see a post-awards interview with Anne Thompson here). It's not an Oscar, but those things are bad for underdog cred anyway. [IndieWire, Thompson on Hollywood via In Contention]
