Food, Inc., Robert Kenner’s hard-hitting exposé of the food
industry, has snagged a Academy Award nomination in the “best
documentary” category. (Full list of nominess here; Food Inc. is up against another food politics-themed film, The Cove.) This is a significant development. I know people in the food world who have taken a blase approach to Food Inc.--there’s “nothing in it I didn’t already know,” they grumble.
