The dolphin-slaughter documentary The Cove continued its quest for an Oscar with a key win at the 2009 Critics Choice Awards for “Best Documentary”.

While the Golden Globes, which took place last weekend, paint a rough picture of who might win an Academy Award, it’s the Critics Choice Awards for documentary filmmakers that really get the hopes high. This is because, interestingly enough, the Golden Globes have not awarded a “Best Documentary Film” award since 1973, when Elvis Presley took home the honor for Elvis on Tour.

The Cove beat out other likely Oscar nominees like the brilliant Food, INC., Michael Jackson’s This Is It, and Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story. It was also recently selected for “The David Attenborough Award for Excellence in Nature Filmmaking” for the 25th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The award “celebrates not just nature film making, but environmental causes,” said organizer Roger Durling, “and no better film has done it that The Cove this year.”

Oscar nominations are announced February 2nd.
