Oscars 2018 WINNERS: best documentary feature


Icarus – Bryan Fogel and Dan Cogan

The film, about doping in sport, sees cyclist Bryan Fogel contact Dr Grigory Rodchenkov, the head of the anti-doping laboratory that tests Russian Olympians.

Fogel said: “We hope Icarus is a wake-up, yes about Russia, but we hope more than that, the importance of telling the truth, now more than ever.”

Icarus beat off competition from Faces Places, co-directed by Agnes Varda – the oldest nominee in Oscars history at 89 years old.

Who, incidentally, is attending the ceremony in person tonight, rather than as a cardboard cut-out.

The award was presented by Greta Gerwig and Laura Dern.

The other nominees were:


Faces Places

Last Men in Aleppo

Strong Island
