There are two movies in "Jackie." One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.
"Life Itself," Steve James' documentary about the life and legacy of iconic film critic Roger Ebert, has won the Golden Tomato award for the year's best reviewed documentary. This is the latest honor for the acclaimed film, which made the Oscar Shortlist, thus qualifying it to be nominated for an Academy Award. Its global television debut on CNN premiered at #1 in total cable news viewers on January 4th. Below is a list of the wins and nominations for "Life Itself" during this year's awards season.
