“Earth Made of Glass” and “Smash His Camera” weren’t included by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ on its short list 15 films eligible for the Oscar.

Waiting for Superman” won the National Board of Review’s award for top documentary on Thursday and is the top grosser among docs with $6.3 million. The Gotham Awards tapped “The Oath” — which wasn’t shortlisted by AMPAS — as the doc winner this week.
