‘Hoop’ Scoop

Although “Hoop Dreams” got shut out of Oscar nominations for either best picture or best documentary, Fine Line Features is getting strong response after running a Daily Variety ad urging filmmakers to seek an Academy investigation over why the critically lauded film was fouled.

The ad ran Feb. 22, and already 212 Academy members have responded, including Sidney Lumet, John Singleton, Bud Yorkin, Lawrence Kasdan, Larry Gordon, Bud Cort and Mary-Louise Parker. Even Woody Allen, a non-Academy director, weighed in. Too bad there’s no opportunity for write-in votes on the Oscar ballot.
