The Academy Award for Best Oscar for best documentary. There have been three list that have been put out that I've seen recently, including one by a publication that covers independent films called Indiewire.

Nobody who respond to the survey has had the vaccine shot now regarding Sammy Davis Jr. Here's what happened. He campaigned tirelessly for JFK in 1960. And as reward JFK wanted him to perform at his inaugural. In fact, Sammy Davis Jr was engaged to an actress who happen to be white. He postponed the engagement because he didn't want to hurt Candies prospects in the South. Noisy campaign. Hey, postponed his wedding. JFK winds. Seventies gets wet gets gets married. Guess who gets disinvited? To the inaugural That's right. Sammy Davis did And JFK was not man enough to give him the news. Mano a mano. He asked. Franklin doctor to tell Sami the bad news. And instead of Frank, telling JFK to stick it He went to Sami. And told Sami he couldn't go to the inauguration. There's a piece in something called Bring Choir. Sammy Davis Jr kept a drug against J. F. K Mentions the tweet that I put out CNN. Is your article going to justify why Sammy Davis Jr was uninvited at his inauguration, even at Davis helped elect him. Hmm..
