Tasha Oldham's documentary The Smith Family, about a Mormon family coping with a father's gay affairs and his seroconversion to HIV (which he transmitted to his wife), was nominated Thursday for the Directors Guild of America's Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary award. Also nominated this year were Chuck Braverman's Bottom of the Ninth, Malcolm Clarke and Stuart Sender's Prisoner of Paradise, Rob Fruchtman and Rebecca Cammisa's Sister Helen, and Leah Mahan's Sweet Old Song, P.O.V. A surprising omission was Michael Moore's successful documentary Bowling for Columbine, which garnered Moore nominations from both the Writers Guild of America and the Academy Awards.
