MORAINE, Ohio (AP) -- The documentary about the closing of a General Motors Co. plant in southwest Ohio has earned an Academy Award nomination.
Oscar nominations announced Tuesday included one for "The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant," for best documentary short.
The 40-minute film was produced by Yellow Springs, Ohio, filmmakers Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert. It premiered last Aug. 19 in Dayton, attended by hundreds of the autoworkers who lost their jobs when the sport utility vehicle plant in Moraine closed.
The 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be presented March 7.
