Going to the Oscars: Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s flick nominated for best documentary

|

Expect California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom to be hitting the red carpet at the Oscars this year — now that his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s film has been nominated for best documentary feature.

The nomination of the film for which Siebel Newsom served as executive producer, “The Invisible War,” a highly praised investigation of rape within the U.S. military, was announced Thursday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The film has already won the prestigious Audience Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

The other Oscar nominees in the category: “Searching for Sugar Man,” “”How to Survive a Plague,”
“The Gatekeepers” and “5 Broken Cameras.”

Here’s a full list of the nominees.

We wish Ms. Siebel Newsom — now pregnant with the couple’s third child — luck at the 85th Academy Awards presentation on Feb. 24.

Here’s the trailer from “The Invisible War”:
