Darlene Love in the Oscar nominated documentary “20 Feet From Stardom”

*Folks who have only heard about this Oscar nominated documentary about background singers can now see what all the fuss is about, thanks to a new 5 minute, behind the scenes featurette.

As Deadline.com points out, “There’s talk of a Broadway show. A TV movie is being developed for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network on the life of one of its subjects, Darlene Love. It became the number one grossing documentary of the year . And it has made the cut as one of the five nominees for Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars where many think it will go all the way and pick up the gold man.”

Director Morgan Neville’s “20 Feet From Stardom,” a look at the lives of several of the music industry’s greatest back-up singers, has been on fire since arriving in theaters last summer. And it shows no signs of slowing down.
