Perhaps they just wanted to avoid controversy. Passion was obstensibly a foreign film so they could have thrown Mel a bone and nominated it for best foreign film. Farenheit was probably too controversial to nominate. Perhaps the folks doing the nominating felt it wasn't enough of a documentary to be included. Who knows?
