A documentary film about the life of the singer Demi Love, which has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, has been chosen as the best documentary film of the year by fans of the songstress, the Academy announced on Wednesday.
The film, Love & Hip Hop: From the Heart, is based on a book by Love, a musician and pop star, and premiered in 2014 to rapturous reviews.
The film’s star Demi, who also sang on Love’s 2016 single, Is There Anybody Out There?, was a fan of the album, and the film follows her journey from the heartbreak of a teenage pregnancy to her music and career.
It also won a Peabody Award, and is being nominated for Best Film Editing.
The nomination came as a surprise to many fans, as Love and her collaborators have often criticized the documentary’s accuracy.
The documentary includes many instances where Love and other stars have made comments about the songwriter and how she is not as beautiful as she has been portrayed.
