anvil 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil' wins feature documentary award from IDA“Anvil! The Story of Anvil” has won the top prize from the International Documentary Association.

The movie, which chronicles the ups and downs of eponymous Canadian heavy metal band, also won the music documentary award earlier this week, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The rockumentary was excluded from even being considered for the Oscar for Best Documentary, largely regarded a snub of this fan favorite by the Academy.

In the feature documentary category, “Anvil” beat out Oscar-favorites “Food, Inc.” and “Mugabe and the White African.” “Anvil” stars Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner and features cameos by Slash of Guns n Roses and Lars Ulrich of Metallica.
