Poll: Veritas Award

As we all know, there is less and less money allocated to investigative, in-depth reporting and there is an ever-increasing corporate pressure to deliver the cheapest form of “surface news.”

And so we must celebrate the quiet, unglamorous heroes who toil away — very often in oblivion, bringing to light the stories that reveal corruption or injustice or criminality and, sometimes, even human accomplishments and triumphs.

The Veritas Award honors filmmaking dedicated to portraying the conquests and trials of real people. Tell us which movie deserves to be the next to receive this honor. Past winners include “Spotlight,” “Hidden Figures,” “The Post,” “Green Book” and “Bombshell.”

Here are the 10 contenders for this year’s Veritas Award:

  • “Hillbilly Elegy”
  • “Judas and the Black Messiah”
  • “Mank”
  • “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”
  • “Nomadland”
  • “One Night in Miami”
  • “The Mauritanian”
  • “The Outpost”
  • “The Trial of the Chicago 7”
  • “The United States vs. Billie Holiday”
