As the HBO Scientology documentary "Going Clear" prepares for award season, the church ramps up its smear campaign against the film.By Lexie Hammesfahr | October 11, 2015
If there's one thing that's been made clear about the church of Scientology, it's that it doesn't want the HBO documentary "Going Clear" to receive any form of praise.
That smear campaign is getting more intense as the documentary gains momentum going into Oscar season — after all, it won three out of the seven Emmys it was nominated for.
In addition to reportedly making a film about "Going Clear" director Alex Gibney, the church has apparently made efforts to contact several members of the Academy's documentary branch.
