No nomination in the Oscars’ foreign-language film category

No nomination for First They Killed My Father by the Academy Awards but with so many other nominations we are no reason to be anything but happy! 🙂 Congratulations to everyone nominated!

Now that nominations for the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards have been announced, awards season is in full swing. On Thursday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this year’s shortlist of potential Oscar contenders for best foreign-language film.

A record 92 films were submitted for consideration by their respective countries, and the final shortlist includes many expected entries — though it was not without some surprising snubs.

Palme d’Or winner The Square, a Swedish satire of the art world, earned a place on the list, as did Cannes Jury Prize winner Loveless, a drama about divorce and missing persons hailing from Russia. Many expected to see Angelina Jolie earn a nomination for her Cambodian film First They Killed My Father after it received a Golden Globe nod Monday, but it didn’t make the cut.

The selected films (along with country of origin and director) are:

Chile, A Fantastic Woman, Sebastián Lelio, director
Germany, In the Fade, Fatih Akin, director
Hungary, On Body and Soul, Ildikó Enyedi, director
Israel, Foxtrot, Samuel Maoz, director
Lebanon, The Insult, Ziad Doueiri, director
Russia, Loveless, Andrey Zvyagintsev, director
Senegal, Félicité, Alain Gomis, director
South Africa, The Wound, John Trengove, director
Sweden, The Square, Ruben Östlund, director

The nine titles will now screen for committees who will vote for the final nominees in the category, which will be announced Jan. 23. The 90th Oscars will be held Sunday, March 9, and will be televised on ABC.
