9 Foreign-Language Films Advance in Oscar Race


Nine foreign-language films made the cut and will compete for an Oscar for the best foreign-language film.
The movies were chosen from the 85 that were submitted. 

Several hundred academy members voted for their favorites and narrowed the list down to 6. The executive committee added 3 more to the list. 

The nine films will now screen for committees who will vote for the nominees. 
Notably missing from the list are Paul Verhoeven’s movie Elle, and the Chilean movie Neruda. Both have been critics favorites and on many top 10 lists. The academy likes what they like. 

List of the 9 films that made the cut:
Tanna (Australia)
It’s Only the End of the World (Canada)
Land of Mine (Denmark)
Toni Erdmann (Germany)
The Salesman (Iran)
The King’s Choice (Norway)
Paradise (Russia)
A Man Called Ove (Sweden)
My Life as a Zucchini (Switzerland)
