I’ve not seen any, but surely it’s one of France (120 BPM); Israel (Foxtrot); Sweden (The Square).
Anything else winning would be a shock, no?
Well, I guess it also depends whether the field is packed or not, but there always are surprises in this category (with the final five nominees, I mean), so I’d actually be more surprised if all the three of them get nominated.September 22, 2017 at 10:09 am #1202221146
Italy has a list of 14 choices, and the candidate will be picked on the 26th of this month. I haven’t seen most of the films, but we don’t have a credible contender. Count Italy out.September 22, 2017 at 12:56 pm #1202221259

I think A Fantastic Woman is the favourite. In recent years Oscar winners in this category have been more in line with critical convention. Prior to 2011 this was more of a pot luck category.September 23, 2017 at 8:40 am #1202221873

Should be a good race!

Has everyone already seen Jolie’s film on Netflix?September 25, 2017 at 7:22 pm #1202223511
Has everyone already seen Jolie’s film on Netflix?
Hoping it’s ignored this year. While I found myself enjoying some of the later sequences (and a select few others throughout), it was a formulaic disappointment.
On another note, can Zvyagintsev have a redemption arc this season, please?September 25, 2017 at 8:09 pm #1202223529
I saw Jolie’s movie and liked it quite a bit but didn’t love it. I could definitely see it getting nominated for foreign language film but I don’t see it getting directing or screenplay or anything like that.September 26, 2017 at 3:57 am #1202223739
