    1960 Melina Mercouri, Never On Sunday
    1961 Sophia Loren for Two Women (WINNER)
    1964 Sophia Loren for Marriage – Italian Style
    1966 Anouk Aimee for A Man and a Woman
    1966 Ida Kaminska for The Shop On Main Street
    1972 Liv Ullmann for The Emigrants
    1975 Isabelle Adjani for The Story of Adele H.
    1976 Marie-Christine Barrault for Cousin, Cousine
    1976 Liv Ullmann for Face To Face
    1978 Ingrid Bergman for Autumn Sonata
    1989 Isabelle Adjani for Camille Claudel
    1992 Catherine Deneuve for Indochine
    1998 Fernanda Montenegro for Central Station
    2004 Catalina Moreno Sandino, Maria Full Of Grace
    2006 Penelope Cruz for Volver
    2007 Marion Cotillard for La Vie en Rose (WINNER)
    2012 Emmanuelle Riva for Amour
    2014 Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night

    Sophia Loren and Marion Cotillard have been the only winners. There has been one Supporting Actress nominee in a foreign language film (Valentina Cortesa, Day For Night, 1974) – amazingly, Carmen Maura was not nominated for Volver, 2006!

    It still pains me to this day that Emmanuelle Riva’s masterclass performance lost to Academy’s boner over Lawrence’s clamfest.

    I’m still heartbroken about that. It was her effing birthday. She’s nearly 90.

    I’d say that’s slightly unfair on Lawrence, but it did make me laugh.

    It’s interesting, and saddening, that the Academy have never taken the initiative to recognise supporting performances in foreign films the way they have with leads (I don’t think any supporting males have been nominated either). Also, no foreign film has ever been nominated for more than one acting category.

    Robert De Niro spoke in Italian (except for one word) in The Godfather Part II, and Penelope Cruz spoke in both english and spanish in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but both were english language movies.

    I think it was criminal that Jean-Louis Trintignant wasn’t nominated alongside Emmanuelle Riva for Amour ): Beautiful haunting performances by both of them

    Polish????? you might want to say “Slovak”
    And Fernanda Montenegro performance was in Portuguese… so i wonder which are the two performances in Spanish. (i know, Catalina and Pe)

    I dont remember who, but there was one performance in Yiddish… i think it was Carol Kane for the movie Hester Street in 1975

    Melina Mercouri in Never on Sunday (Greek) in 1960…

    you can find a complete list here

    Valentina Cortesse for Days for night was nominated as supporting actress. 

    Adriana Bazarra was partly in spanish and Rinko Kikuchi was in Japanese sign languaje. Both from Babel,not a 100% “foreign” languaje film, but the performances were.

    ^ Shit yeah, should’ve remember Cortese because Ingrid Bergman gave a shout-out to her in her 3rd Oscar speech. (She knew her Oscar was b.s.) Good catch.

    I don’t count Barraza and Kikuchi because Babel is technically an English language film but with several subtitled foreign languages because of its global theme. It’s not a case of the Academy taking initiative to nominate a deserving nominee in a purely non-English film. Babel had Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. All of Hollywood was watching it.

    I’m so happy and excited about Cotillard’s surprising, unexpected nomination…

    Would have loved to see Hanna Schygulla receive more this side of the pond than a Globe nomination.

    I was thinking the same thing. Moreno was nominated for Best Actress for the Spanish language ‘Maria Full of Grace’.

    This would have been the PERFECT time to acknowledge a riveting foreign language supporting performance from Agata Kulesza in “Ida.” She mops the floor with most of this middling Supporting Actress lineup.

    Thanks for all the corrections! (:

    I re-watched Ida last night and I just don’t get how Agata Kulesza is considered a “Supporting Actress” – yes, she’s MIA for the last 10 minutes or so of the movie, but she has more lines than the other Agata, and almost as much screen time! She was superb whichever category she belongs in.

    Must admit, I’ve never seen Maria Full of Grace – is it considered a Spanish language film?

    I simply forgot that Brazilian films are in Portuguese (Central Station)

    I am struck by how many more females have been nominated than males:

    1962 Marcello Matrioanni, Divorce – Italian Style
    1976 Giancarlo Giannini, Seven Beauties
    1977 Marcello Mastrioanni, A Special Day
    1987 Marcello Mastrioanni, Dark Eyes
    1995 Massimo Troisi, Il Postino (The Postman)
    1998 Roberto Benigni, Life Is Beautiful (WINNER)
    2010 Javier Bardem, Biutiful

    Have I forgotten any? I didn’t include Jean Dujardin in The Artist because while it was a French film it’s silent… Robert De Niro’s supporting performance in The Godfather Part II was (with the exception of one word) completely in Italian but the film itself was English language…

    I think it was criminal that the Academy didn’t nominate Matthieu Amalric for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Jean-Louis Trintignant for Amour, just to name two that come quickly to my mind…
