    Denmark will be very likely to submit The Guilty, but a decission is yet to be made.

    Is it a good film?

    I believe it’s a great piece of cinema, all set in one location. It got great reviews at Sundance and has been sold for distribution to most territories around the world. So it might have a shot at a nomination.

    So The Wild Pear Tree is Turkey’s submission apparently. This will be the 5th submission of a film directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, he has only made the shortlist once and was never nominated. So it will be interesting how this one fares with the Academy.

    Lord knows Winter Sleep should have won the Oscar four years ago; even if The Wild Pear Tree doesn’t quite measure up, I still feel Ceylan is owed a statue.

    Can you link an article that confirms this is Turkey’s official submission? I’ve been looking all over the Internet and haven’t found anything. None of the major Hollywood trades are reporting that this is their submission. Given that this competed at Cannes, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this is Turkey’s submission, but I’m hesitant to add it to the list unless there is unquestionable proof that it’s their submission.

    I would assume Japan is submitting Shoplifting, South Korea is submitting Burning, and China is submitting Operation Red Sea or Dying to Survive

    Well everything I can find is all in Turkish, and I don’t think they’d work for you. Sorry.

    I tried Googling it again and I did find a few English-language articles, all of them saying that The Wild Pear Tree is Turkey’s submission, so I’ll be adding it to the list now.

    One of the best sources for this information is Wikipedia:

    I do check Wikipedia often. When I made that original statement, there was no link at the time confirming that The Wild Pear Tree was Turkey’s submission. But now that there is, I’ve added it to the list.

    Japan has made recently some strange choices. Apparently, Koreeda has some friction with government and that can be an issue. But if they end up submitting it, surely will make the top 5. I hope China submits Locarno winner ‘A Land Imagined’.

    Mexico has this year some strong films. Cuaron’s Roma would be the natural choice, but Ruizpalacio’s Museo is a tailor-made Oscar film. Maybe they could let Roma compete in the other categories and submit Museo in FLF. Still, I hope Roma is submitted.

    I don’t have the inside scoop, but some people on the Roma thread mentioned that it can’t compete in FLF. I have no idea why though. I might be a little afraid that it’s submission for FLF would reduce its chances for other awards (BP, Director mostly), but if it’s strong enough I think it can push through. I hope the guys on that thread are just misinformed because it looks liked it’d be a great pick for Mexico.

    For a film to qualify in the Foreign Language Category it must play commercially (or I think at least 1 week prior to the cutoff day of 1 October).

    Mu guess, and its only a guess is that as Roma is a Netflix film, Netflix may not be releasing it in Mexico prior to that date (if at all in cinemas) and if that is the case Roma would not qualify for this category.
