First submission is Never Gonna Snow Again from Poland.August 10, 2020 at 7:04 am #1203636950
Can’t wait to see how the movie is going to do at this year’s Venice Film Festival. When Blanchett was jury president at Cannes FF they awarded 3 movies that went on to receive Oscar nominations in this category.August 11, 2020 at 4:18 am #1203639527

You’d think that Paweł Pawlikowski winning Best Director for “Cold War”, in retrospect, paved the way for him to be in the running for Best Director Oscar nomination which he eventually got in that wide open field.
Good on Poland for being the first to submit. That bodes well for the quality of the film. I’m happy to see it in competition in Venice. Małgorzata Szumowska is a great director as well. Fingers crossed.August 28, 2020 at 3:09 am #1203671460
Switzerland chose My Little Sister as it’s Oscar submission.August 28, 2020 at 2:00 pm #1203672560
A lot of 3.5 stars reviews for My Little Sister on Letterboxd. So I guess that’s a no.August 29, 2020 at 7:30 am #1203673301
Switzerland chose My Little Sister as it’s Oscar submission.
Gee, if that’s the best Switzerland could come up with it must have been slim pickings.August 31, 2020 at 3:58 am #1203677201
How about My Prince Edward for Hong Kong’s Selection? it qualified for a good lot of Film Festivals.

John Denver Trending

for the Philippines submissions at the Oscars 2021September 4, 2020 at 6:02 am #1203685761
Bumping this in case you all have some suggestions (even if they’re not submitted yet)
I just love movies. And awards.September 4, 2020 at 8:04 am #1203685921
Well, my country (Brazil) is probably going to submit “Memory House”. It was selected at Cannes and TIFF. It talks about race issues which is a big subject especially in this year as we all know.
I’ve been trying to find what is trending in other countries but this year it is being quite difficult. Maybe Venice and Toronto will help. Summer of 85 from France seems good.September 4, 2020 at 9:09 am #1203686037
I’d love Portugal submitting Vitalina Varela but apparently this was released late last year in the country so anyways.
Would be one of the best winners in the category in years.September 6, 2020 at 3:00 am #1203688911
The hong kong film Beyond the Dream is also trending locally.
It’s a love story between a schizophrenic and a Counselor.
Over 10m box office in Hong Kong.
Could’ve been represented hk in Oscar’s.

It’s my top film of the year thus far, and I can’t really see that changing. What a stunner.
