    Is “Bacurau” eligible to be submitted this year by Brazil? I have heard a lot of buzz about that film.

    Also if “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” was submitted this year it would have a chance at not only International film but some above the line nominations.

    I don’t know about Bacurau but Portrait of a Lady on Fire is not eligible.

    I know Portrait isn’t eligible, I just meant it could have done really well this year with nominations if it was.

    Got you, sorry I misread. And I definitely agree.

    Bacurau is not eligible as it was released in Brazil in August 2019.

    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.

    Do you think Brazil will select this film, given the censorship of the government?

    Bacurau won’t be eligible (2019 release).

     

    Complete toss-up year for this category. Bizarre year in general, but I don’t remember the last time I couldn’t compile a solid top five or so by September. Might depend on what wins Venice honestly.

    Right now I’d say these films might have a chance at the Oscar—

    Druk (Denmark)
    Quo Vadis, Aida? (Bosnia)
    There Is No Evil (Iran)
    The Disciple (India)
    Never Gonna Snow Again (Poland) (already nominated)

    …but at the same time, I feel like none of them have a real chance.

    The last two years were such runaways that I forgot how broad this race can be.

    There’s no truly censorship here, as far as I know, we just have a really bad president (especially in matters related to the arts). That being said, it depends, the Brazilian Academy will select the film, and I believe 99% of the people there definetely don’t support Bolsonaro.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    AMPAS selected the Brazillian Cinema Academy (which has no relation at all with our current government) as the only responsible to pick our submission for International Film. And that news comes to avoid any censorship like Aquarius not being submitted in 2016 for political reasons.

    I’m from Brazil.

    I know the Brazilian Cinema Academy has some independence, but the new secretary of culture said he wants to interfere on the movie will be chosen for the Oscars.

    I know our government is composed by f***ing morons who overestimate how much they can actually censor people, but I’m still worried about how these f***ing f*cks will try to interfere.

    However, last year The Invisible Life was a very inspired choice to represent our country, so I think I might be exaggerating a bit on my concerns.

    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.

    It’s likely that Portugal will submit “Mosquito” by João Nuno Pinto. The portuguese academy just submitted the movie for Goya’s awards.

    According to this article Night of the Kings is Ivory Coast’s submission (and was bought by NEON).

    Mixed reactions to Night of the Kings in Venice.

    I wonder if Mexico is going to submit Nuevo Orden, its showing at Venice tomorrow, and then at TIFF so it would make sense.

    Night of the Kings sounds like One Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Would be interesting to see the tales of the country incorporated in it.

    I just love movies. And awards.
