    It was, but was disqualified because Bhutan had not “formed a committee” to make the decision. Stupid bureaucratic technicality, but the Academy still rejected it.

    Anyway, Memoria, Drive My Car, and Cliff Walkers wipe the floor with the rest of this list, which means none of them will come close to the nomination lol. Sad.

    Hmmm… I could’ve sworn Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom was last year’s submission for Bhutan too.

    Bhutan and Uzbekistan picked last year but they didn’t enter for technical process. In Uzbekistan it was for the release date. Bhutan commented about the jury committee.

    My guess at the shortlist, with *early nominee guesses:
    Austria – “Great Freedom”
    Costa Rica – “Clara Sola”
    Denmark – “Flee”*
    Finland – “Compartment No. 6”*
    Germany – “I’m Your Man”
    Iran – “A Hero”*
    Iraq – “Europa”
    Italy – “The Hand of God”*
    Japan – “Drive My Car”*
    Jordan – “Amira”
    Kosovo – “Hive”
    Mexico – “Prayers for the Stolen”
    Norway – “The Worst Person in the World”
    Poland – “Leave No Traces”
    Russia – “Unclenching the Fists”

    I’d love to see Memoria make the list but don’t want to get my hopes up.

    Harsh stuff. I wonder how Amazon will react to this. The Salesman benefited from the Trump stuff (yes, it did, Toni Erdmann was absolutely locked to win until it wasn’t)

    Another remind that International Feature should go to the Director and not to the country.

    If anything it could boost votes for A Hero even if it has to be outside the International category like Director/Screenplay.

    The Salesman benefited from the Trump stuff (yes, it did, Toni Erdmann was absolutely locked to win until it wasn’t)

    The Salesman was definitely helped by the political climate but Toni Erdmann was always going to be a tough sell and they would’ve looked for an alternative no matter what. And, like Cannes juries, I think Oscar voters tend to be much more on board with his Iranian-set films post-A Separation than critics who loved Erdmann.

    (yes, it did, Toni Erdmann was absolutely locked to win until it wasn’t)

    I loved The Salesman but Toni Erdmann was so robbed of that award.

    Sandra Huller and Peter Simonischek should have won both their acting categories too.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    Toni Eardmann wasn’t the frontrunner in 2016. A 3-hour dramedy was never going to win this. There was no frontrunner that year, so The Salesman benefited from politics.

    If Iran doesn’t remove the submission, A Hero is now locked for a nomination at least.

    The Oscars have finally confirmed all the submissions, and it looks like all 93 that have been submitted are still eligible. Now, we just need to see what makes the shortlist on December 21. https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/94aa-international-feature-eligibility-list.pdf

    The Worst Person in the World is going to be part of the 2022 Sundance line up.

    Faith is being restored in this one, but nothing of this makes sense if it doesn’t get a nomination first, and to get a nomination people need to watch it.

    Jordan has pulled their contender Amira from the lineup due to protests over its controversial plot. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/jordan-withdraws-oscar-hopeful-amira-after-controversy-1235060030/

    Compartment No6 now has European Film Awards, BIFA Awards and Golden Globe nominations. It’s not getting in at the Critics Choice, but it does seem to be getting stronger.

    We’ll see in a short bit if you’re right, but until then, why wouldn’t it get in at Critics’ Choice? I don’t see why not.

    But yes, Compartment No. 6 has definitely emerged as a very robust contender and it shouldn’t be underestimated.

    For the same reason they snubbed Quo Vadis Aida, Never Look Away, Loveless and A Man Called Ove. It’s not a “cool” pick.

    I think they will nominate A Hero, Drive My Car, Flee, The Worst Person in the World, Parallel Mothers and Titane, if there’s 6 nominees.

    Well, you’re right! They snubbed Compartment No. 6, and nominate: Drive My Car, Flee, The Hand of God, A Hero, and The Worst Person in the World. Still, Compartment No. 6 is a robust contender and I’m feeling confident it gets an Oscar nomination.
