    The Academy has released the full list of contenders, and most of them match up with what was already reported. It looks like Malta’s submission wasn’t accepted, so I’ve removed it from the list. Also, Sweden still has the same film, but the title has changed from Boy From Heaven to Cairo Conspiracy. https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/95aa_sl_international_feature_film.pdf

    India not submitting “RRR” is proving to be the gravest of dumb blunders. Yikes.

    RRR would’ve made this much more exciting. I actually like that there’s not a lot of buzzy films (some of the expected ones are kinda quiet) because it’ll be like 2020 when Tunisia and Hong Kong’s movies got in with little fanfare.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Argentina won the World Cup.

    Maybe, just maybe, this helps the movie’s chance at a nom/win?

    Decision to Leave will be winning this at Oscars, right? What’s the alternative?

    Is there any reason why Holy Spider is eligible to represent Denmark?
    Isn’t that film supposed to be Iranian?

    "Dearest Anita,..."failing to nominated for HK Film Awards is unjust

    If I’m not mistaken, Ali Abbasi (Director) has Danish citizenship. It was also co-produced by Nordisk Film, a Danish production company.

    With the Indian Committee, it’s not surprise. They are usually idiots and pompous wannabes.

    SHORTLISTED:

    Argentina – Argentina, 1985
    Austria – Corsage
    Belgium – Close
    Cambodia – Return to Seoul
    Denmark – Holy Spider
    France – Saint Omer
    Germany – All Quiet on the Western Front
    India – Last Film Show
    Ireland – The Quiet Girl
    Mexico – Bardo
    Morocco – The Blue Caftan
    Pakistan – Joyland
    Poland – EO
    South Korea – Decision to Leave
    Sweden – Cairo Conspiracy

    THOUGHTS
    1. I’ve only seen three of these. Rooting for all of them (Argentina, Germany, South Korea). If there’s a possible snub out of the frontrunners, I won’t be surprised if it is Argentina 1985.
    2. Last Film Show got in!!! I don’t know if I should pick it just for the passion for RRR or just ignore.
    3. My NGNG is Joyland.
    4. Tried to watch Bardo but I couldn’t make it past the first few minutes with the childbirth scene. I’ll probably pick it up again later if it gets serious hype again.
    5. My prediction:

    All Quiet on the Western Front
    Argentina 1985
    Close
    Decision to Leave
    Joyland

    I just love movies. And awards.

    I made check marks against the shortlisted films and I ticked off Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, and South Korea (and even Cambodia and Pakistan are possibilities) as definitely no doubt about it going to get nominated – that’s 8-10 films! And they often nominate one film that most of us have never heard of and will never be able to see where we live so… There are going to major “snubs” in this category!
