    Parasite made history as the first non-English language film to win Best Picture. It was only, I believe, just the 10th non-English language film to make the Best Picture list. I think had the expanded Best Picture been around in the past decades, there could be more. I thought it would be fun to speculate which non-English films of the years with five nominees would’ve made the list based on the nominations they received beyond Best Foreign Language Film/International Feature. I think these are most likely:

    The Diving Bell and The Butterfly (Director, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography)*
    Pan’s Labyrinth (Screenplay, plus Cinematography, Makeup and Production Design wins)+
    City of God (Director, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography)*
    Talk to Her (Director plus Screenplay win)*
    Amelie (Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design, Sound Mixing (!!!))+
    Three Colors: Red (Director, Screenplay, Cinematography)*
    Cyrano de Bergerac (Actor, Production Design plus a Costumes win)+
    My Life As A Dog (Director and Screenplay)*
    Fanny & Alexander (Director, Screenplay, plus wins for Production Design, Cinematography and Costumes)
    Ran (Director, Production Design and Cinematography plus a win for Costumes)*
    Seven Beauties (Director, Screenplay, Actor)*
    Face to Face (Director and Actress)*
    Day For Night (Director, Screenplay, Supporting Actress)**
    A Man and a Woman (Director, Actress plus a Screenplay win)
    The Battle of Algiers (Director, Screenplay)**
    Divorce: Italian Style (Director, Actor plus a Screenplay win)*
    8½ (Director, Screenplay, Production Design plus a win for Costumes)

    + = lost International Feature
    * = not nominated for International Feature for whatever reason.
    **= won/nominated for International Feature in a different year due to weird rule.

    Did I miss anything?
