Foreign Language Oscar Contenders

Best Foreign Language Oscar Contenders

A record 83 countries submitted films for consideration in the Foreign Language Film category for the 87th Academy Awards®. Kosovo, Malta, Mauritania and Panama were first-time entrants. Once 2016 Oscar contenders begin being announced this list will update for the new year, for now why not let these films have a little more time in the sun?

    Of those submitted so far I've only seen Child's Pose, and I really hated it. It wasn't even the best Romanian movie I saw that day.

      As of today's update I've seen six of these:
      The Rocket
      Gloria
      Borgman
      Child's Pose
      Wadjda
      Eat Sleep Die

      I think Wadjda is easily the best of those.

    There's a critically acclaimed movie called "On The Job" from the Philippines to be released by Well Go USA on the 27th.

    I hope the Philippines will be chosen this time- Shortlist includes great films like OTJ: ON THE JOB (dir. Erik Matti)/ THY WOMB (dir. Brillante Mendoza)/ EKSTRA (dir. Jeffrey Jeturian)/ BOSES (dir. Ellen Ongkeko Marfil) and some possible candidates- TRANSIT (dir. Hannah Espia)/ and SANA DATI (dir. Jerrold Tarog) :-)
