Oscars’ Foreign Film Short List Includes Biutiul


The Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Language Film will be announced on Tuesday, but today, the category's eight-film short list was released. The five nominees will be chosen from a group that includes the Javier Bardem drama Biutiful, Danish Golden Globe winner In a Better World, Algeria's Outside the Law, Canada' Incendies, Greece's Dogtooth, Japan's Confessions, South Africa's Life, Above All, Spain's Even the Rain, and Sweden's Simple Simon. The most notable snub? Almost certainly Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Apichatpong Weerasethakul's out-there Palme d'Or winner. [Indiewire]
