OSCAR WATCH: The Foreign Films

The shortlist of 9 films vying for Oscar's Foreign Language film nominations has just been announced. I wish I could watch all of them, as international cinema always hides some real gems. "A Separation" is still in the running and should have no problem advancing and ultimately claiming the statue. Pina is also still alive, making it a strong candidate for double nominations (Foreign Language and Documentary Feature). Here are the 9 shortlisted films:

Bullhead
Monsieur Lazhar
Superclásico
Pina
A Separation
Footnote
Omar Killed Me
In Darkness
Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale

Surprise Snubs:
- Where Do We Go Now? (People's Choice Award winner, Toronto International Film Festival)
- Le Havre
