It's bound to be a foreign film fiasco at the Oscars this year.
Walter
Salles' "The Motorcycle Diaries," Pedro Almodovar's "Bad Education,"
Jean-Pierre Annaud's "A Very Long Engagement" and Agnes Jaoui's "Look at
Me"
are not eligible because of politics, even though each director has
previously
received nominations for Best Foreign Language feature.
According to the Academy's arcane rules, every country selects one
film
to submit for consideration. Spain, for example, chose "The Sea Within,"
the
true story of a paraplegic's campaign for assisted suicide, instead of
"Bad
Education." Insofar as "The Motorcycle Diaries" is concerned, it was
filmed in
several South American countries, largely with U.S. funding; as a
result, no
one country claimed ownership. "A Very Long Engagement" failed to meet
the
Sept. 15th deadline for an opening in its country of origin and "Look at
Me"
seems to have been felled by France's enthusiasm for "Les Choristes," a
sentimental musical directed by the lesser-known Christopher Barratie.


BEST FAMILY FILM (live-action):
Finding Neverland
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Freddie Highmore, Finding Neverland
Lindsay Lohan, Mean Girls

Barratie.

HERO also shouldn't be in that list as it was already nom'd a couple of
years ago.

i'd also put INTIMATE STRANGERS in the list. Patrice Leconte is great.
