International films on Oscar shortlist
Ten international films, including widely acclaimed offerings from South Korea, Spain and Senegal, are on the shortlist of movies vying for Academy Award nominations.
The best international feature shortlist announced Monday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences includes Bong Joon Ho‘s “Parasite,” Pedro Almodovar‘s semi-autobiographical “Pain and Glory,” and “Atlantics,” Senegal’s entry from history-making director Mati Diop.
In May, Diop became the first black woman to compete for the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival. That honor went to “Parasite,” while “Atlantics” won the festival’s Grand Prix honor. If “Parasite” or “Atlantics” receive nominations, they would mark the first for South Korea and Senegal, respectively.
It is the first year the Oscar will be awarded under a new name: best international feature film. The category was previously known as the best foreign language film.
The 10 short-listed films are: the Czech Republic’s “The Painted Bird”; Estonia’s “Truth and Justice”; France’s “Les Misérables”; Hungary’s “Those Who Remained”; North Macedonia’s “Honeyland”; Poland’s “Corpus Christi”; Russia’s “Beanpole”; Senegal’s “Atlantics”; South Korea’s “Parasite”; and Spain’s “Pain and Glory.”
Nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards will be announced Jan. 13.
