Oscar Predictions: Best Foreign Film

Last year’s nominees: The Baader Meinhof Complex, The Class, Departures, Revanche, Waltz with Bashir

This year’s finalists: The White Ribbon (Germany), A Prophet (France), Ajami (Israel), The Secret of Her Eyes (Argentina), Samson & Delilah (Australia), Winter in Wartime (The Netherlands), Kelin (Kazakhstan), The World is Big and Salvation Lurks Around the Corner (Bulgaria), The Milk of Sorrow (Peru)

Notable films not selected: I Killed My Mother (Canada), Police, Adjective (Romania), About Elly (Iran), Mother (Korea)

The rundown: I really wish they’d release all these movies earlier, because at this point I’ve only seen “The White Ribbon” and “A Prophet,” both of which were great. The rest of my predictions are merely educated guesses. Anyone have anything to add?

Forecasted winner: The White Ribbon
