Oscar Nominees: Best Foreign Film

My predictions: 5/5
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Biutiful, Dogtooth, In a Better World, Incendies, Outside the Law

I was equally stunned and impressed to find myself with a perfect score in this category, one in which I’ve only seen one of nine of the finalists. Fortunately, it seems both readers and I might have the chance to see most or all of these at some point soon. “Biutiful” is currently out in theatres, “Dogtooth” is on DVD, and the other three, from Denmark, Canada, and Algeria, respectively, should be released in theatres this spring. “Biutiful” gets a boost thanks to lead actor Javier Bardem’s nomination, and “In a Better World” is also in good shape after winning the Golden Globe in this category.

My current bet to win: “In a Better World”
