Golden Globe Nominees: Best Foreign Language Film

My predictions: 2/5
What’s missing? Le Havre, Miss Bala, Where Do We Go Now?

I didn’t feel too confident predicting this category, and I’m not sure I have any more knowledge about it now. A Separation (Iran) seems to be the frontrunner at this point for the Oscars, and The Flowers of War (China) is also a contender. The other three films, however, will only compete here, as their countries have submitted different entries for the Oscar race. Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In made it in expectedly, joined by Angelina Jolie’s In the Land of Blood and Honey and The Kid with a Bike, from Belgium. I’ve only seen one of these films, so please offer your thoughts in the comments if you’re more up to date.

What could win? I’m going to pick “A Separation” over “The Skin I Live In,” though it could go either way.
