Oscar's International Race Pt 5 - The Eye Candy

by Nathaniel R

Now that we've coveredfemale directors,returning auteurs,trivia,and half ofthe trailers,and updatedall the charts,let's do something lighter...and sexier...before we wrap up with the rest of the movie trailers.

We've selected 9 hunks for you to gawk at from the 93 films submitted.In the comments we trust that you'll let us know whose,uh,native tongue you'd most like to learn.

For educational purposes.

After the jump,beautiful men from Argentina,Norway,Pakistan,Thailand,and more...

AHMED ALI AKBAR - Pakistan,Laal Kabotaar
He's been famous in Pakistan for years in films and on TV as an actor and singer.He's currently starring in their Oscar submission,which is a crime thriller.You can follow himon Instagramif you wish.

DINO BAJR0VIC - Bosnia & Herzegovina,The Son
His father is the famous Slavic actor Izudin Bajrovic (who also appears inThe Son).The younger Bajrovic originally wasn't going to go into acting but somewhere along the line he changed course and he's just finishing up University in the Performing Arts.InThe Sonhe plays the lead role of an adopted teenager who is perpetually acting out.You can follow himon Instagramwhere he is often doing sporty type things.

In this gay drama about a father visiting his recently deceased son's boyfriend in NYC,Barbosa plays the boyfriend reprising his role from the stage play this film was based on.It's only his second film as an actor but he also served on two documentaries as a cinematographer.We haven't been able to find out much more info about him but he looks very tall.Is he?

ROY CHIU -  Taiwan,Dear Ex
The gorgeous 37 year old actor/pop star was nominated for Best Actor at the Golden Horse awards last season for this role in which he plays a messy free spirited  theater director who can't get rid of the widow and young son of the man he was in love with before his tragic death.  Charming funny film despite the undertow of grief.You can find fan pages for Chiu on Instagram but not the real thing.  The gif above is Chiu getting a shout outat the Golden Horse Awards last year.

CHINO DARIN - Argentina,Heroic Losers
We drooled in his general direction last year when he starred in not one but two Oscar submissions (El Angel,A 12 Year Night).He looks even better a year later (Heroic Losers,in which he co-stars with his movie-star father,Ricardo Darin).Yes,somehow that is possible,defying all rules of science.And every once in a while his Instagram gets shamelesslythirst-trappy...which could partially account for those 1 million followers.Well,that and the fresh movie stardom that's arrived just in time for his thirtysomething years...

MIRON ONDRÍK - Slovakia,Let There Be Light
This 39 year old has been been working steadily for 10 years now in TV and film.He's from a huge family (seven siblings).He previously co-starred in the Slovak submissionEva Nova(2016) from the same director Marko Skop.This time he has the lead role as a father who discovers his son is a bully and part of a para-military youth group (radicalized young men is a theme popping up in several films of late.An ominous sign of the times)

TOBIAS SANTLEMANN - Norway,Out Stealing Horses
The most delicious of theKon-Tikisailors in Norway's 2012 Oscar nominated film,is back in a Norwegian Oscar submission.This time he's playing father to the protagonist in this bifurcated drama's World War II era sequences.If he looks familiar that's because he's done a lot of film and TV work.The 39 year old Norwegian star can also be seen in the TV seriesThe Last KingdomandBorderliner(both streaming on Netflix),and American movies likeHerculesandPoint Breakin addition to his work in acclaimed Norwegian films likeKon-Tiki,I Am Yours,andIn Order of Disappearance.He has far too few followers onInstagramgiven his general awesomeness in looks and talent.

RANVEER SINGH - India,Gully Boy
The 34 year old is one of Bollywood's highest paid actors and a major celebrity (27 millions of followers on Instagram) and style icon in India.He's married to another Bollywood fashion-plate Deepika Padukone who you'll recallmade her own major waves on the Cannes red carpet this past summer.

OABNITHI WIWATTANAWARANG - Thailand,Krause: Inhuman Kiss
This 25 year old Thai actor is the object of the demon's affection inInhuman Kiss,and his smile makes her head's tendency to fly right off of her body in search for flesh totally,like,relatable.The young heartthrob already has 1.2 million followerson Instagram.

So which of these movies do you wanna see now?
