9 Foreign Film Finalists for the Oscar Race

by Nathaniel R

"The Wound"from South Africa might be the biggest surprise on the finalist list.The Academy's foreign film nominating committees have whittled down the 92 contenders to 9.If you've forgotten or never heard the procedure it involves multiple volunteers watching a certain number of entries to be eliglble to vote on them.The top six films advance from those ballots and the executive committee chooses another three which makes the 9 finalists.Then a final committee watches the nine finalists and votes to determine the five nominations.We correctly predicted 7 of the 9 finalist (you can peak herethough we'll be updating that chart to reflect the official standings shortly)
