Speaking of Best Film in Foreign Language category:
I'm glad Israel's Hearat Shulayim/Footnote is nominated.
I saw it few days ago, and loved it!
It's the 10th Israeli movie to be nominated and the 4th one in the past 5 years.
Joseph Cedar, Footnote's director, was nominated in 2008 as well for Beaufort.
Israel has never won an Oscar, though.
Who knows, maybe this year it will change.
