Academy Announced Foreign Language Film Shortlist

The Academy announced today its nine finalists for the Best Foreign Language Film, and two of my predicted nominees, the Turkey's Winter Sleep and Canada's Mommy failed the cut. I have since added in Mauritania's Timbuktu, and Argentina's Wild Tales into those last two slots, although there is not one among the nine that isn't in the running. A lot of people are shocked that Two Days, One Night didn't make the top nine, but I just didn't see this particular voting body going for the film (I probably should have also seen the Mommy snub coming). Anyway, more on the subject later. Check out, and check out the list below:

Accused (The Netherlands)
Corn Island (Georgia)
Force Majeure (Sweden)
Ida (Poland)
Leviathan (Russia)
The Liberator (Venezuela)
Tangerines (Estonia)
Timbuktu (Mauritania)
Wild Tales (Argentina)

My updated Oscar predictions:

Force Majeure
Wild Tales
