One of 3 Must-Watch Foreign Language Films for Oscar Nominations
The Hollywood Reporter / Scott Feinberg

The Academy’s foreign language branch is another one that has a long history of making strange and surprising selections, but unless they go way off the beaten path this year, their five slots will almost certainly include these three films:

The Iranian entry A Separation, Asghar Farhadi’s critically acclaimed look at domestic strife in Tehran, already has been named best foreign language film by the New York Film Critics Online. It also placed second in that category with the Boston Society of Film Critics, was nominated in that category for a Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award and won the Los Angeles Film Critics Association’s award for best original screenplay, making it the first foreign language film to win that prize.
