Further elaborates on the Complexities and Stupidities of Rigid Awards Systems Rules (be it the Genies or in this case, The Oscars Foreign Language film: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Movies/02/21/

I don't have to much of an issue with the one country/ one movie rule. I do have a bit of a problem with some of the other rules with language and content. If a foreign country chooses their favorite local film, why should the academy disqualify something cause the director was swiss, or English was approx 50% of the film.

4, 3, 2 wasn't disqualified. The academy just didn't think it was worthy of a nomination.

Indeed you are correct Henrik (the dangers of having things pop up in the middle of recording, for some reason I believed that Romania submitted something different. Perhaps the academy thought the subject matter was too intense for consideration? Cannes winners actually rarely overlap with Oscar Winners…

Henrik

They probably just were bored and felt that it was more appropriate to nominate a Genghis Khan biopic with some massive horsearmy set piece.

Cannes exists to celebrate the artistry in filmmaking all over the world though. It can hardly be compared to the american awards. Obviously they'll celebrate american filmmaking over interesting filmmaking (I'm not saying american filmmaking can't be interesting, just that if the two should clash nationality is the first priority. Case in point: Juno vs. The Diving Bell & The Butterfly. It's the same in every country though, I make no excuses for some of the pathetic awards given out where I live either).

Have you seen Mongol, Henrik? The set piece in the film is almost inconsequential. One of the great things about that film is how it defies expectations (admittedly set by first the title and subject of the film, later by the trailers and clips released) and delivers something much richer. Mongol is a very good film.

I will admit to baiting with my comment. I have not seen it, and I know you liked it :P.

I'm easy to bait. No secret there.

"4, 3, 2 wasn’t disqualified. The academy just didn’t think it was worthy of a nomination."

Then the foreign branch of the Academy are a bunch of fucktards. …again, without having seen any of the other nominees.

Henrik

I agree with you Andrew.

Other than some of the cinematography in a few scenes I 30 Days of Night offered hardly anything. The ending sucked and it felt like 1 day of night. There was no feeling of people being under attack for 30 days straight.

Guys – great show. No disagreements from me on any of the points and that trailer for 5cm….AWESOME. I need to go looking for this.
