Complaining about the Academy Awards is the national pastime of many movie fans, but let’s not forget that they can do good. Sometimes. After all, the Foreign Language Film Oscar helps bring international cinema to the attention of casual filmgoers who otherwise wouldn’t venture outside of Hollywood filmmaking. Like with any awards category, great films get snubbed and the lesser entries often triumph over masterpieces (we’re still sore about Ruben Ostlund’s brilliant Force Majeure not even getting a nomination last year), but at least this category represents a window into a much wider world of filmmaking.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released the full list of every movie eligible for the Foreign Language Film Oscar this year. The full list, numbering 82 entries, can be scanned at your leisure after the jump.

Last night brought the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards to Fox, and you can find the full list of big winners from television’s biggest night right here. But in addition to the awards being handed out, some fun was hand thanks to host Andy Samberg.
While Samberg’s jokes struggled here and there, his earnest charm and goofiness helped some of the more silly jokes land pretty well, unless of course you just don’t like the Saturday Night Live veteran.

The Academy’s choice of Best Picture inspires some grumbling every year, but one of the most controversial upsets in recent memory occurred in 2006, when Crash won over Brokeback Mountain. Ten years later, even director Paul Haggis is willing to concede his film didn’t deserve the top prize. “Was it the best film of the year? I don’t think so,” he said. Read Haggis’ Crash Best Picture comments after the jump. Read More »

After five to ten years of five to ten Best Picture nominees, the Oscars are eyeing a return to old ways. The Academy reportedly wants to shrink the Best Picture pool back down to five nominees.
The rule limiting nominees to five had been in place since the mid-1940s, but was changed in 2009 to include 10 nominees, and then again in 2011 to include 5-10 nominees. Now it might change again. More on the possible Oscars Best Picture nominees rule change after the jump. Read More »
There are so many complaints about the Golden Globes and the Oscars each year, I’m surprised there isn’t more love for the MTV Movie Awards. Granted, teens rule the day and while the nominees definitely line up more with the moviegoing populous, the winners generally skew younger. So films like Twilight and The Hunger Games regularly beat geek movies and Oscar contenders.
Case in point, the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations. Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars lead all the nominees with seven each. Guess which one I’m betting wins the most? Still, it’s a fun list of nominations including categories like Best Fight, Best WTF Moment and Best On-Screen Transformation.
The 2015 MTV Movie Awards will air on April 12, hosted by Amy Schumer. Below, see the nominations. Read More »
