Oscar has officially announced the Foreign Language Submissions Listthat we've been tracking for a while @ the site.
Please Welcome: Costa Rica, Iraq, and Fiji submitting for the first time.
Bye-Bye: Entries from Nepal, Venezuela, and Uruguay which didn't make the cut.
No Surprise: Greece's Brides which is mostly in English was booted. I called that.
Big Surprise: Michael Haneke's Cannes celebrated thriller Caché (Hidden) starring Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil is not on the list. I assume it must have been disqualified due to one of their strange rules regarding international productions. But its absence is the first I've heard of the film having trouble with the AMPAS committee.
