    NIGERIA out again....

    After the Nigerian government and the national film community got super angry at the selection committee for not submitting any of the three candidates, AMPAS gave them a rare second chance.

    And the committee met again today and decided to make sure everyone stayed angry by refusing to send a film, including "Elesin Oba" (Toronto) whose director just passed away and which has gotten fairly good reviews. These Nigerian and Egyptian committees must really hate movies. Why do they even agree to be on the committee if they're not interested in promoting their national cinema?

    I think the Egyptian committee decision is respectable more than anything. There simply were no film worthy to represent the country. Why embarrass themselves? The only one they could’ve sent wasn’t released within the Academy’s deadline. I applaud them even more for not being cheaters like what the Moroccan committee did by submitting Blue Caftan. That’s set to open in cinemas in 2023

    I’d respectfully disagree with you. If Egypt just had a couple of soft-core pornographic films and a no-budget horror movie, okay, I understand that they don’t want to embarrass themselves. But “Kira and El Gin” has a 3.5 on letterboxd and an 8.1 on IMDb. “The Crime” got a Netflix deal. “B19” is by one of Egypt’s most acclaimed indie directors. Do I think that any of these would have earned Egypt’s first Oscar nomination. NO I do not. But somebody must like them and all of them could have gotten exposure by being seen by some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Obviously, Egypt can do what it wants. But I don’t understand losing a free opportunity for exposure. In the recent debate in Nigeria, one filmmaker rightly said “It is not the committee’s job to select a film that will be nominated for an Oscar. Their job is to select the best film to represent Nigeria.”

    So I think Egypt and Nigeria made rather dumb decisions this year. And in the past, so have Albania, Bolivia, Cuba, Macedonia, Paraguay, and the UK, who have all declined to enter any of the entries they received in past years. If they had picked films, at least 10-20 people on this board alone would have sought out the film and someone would have liked it and recommended it to someone else.

    We’ll soon see if Australia, Malaysia and South Africa join the list.

    I've had two people in my life this weekend tell how much they loved Argentina 1985, one a cinephile and one not. Both unsolicited.

    I wonder if Amazon Prime will do a grassroot campaign ala Cold War to reach other noms. The passion was there (Few HFPA voters also loved it)... That's helps this is the only film in their slate who's actually has Oscar hype.

    If Amazon plays their cards right with Argentina, 1985, they can do a Cold War type of performance and even capitalize on that empty slot in Lead Actor for Ricardo Darin

    Also Ricardo Darin was in the last three films nominated for Argentina for IFF (and El Secreto de sus Ojos won). So could be a household name for some.

    Yeaaaah, I had this feeling yesterday while reading reviews that it hits the "perfect" AMPAS spot between intellectual and baity. Watch out, Close and Decision to Leave!

    If Ricardo Darin was someone more known in the states, I'd bet on him for a dark horse spot in Actor.

    Well, there's this at least. Still, I'd feel more confident with "CSI" appearences etc.

    Darin can get the GG and BAFTA nom alongside some mentions like London. Now the GG has FIPRESCI voters, and Argentina, 1985 won that award at Venice.

    Darin barely does anything in that movie so idk, he's solid but hardly super-memorable.

    I have a ticket to watch Saint Omer next Sunday at a local film festival's fall run.


    They are so amazing, they should work together right now.
