    Given that Adam McKay has done so well in this category, I kinda wanna predict Ostlund. The movie is way better than anything from McKay but the humor is also immature enough to appeal to a lot of people.

    If a director like Hamaguchi, young and not a veteran, could get a BD nom, then there is now a permanent international spot

    Well, Chazelle is half European. He has French citizenship/nationality thanks to his father Bernard Chazelle.

    Inspired and created by a 100% French classic from the 1960s

    Beside under that point, you can dismiss Inarritu and Del Toro for winning for two American productions instead Mexican ones even if both are Mexican by birth

    I think the easiest way to categorise this "international spot" is if it's a non-American director for a non-English language film. That said, my money is still on Park Chan Wook for this year.

    I don't see much point to talk about such a big directors (Hollywood insiders) in this context.

    I doubt that Kostas was referring to Satyricon, but it's an Italian-French co-production from the 60s, so it technically qualifies.

    Hmmm based on the latest tea of Flowers, I wonder if Marty can score his second win?

    So much for a Scorsese vs. Spielberg race.

    Sad about Scorsese but hopefully this means there'll be room for a deserving newcomer.
