Oscars announce shortlist for Best Foreign Language Film, leaving off 'The Past'

Nine movies advanced to the next round of Oscar voting for Best Foreign Language Film, but The Past was not one of them. Iranian director Asghar Farhadi had won the category for his previous film, A Separation, and his latest was considered a favorite to be recognized again.

Also missing from the list was festival favorite Blue Is the Warmest Color, although that buzzy movie had failed to make the cut-off date for eligibility and was not included for consideration.

But enough about who’s not going to win the Oscar. The Hunt, starring Mads Mikkelson (above) made the cut. Click below for the rest of the list:

Oscars: Academy announces Best Foreign Language Film shortlist

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its shortlist for the 2014 Foreign Language Film Oscar —  totaling a not-so-short 76 submitted films.

The number, up from 71 films last year, sets a new record for the category and includes frontrunners such as Asghar Farhadi’s The Past from Iran, Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt from Denmark, and Wong Kar-Wai’s The Grandmaster from Hong Kong. Abdellatif Kechiche’s festival favorite lesbian drama Blue Is the Warmest Color from France, however, failed to make the cut-off date for eligibility, while India controversially submitted Gyan Correa’s The Good Road over Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox.
