Films up for Foreign Language Oscar

The nine films that have advanced to the next round of competition are:

Austria, The Counterfeiters, Stefan Ruzowitzky, director
Brazil, The Year My Parents Went on Vacation, Cao Hamburger, director
Canada, Days of Darkness, Denys Arcand, director
Israel, Beaufort, Joseph Cedar, director
Italy, The Unknown, Giuseppe Tornatore, director
Kazakhstan, Mongol, Sergei Bodrov, director
Poland, Katyn, Andrzej Wajda, director
Russia, 12, Nikita Mikhalkov, director
Serbia, The Trap, Srdan Golubovic, director

WHAT A SHOCKER. Just like the snub for Volver last year. No Persepolis or 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, and these were the supposed frontrunners. Prediction for this category to be adjusted accordingly in a bit.
