Oscar / Best International Film

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A chronology of the Oscars for the best international film (until 2019 best foreign language film , Best Foreign Language Film of the Year , from the 2020 Academy Awards International Feature Film ).


From 1948 to 1956, this Oscar was awarded as a special prize or honorary Oscar ; it was not until 1957 that the award winner was chosen by the members of the Academy from a selection of five nominated films analogous to the other categories. The Oscar for the best foreign language film has not honored a specific person since its creation, but goes to the film to be honored. The director does not personally win an Oscar, but receives one on his behalf during the award ceremony.


The selection of the German Oscar film is organized by German Films Service + Marketing GmbH (formerly Export-Union des Deutschen Films), which supports various professional associations (directors, producers, film critics, etc.) and institutions (e.g. the German Film Academy ) calls for representatives to be nominated for a nine-member jury, which ultimately determines the Oscar contribution. In Austria, a jury from the professional association of the film and music industry is used to select an Oscar candidate; in Switzerland, a group of experts takes on this task on behalf of the Federal Office of Culture .

After ignoring the highly acclaimed Romanian drama of 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days , the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announced a change in its selection guidelines on June 19, 2008. Only six of the nine foreign productions are selected by a volunteer committee made up of AMPAS members, who only have to see a minimum of the submitted contributions. The remaining three applicants will be selected by a twenty-member foreign language film committee, the Foreign Language Film Award Executive Committee .

The films are listed according to the year in which they were awarded. So Tiger and Dragon got the Oscar in 2001, but it was released in 2000.

Statistics (from 1957)
Most rewarded country Italy (14 wins)
Most frequently nominated country France (39 nominations)
Most nominated country without a win Israel (10 nominations)

Films by Italian directors Federico Fellini and Vittorio De Sica (four wins each) received the most awards. There were also four nominations for works by José Luis Garci , István Szabó , Mario Monicelli , Ettore Scola and Andrzej Wajda , although the films of the last three directors never won the Oscar for best foreign language film.
