      Nine films have made the cut for consideration in the foreign-language category at the Academy Awards. Among them is Iran's "A Separation" from writer-director Asghar Farhadi, which won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film last weekend and has been racking up kudos from critics groups nationwide.
     Also on the list is German director Wim Wenders' "Pina," a 3-D tribute to the career of groundbreaking choreographer Pina Bauschwhich is also on the shortlist for best documentary feature.
The other contenders are: Belgium's "Bullhead," Canada's "Monsieur Lazhar," Denmark's "Superclásico," Israel's "Footnote," Morocco's, "Omar Killed Me," Poland's "In Darkness" and Taiwan's "Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale."

     This year its a morrocan film that got nominated  , last year a  south african film ,Life above all was nominated  . Our own nollywood is no where to be found again this year ,  
actors and producers have been  claiming the third spot in the world after hollywood and bollywood . 
   When will a nollywood movie be nominated for an Oscar Golden Globe or BAFTA ?.It's hightime our producers and directors bring out the professionalism in them and not produce movies with baseless storylines and  popular singers name as title


Oscar full nominations will be announced on  Tuesday, with the ceremony set for Feb. 26.
