Official National Submissions to the Academy Awards

For many years, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has invited each country to select one film to compete in the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. All of the competing films are then screened by a special committee of Academy members, who give each film a rating, with the highest-ranking films receiving nominations.


Some[citation needed] have complained that this "one film per country" law is unfair because prolific film-making countries (particularly France, Italy and Spain) may have several films worthy of being nominated. Others have said that the system is unfair because the nominating bodies in each respective country have often been subject to political or other influences, leading them to reject certain films for political reasons, or select films based on the connections of individual directors or studios.


Proponents of the system however argue that the system is the only way that films from smaller countries can compete. Without allowing them equal footing to major releases from established film-making countries, filmmakers from countries like Georgia, Nepal and South Africa (all of whom have been nominated recently) might have difficulty getting their films seen by Academy members.


Approximately one hundred countries have sent films to compete in this category over the years. However, only sixteen countries have correctly submitted a picture every year for the past fifteen years. They are: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Taiwan.


Of those countries who have had their films accepted by the Academy more than five times, Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Korea (South), Lebanon, Peru, the Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela have never been nominated in this category. Croatia, Serbia and Slovakia have never formally been nominated, but films from these republics were nominated when they were part of Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia. Portugal holds the record for the most submissions without a nominee.


Of particular note is India, the world's most prolific film-making and film-viewing country has never won an academy award, and has only been nominated thrice with Mother India, Salaam Bombay! and Lagaan. This article is about a Hindi film. ... Salaam Bombay! is a 1988 Hindi film directed by Mira Nair, and screenwritten by her longtime creative collaborator,Sooni Taraporevala. ...
