2014 Oscar Predictions: Best Foreign Language Film

"The Great Beauty" is the frontrunner for Best Foreign Language film

“The Great Beauty” is the frontrunner for Best Foreign Language film

I feel really bad about this category. Not because it’s a weak category, or because there is a lack of competition. Mostly because I haven’t watched the majority of the nominees.

Either way, I must trudge on and attempt to predict. The general sentiment is the Italy’s “The Great Beauty” will take the category and I agree. I see no reason why it wouldn’t. It is one of the two nominees that I actually watched and while I found it a bit pretentious, I understand the appeal.

The film I would say has a good chance to upset also happens to be the other film that I watched from the category. “The Hunt” already won the Best Actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival and is similar in its dark tone and sheer brutality to last years winner “Amour”.

Check out my predictions below and my other Oscar predictions here!

Will Win: “The Great Beauty” (Italy)
Could Win: “The Hunt” (Denmark)
Should Win: “The Hunt” (Denmark)
Should have been nominated: “Gloria” (Chile) (Picture a spanish “How Stella Got Her Groove Back”)
