The Oscar race between 67 countries

A record number of 67 countries are competing for the Oscar this year for Best Foreign Film. Here's the final list.

It's a strange and exciting feeling, but I keep telling myself focus on the next movie, focus on the next movie. It's not the destination, it's the journey.

Focus on the next movie. Focus on the next movie. And stay very excited about your first one! It's OK to be a little bit distracted by the Oscar thing :)

Some great films there, but I love CAR and will be rooting for the under-dog.

(Speaking of, Amin, we just got a golden retriever puppy, she reminded me of your dogs :D)

It is about the journey. However, there are destinations along the way will provide you with a clear understanding and a new knowledge base that will continue to allow you to grow and share your journey with others. After attending your film yesterday, I am thankful I was able to participate in that journey. Your writing speaks to your obvious passionate character – I expect that you will continue to utilize that passion in further films. Best wishes in all of your future endeavors!
[If you are looking for idea’s –check into the history of the Pontian Greeks of Asia Minor/Southern Black Sea (modern day Turkey). My grandfather wrote his memoirs of his life in the city and recollections of his childhood – detailing life under Ottoman Rule and his experiences of the Genocide and the transfer of populations between Greece and Turkey.]

Here's a thumbs up to a nomination to the DANCE!!!!

If I'm reading correct, the final nominations are announced in February? Do they wait till the actual award ceremony to announce the five? Will they eliminate films in Oct/Nov/Dec?

Def keep eyes on the journey but remember all your stops along that path!!
