Even Without ‘BPM,’ the Academy Compiles a Rich, Diverse Foreign Oscar Shortlist

Even Without ‘BPM,’ the Academy Compiles a Rich, Diverse Foreign Oscar Shortlist
It’s now an Oscar-season tradition as time-honored and near-annual as nomination buzz for Meryl Streep: the critical outcry that greets the pre-Christmas announcement of the nine-film shortlist for best foreign language film. Almost every year, at least one hotly fancied favorite for the award is left off the list, overriding the ecstatic reviews, festival hype and precursor honors that — in the eyes of Oscar pundits, at least — appeared to guarantee it a place.

Since the pre-nomination shortlist was instated in 2006, shock omissions have included “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days,” “Gomorrah,” “Of Gods and Men,” “Le Havre,” “Gloria” and “Two Days, One Night.” last year, France’s much-touted “Elle” failed to make the grade, despite later earning a best actress nod for Isabelle Huppert.

The French have hit an unlucky streak, it seems. Once again, the media conversation surrounding last week’s shortlist announcement centered on the absence of the Gallic submission, as Robin Campillo’s “Bpm (Beats Per Minute)” was left out.

Official Oscar® Entry Best Foreign Language Film from France: ‘Bpm (Beats Per Minute)
In this year’s foreign-language race, a number of Lgbt-oriented titles are vying for attention. France’s Bpm (Beats Per Minute), directed by Robin Campillo, could be the favorite: a rich, sensual, impassioned study of early AIDS activism and gay awakening in Paris, it took the Grand Prix at Cannes and has been winning hearts on the festival circuit and kudos from critics.

After Cannes, Bpm (Beats Per Minute) played Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival among others, winning many awards along the way.

“Impassioned and deeply absorbing. Notable for both its hot-blooded sensuality and its intricate, bittersweet play with memory.”

- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
