In recent years, we have seen the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences break some serious traditions regarding the Oscars. Recently, we saw them changing the name of the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category to ‘Best International Feature Film’. Now, after some months, it has been announced that all the eligible members of the prestigious Academy will be able to cast their respective votes for the final five nominees in this category.

It has been reported by Deadline that the two chairs of International Feature Film’s executive committee, Diane Weyermann, and Larry Karaszewski have sent a letter to the eligible members. The letter also informed out of 10 films, 7 will be shortlisted by the committee and 3 will be the ‘saves’ from the executive committee. Talking about the number of films then, there are 93 films in contention for the distinguished award.

The letter also talking about the screening of shortlisted films for the members of The Academy. As it states, “The shortlisted films will be made available to all Academy members to stream on the Academy Screening Room platform via the member site and our new Apple TV 4 app. Besides, the shortlisted films will be screened theatrically in Los Angeles, London, and New York during nominations voting. Just a reminder, the 92nd Oscars are February 9, 2020 — two weeks earlier than usual. Due to the accelerated schedule, the voting periods for both nominations and finals are shorter than in the past, and we want to make sure every member has the opportunity to see the shortlisted films and participate.”
