TG4 is delighted to announce that The Irish Film & Television Academy has selected an Irish-Language Feature Foscadh (Shelter) as Ireland’s entry for the Oscars®’ Best International Feature Film category (formerly Best Foreign Language category) at the upcoming 94th annual Academy Awards. This is the second year in a row that an Irish Language film has been selected, Arracht was last year’s selection.
Foscadh is part of the Cine 4 scheme, which is supported by Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, and TG4, an initiative set up in 2017 to develop original feature films in the Irish language.
Can a Broadsheet reader recommend or has seen any of the movies nominated for Oscar for Best Film? This is the first year I know nothing about any of them, although I’m curious about Mank for the name alone.
Animator Bard Edlund visualises the paltry diversity of Oscar winners over the years (including his own advance predictions for 2015). He sez:
A lot of noise has been made about the lack of diversity among nominees for the Oscars this year. This video shows how many black, hispanic, and asian winners there have been throughout history, across four main categories — best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, writing (original and adapted screenplays), and directing.
