Oscar nominations out, Indian films fail to make the cut


Los Angeles: The final oscar nominations are out and India’s disappointing record at the awards continue. Indian regional films “Court”, “Jalam”, “RangiTaranga” and “Nachom-ia Kumpasar”, which were vying for a spot in different categories of the upcoming 88th Academy Awards, couldn’t make it to the nominations list of this year’s Oscars.

The nominees for the 88th Academy Awards were announced here on Thursday by Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, actor John Krasinski and filmmakers Guillermo del Toro and Ang Lee.

While filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane’s debut Marathi film “Court” was earlier out of the Best Foreign Language Film category of the prestigious awards gala losing its battle against films like “Embrace of the Serpent” (Colombia), “A War” (Denmark), “Mustang” (France), “Son of Saul” (Hungary), and “Theeb” (Jordan), hopes were high from “Jalam”, “RangiTaranga” and “Nachom-ia Kumpasar”, which were competing in categories including Best Original Song and Best Original Score.
