A Academia de Artes e Ciências Cinematográficas de Hollywood liberou a lista completa dos 92 filmes que irão concorrer ao Oscar de Melhor Filme em Língua-Estrangeira.
A Academia informou ainda que a lista bateu dois recordes: o de maior número de inscritos na categoria na história da organização e esta também é a primeira vez que a quantidade de elegíveis ultrapassou o número de 90 produções.
O Brasil concorre com 'Bingo - O Rei das Manhãs', mas nenhuma publicação internacional cita o filme como um dos favoritos.
O mais próximo que temos do Brasil como favorito é o chileno 'Uma Mulher Fantástica'.
Vencedor do Festival de Berlim, no começo do ano, o filme é tido como certo entre os cinco finalistas.
