2023 Oscars Predictions: Best International Feature
CATEGORY COMMENTARY: Could this be the most competitive year for the international feature category? Looks like it is based on the field that will only yield 15 films on the shortlist when the Academy names them in late December.
Are there any international features that can break outside of this category this year? “All Quiet on the Western Front” and “Close” are somewhat in the best picture discussion while “Decision to Leave” feels like a lone director nom waiting to happen.
There are also acting possibilities such as Vicky Krieps (“Corsage”) and Zar Amir Ebrahimi (“Holy Spider”), who are factors as well.
