mhk.jpgWorst Consolation Prize: Michael Haneke is nominated for best director and best original screenplay; his film Amour is nominated for Best Picture. However, no foreign language picture has won any of these categories in the past ten years. (And only one in the past forty-seven years.) As the only Best Foreign Language Film nominee to also be nominated in other categories, Amour is highly likely to win that category and lose the others. In that case, Haneke would still have to leave without an award, as Best Foreign Language Film Oscars are awarded not to individuals but to the country of origin.
