The Malayali film ‘Jallikattu’ was nominated by India for the 93rd Oscar Award, but now the film has been out of this race. However, India’s expectations still remain at the Oscars. ‘Bittu’ is still in the list of live action short film.

India had high hopes with ‘Jallikattu’. The film reached the Oscar nomination after beating films like Shakuntala Devi, Shikara, Gunjan Saxena, Bhonsle, Gulabo Sitabou, Serious Man, Bulbul, Kamaal, The Pink Sky.

Let me tell you that this is not the first time. Prior to this, Mother India, Salaam Bombay and Lagaan received nonnominations in the foreign language film category. All these films were unsuccessful in winning the award.

15 films have got place in the category of foreign language film at the Oscars.
