ABSTRACT
The article reports on the revision initiated by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for its nomination rules for foreign-language film and sound-editing categories in Los Angeles, California. A foreign film that is submitted for screening no longer requires to use the official language of the region. It can even use various languages as long as it is not dominated by English. The previous regulation fails several films from passing the screening which include Austria's "Cache."
