The article reports on disputes over considerations regarding the entry of Anna Friel starrer "Bathory" to the Oscars. The Slovak Film and Television Academy has chosen Juraj Lehotsky's documentary "Blind Loves," about the romantic lives of four sightless people. However, "Bathory" producer Deana Horvathova and Ales Danielis of Bonton Film claim their $18.3 million mini-epic about a notorious blood-thirsty countess had a better chance of success.
