The Oscars will be announced in about a month but already we’re starting to see the finalists trimmed down in certain categories. It’s still a wild free-for-all in the major acting categories but we had a shakeup in the Best Foreign Language Film category and one of the most acclaimed films of the year will be shut out of the Oscars.

The nine finalists for the category have been announced and the Cannes favorite Blue is the Warmest Color was not among those that made the Oscars cut. Other well received films that didn’t make the cut include The Past, Gloria and Wadjda.

Here’s the list of the films that did make the cut for Best Foreign Language Film this year:

Belgium: “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” Felix van Groeningen, director

Bosnia and Herzegovina: “An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker,” Danis Tanovic, director

Cambodia: “The Missing Picture,” Rithy Panh, director

Denmark: “The Hunt,” Thomas Vinterberg, director

Germany: “Two Lives,” Georg Maas, director

Hong Kong: “The Grandmaster,” Wong Kar-wai, director

Hungary: “The Notebook,” Janos Szasz, director

Italy: “The Great Beauty,” Paolo Sorrentino, director

Palestine: “Omar,” Hany Abu-Assad, director

The Oscars will announce the officially nominated films in the early morning hours of January 16th and only five of the above mentioned finalists will make the last cut.
