Mongol was released in the US 6 June 2008 (limited), before that it appeared in various film festivals. I actually don't understand why it was nominated last year for Best Foreign Language Film.

I'll investigate, but my working theory is the much more rigorous nomination process for the Foreign Language films. They've got to win the nomination in their country first and then the country's National Film board submits it for Oscar consideration. A lot of the Foreign language films play domestically or, as you say, on the Festival circuit to slowly build buzz before getting domestic release. Anyway, I'll see if I can find the Academy's guidelines.

Post by A_Roode on Sat Feb 07, 2009 8:45 pm

Here's what I found at the undisputable fountain of truth and knowledge we like to call Wikipedia, *lol*

(Regarding eligibility):

"Unlike other Academy Awards, the Foreign Language Film Award does not require films to be released in the United States in order to be eligible for competition. Films competing in the Foreign Language Film category must have been first released in the country submitting them during the eligibility period defined by the rules of the Academy, and must have been exhibited for at least seven consecutive days in a commercial movie theater.[1] The eligibility period for the Foreign Language Film category differs from that required for most other categories: the awards year defined for the Foreign Language Film category usually begins and ends before the ordinary awards year, which corresponds to an exact calendar year. For the 80th Academy Awards, for instance, the release deadline for the Foreign Language Film category has been set on September 30, 2007, whereas the qualifying run for most other categories extends till December 31, 2007.[4]

Although the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film is commonly referred to simply as the Foreign Film Oscar in newspaper articles and on the Internet,[5] such a designation is misleading, since a film's nationality matters much less than its language. Although a film has to be "foreign" (i.e. non-American) in order to be nominated for the Award, it also has to be in a language other than English. Foreign films where the majority of the dialogue is in English cannot qualify for the Foreign Language Film Award, and the Academy has usually applied this requirement very seriously by disqualifying films containing too much English dialogue, the most recent case being that of the Israeli film The Band's Visit (2007).[6] Despite the basic importance of the "foreign language" requirement, a completely dialogueless film such as Le Bal (1983) was still able to get nominated in the Foreign Language Film category.[7]

Another disqualifying factor is a film's television or Internet transmission prior to its theatrical release, hence the Academy's rejection of the Dutch film Bluebird (2004).[8] A film may also be refused if its submitting country has exercised insufficient artistic control over it. Several films have been declared ineligible by the Academy for the latter reason, the most recent of which is Lust, Caution (2007), Taiwan's entry for the 80th Academy Awards.[9] The disqualifications, however, generally take place in the pre-nomination stage, with the exception of A Place in the World (1992), Uruguay's entry for the 65th Academy Awards, which was disqualified because of insufficient Uruguayan artistic control after having secured a nomination. It is the only film so far to have been declared ineligible and removed from the final ballot after having been nominated for the Foreign Language Film Award.

Since the 2006 (79th) Academy Awards, submitted films no longer have to be in an official language of the submitting country.[10] This requirement had previously prevented countries from submitting films where the majority of the dialogue was spoken in a language that was non-native to the submitting country, and the Academy's executive director explicitly cited as a reason for the rule change the case of the Italian film Private (2004), which was disqualified simply because its main spoken languages were Arabic and Hebrew, neither of which are indigenous languages of Italy.[11] This rule change enabled a country like Canada to receive a nomination for a Hindi-language film, Water. Previously, Canada had been nominated for French-language films only, since films shot in Canada's other official language (English) were ineligible for consideration for the Foreign Language Film category. The rule change, however, did not affect the eligibility of non-English speaking American films, which are still disqualified from the Foreign Language Film category due to their nationality. Because of this, a Japanese-language film like Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) or a Mayan-language film like Apocalypto (2006) were unable to compete for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, even though they were both nominated for (and, in the case of Letters from Iwo Jima, won) the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film, which does not have similar nationality restrictions.[12]

Although all films produced inside the United States are ineligible for consideration for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film regardless of the language of their dialogue track, those produced in U.S. overseas possessions are not. Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States, is therefore able to submit films to the Academy, and even received a nomination for Santiago, the Story of his New Life (1989). Since Puerto Ricans have had American citizenship since 1917, the overwhelming majority of the latter film’s cast and crew were thus American citizens. This resulted in a rather uncommon situation, whereby a film was nominated for the Foreign Language Film Award despite most of the people involved in its production being American."

What? Mongol opened in June 2008, therefore it should be eligible. Also under that rule, Let The Right One In (opened October 24th) and Waltz With Bashir (opened December 25th) are ineligible.

If the Film was released in the US between January 1 2008 to midnight at the end of December 31 2008 it is valid anything else is not.
