    Totoo po ang ilang perceptions dito na may konting politics ang Oscars. Pero sa totoo lang po. Ang gaganda talaga ng mga foreign language nominees taon taon. Ilan pa po ito sa unforgettable — City of God (Brazil), Amelie (France), Life is Beautiful (Italy) and Crouching Tiger, HIdden Dragon (China), probably the most successful Foreign Language winner. Thy Womb ang chance natin next year. Let us all pray.
